PAYDAY: The Heist is total OVERKILL on the PS3

Payday: The Heist for PS3 (PSN)

Hollywood heist movies are, quite simply put, awesome. The high-stakes hits, epic firefights and scene stealing showdowns make for some of the most adrenaline-pumping excitement on the silver screen. But these sort of over-the-top crime capers are not exactly what you would call “legal,” so we here at OVERKILL Software came up with a solution for all you fans out there that want to take up arms and take down a big hit … PAYDAY: The Heist.

Payday: The Heist for PS3 (PSN)

PAYDAY: The Heist is an action-filled first person shooter for the PlayStation Network that lets you take on the role of a hardened career criminal executing intense, dynamic heists in constant pursuit of the next “big score”. Navigate diverse urban settings with three partners in crime — controlled by either AI or your best buddies in co-op multiplayer — and load out with an array of weaponry and equipment as you launch a spectacular crime spree through six high-stake heists, including banks robberies, prisoner extractions and armored car hijackings.

Payday: The Heist for PS3 (PSN)

Whether you’re blowing the roof off a building to steal a safe with a helicopter or emptying the vault at the First World Bank, our action-packed heists will have players on edge and always checking their six. Dynamic environments, adaptive enemy behavior, shifting entry points, FBI agents repelling down on ropes through the skylights, SWAT teams crashing through the windows and special units crawling through the ventilation shafts makes each play-through of every heist a unique fight. Players choose a specialty — assault, sharpshooter or support — to earn weapons and equipment that fit their preferred form of violence. Meet all your objectives and gain experience to unlock trip mines, silenced pistols, machine guns and much, much more.

We will officially be unveiling PAYDAY: The Heist next week in the Sony Online Entertainment booth at the E3 industry trade show, so be on the lookout for more exciting news and gameplay to come!

I have a question, when you enter a bank, there will be hostages right. So, are you able to negotiate with the police, for example let the criminals go and the hostages won’t be killed.

Or is it once you rob the bank, the police will try all means possible to kill you, even if it means the death of hostages?

    You can use hostages to trade your captured buddies back.

    OR use hostages to slow down the assault from the police.

    however FBI will try to set hostages free while you are doing the hesit so keeping them is hard – and if you havent shot the cameras – even harder.

    If you kill hostages – the police will go crazy and ramp up the assault -. and they will be less willing to trade you back if captured.

    See this gamingunion piece for a good run down on that:

Nah, 3rd person for this game would be a horrible idea. This game is like gta but better, this is 1st person not 3rd. I only have one question, when does it come out?


+ Linkinito on June 4th, 2011 at 1:51 am said:

I really hope the game will have original and fun trophies :)

+ TEUFEL_937 on June 4th, 2011 at 5:09 am said:

Awesome, I think I’ll be getting this. A friend and I were talking about a game like this needing to come out :D


+ backhawk124 on June 4th, 2011 at 6:51 am said:

Quite interesting! I will be waiting for its release. E3 is close. Can’t wait!


+ ABTR on June 4th, 2011 at 6:51 am said:

This game look awesome, great graphics and fun shooting gameplay. Well another very good game for psn, I can wait to play it !!!!!!!


+ BLooDTransFuzion on June 4th, 2011 at 2:22 pm said:

In terms of gameplay, will you have opportunity to scope out a target before assaulting it to get the lay of the land or it is more run and gun … prefer the former … detest the latter


+ xRedxViolence on June 4th, 2011 at 7:30 pm said:

@ highjumper that is purely opinion i could just as easily say 1st person is garbage. I’m more of a fan of 3rd person but that doesn’t mean i couldn’t enjoy both. Ps just because this has guns does not make this anything like gta.


+ mekyle on June 4th, 2011 at 8:58 pm said:

@57 how would one rob a bank anyways? With a bow and arrow? Yes it is a little opinionated but I think he was alluding to the bank robbery that happened in GTAIV which was 3rd person and probably won’t be as immersive as this experience will be. Can’t wait to check this out. One question:

Will there be a story behind all of the heists? Just wondering. Either way it’d be cool.


+ MadMeat001 on June 4th, 2011 at 10:14 pm said:

So do this sound like Left 4 Dead? :D


+ Put_Your_Mom_On on June 5th, 2011 at 3:03 am said:

oh wow… i could see myself playing this game over and over and over and over and over haha… do we have a release date?


+ DrUberBloom on June 5th, 2011 at 7:54 am said:

@59, Yeah, Thats what I thought, too.

I mean, Look at the last picture!
– Outline around characters and objects
– Guy’s hand is out, like he is about to pick something up
– 4 Players.

Left 4 Heist? lol badjoke ftw

I can’t wait look very fun


+ SaintMortichai on June 5th, 2011 at 2:47 pm said:

Please keep the community updated on this title, such as demos, the official release date, etc., whenever you can. Thanks for the article on this game. It could have been easily overlooked if not exposed to the masses the right way.


+ Verlante on June 5th, 2011 at 3:51 pm said:

Will this game get add-ons for story and other things such as new guns, new modes, and perhaps time attack modes and modes where you have to save your team or they go under cover to help you get the big score? Cuz this is a entire new playing field, you can do a lot with this one sony. I’m excited and I wanna see more.

+ romcombo on June 5th, 2011 at 6:12 pm said:

Will there be cross platform co-op like Portal 2?


+ sciroccopsn on June 6th, 2011 at 12:45 am said:

i’m not really feeling the graphics of this one, it looks kinda 6 years late; from a gameplay pov seems challenging and fun, hope you release a demo, ill definately give it a try!


+ Phillyblunz on June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 am said:

If your buddy gets caught can we break him outta jail?

Just a smash and grab, hijack a cement truck, smash through the prison walls, all the criminals escape and you get your crew back if they dont get killed during the break out.

Or maybe have to intercept the paddy wagon before it gets to the prison to save your friends?

It would be cool to let someone get caught, then he can source new guys in jail/prison then you break out a new crew? Wouldnt have to show much of the in jail stuff, just his voice on the phone “hey I got a new guy, he’s been doing this awhile, names Pavement, come get us”

Come on you know thats gold.

This game needs:
-Human shields/Hostages
-Large vehicles for smashing paddy wagons and through walls/ Basically Destruction
-The opportunity for betrayal. Perhaps giving the players a solid rating, from flake to Homie
-Let someone be a snitch and try to setup stings!!!! then when you find out who, oh man.
-Pay off people working at banks for info/times/money amounts, etc.

Looking forward to this game, dont let me down now.

+ mgsnull617 on June 6th, 2011 at 9:44 am said:

@37 Rosol
Your rite this game reeks of bad COD AI only cause it appears 1st person. However I cant judge till I play it. I hope this game is better than Gta though. Sony aint got ish for me unless they can make a new Hitman or release a package for the old ones. There hasnt been a good fps since bond64


+ mgsnull617 on June 6th, 2011 at 10:06 am said:

The game seems too much like kain and lynch….Is it like hitman can I use logic, wit, and stealth. Or do I just kill indiscrimtly with infinite ammo? WTF come on with the COD style upgrading guns killstreaks already its played out. I want something new
