PAYDAY: The Heist Available today on PlayStation Store

Chris Sturr's Avatar + Posted by Chris Sturr on Oct 18, 2011 // Executive Director of Business Development, Sony Online Entertainment

Attention PAYDAY crew! The time has come – PAYDAY: The Heist officially launches today on the PlayStation Network, developed by OVERKILL Software and published by Sony Online Entertainment (SOE). Grab your masks, don’t forget the ammo and most importantly make sure you bring along your friends!

Dive full force into six heists of co-op madness, fighting off cops, stealing large sums of money and embarking on the ultimate high-intensity, first-person shooter adventure. To kick-off launch, take a look at the never before seen Heat Street Heist trailer (which might look familiar to some of you movie buffs):


In case you missed them previously, here’s the entire series of heist trailers…

  • Slaughterhouse – View the trailer that highlights one of the most difficult heists featured in the game. Click here for trailer.
  • Green Bridge – Intense bridge explosions, mass destruction and lots of casualties all in the hopes of a successful prisoner escape over the deep sea. Click here for trailer.
  • Diamond Heist – Stealthily commandeer a caper of the worlds’ most precious stones. Click here for trailer.
  • Panic Room – Burst onto the seedy scene of a deal gone bad and blast out the roof in order to retrieve the big bucks. Click here for trailer.
  • First World Bank – Sweet talk your way into the vault and grab the goods in the classic First World Bank Heist. Click here for trailer.

Check out the PAYDAY: The Heist website for more info. Thanks again for your patience and support. I’m looking forward to the in-game action!

Why didn’t you release at midnight? And why do PSN PLAY people get it early? They technically didn’t even pay for and the people who preordered did and we get shafted.

@FOUR95NATIVE

It’s only updated on Tuesday since last year. Other times it was on a Thursday.

I got my voucher last night.
Downloaded it the whole night, and in the morning, I started playing it.
Really really good game. Frame rate is up to par.

This game has real potential to become a disk game. Overkill, you guys should make a retail version with tons and tons of maps and upgrades.

Great game, get it guys.

i will never pre order a game from the play station store again, too many problems. the game stop store was right, they dont care about our wants just keep lying and telling us what we want to hear great system your word is a joke though……………….. last time i ever pre order again, take your free ten dollars and keep it at the end of the month tooo.

Got mine at 1am last night. Very cool. And didn’t pay for it? Um, I bought 4 friggin’ games (that rocked) to get it for free, and I did it months ago! No luck or unfairness about it.

Thanks!

Long Live Complain

Only On PS3

+ donsheff on October 18th, 2011 at 2:35 pm said:

so let me get this straight, if you bought those 4 games and got PayDay for free, you can download it; but if you pre-ordered it, you can’t….wtf is that!!!

+ AllTimeBest20 on October 18th, 2011 at 2:36 pm said:

@devilmosh

Yes, actually it is unfair. You did pay and you payed plenty to get the game. But there are still tons of us that payed for it in advance a while ago as well. I had no interest in any of the other games involved in the promotion only Payday thus there was no extra value in it for me to buy four games I would never play to get one. So you are telling me, and the others here that just because you had enough interest, and funds as far as some people go, that you bought the other games that you should get it well before the rest of us. Even though most of us, based on the comments, payed the full 20 bucks in advanced. If you see that as completely fair then you must define fair based on the Fox News definition of the word.

Too many crybabies, whiners, and complainers in the blog. Great job overkill I can’t wait to play it when the store updates.

@devilmosh

You payed for those 4 games. You didn’t pay for Payday.

Pre-orders from gamestop 1200am possible midnight release party, … ppl leave said party (or store w/out party)they’re happy and they haven’t even got home yet or played it …

Preorders VIA PSN Tuesday ??? central time … ppl awake at 1200am Tuesday waiting for it to be in the store… 200pm same day ppl still awake trolling the store ,forums and blog looking for they’re preorder they paid for…
Unless you’ve been through this before this is what ur day would be like… 400pm Tuesday release day for payday the heist I’m eating lunch … 600pm central time I turn on my ps3 and download my preorder I paid for, not mad because I know the store won’t update for a few hours

fasho, i would be just as pissed as all of you if i wasnt at work and wont be home till 8pm est.

@ M-Easy

I’m sorry that you don’t see how this is wrong. Look at it this way. If you pre-ordered a game at Gamestop and went to pick it up and they said sorry you have to wait till later, but then another guy came in and they handed it right over and you are standing there like WTF I pre-ordered too and the guy at GS just says “Oh, well he bought 2 games.” You would be pissed too. You misunderstand I am not mad at Overkill or any less excited about this game all of my anger is directed at Sony and whoever directly oversees the PSN update.

@AllTimeBest20

Boohoo so you/we have to wait a few more hours for the game, who cares. I pre-ordererd game also & I don’t care that people got it last night at midnight, I was fast asleep anyway. Its not a competitive MP game those few people aren’t going to have an advantage over you. Calm down, gaming is still a hobby its not a life or death situation. Grow up.

ive been waiting all day for it. wasnt there at midnight, or 6am est (midnight in hawaii). the store usually updates here in the evening. the second i see it, im downloading it and playing all night. based on the reviews, trailers and blogs, A+ downloadable game from overkill with real potential of being something big. would love to see i disc game with new DLC. cant wait!

@ M-Easy
You are right on that man, it is a hobby and people do need to calm down (even though im being a hipocrit now.) it is very true.

and let us complain

+ exiquio1983 on October 18th, 2011 at 3:07 pm said:

I won’t complain. I think people who do have the right to as they paid for the already delayed game and some people who didn’t pay for it got it already. I will say for myself that this is the first and last time I will ever preorder a game on PSN due to this experience which I consider horrible. I look forward to eventually being able to download a game I ordered a month ago.
