Payday 2 made news a while back when it became profitable on pre orders alone which proves the following:
- Everyone loves a good bank heist
- Whoever was on the game's marketing team deserves a HUGE bonus
"As the list-one on Steam (PC) and Playstation Network in August, we note that
PAYDAY 2 is an established brand. " - Bo Andersson Klint, CEO of Starbreeze AB.
Payday 2 is the sequel to Payday: The Heist a co-operative action shooter similar to Valve's Left 4 Dead. But instead of a ragtag band of people surviving the zombie apocalypse you're master criminals pulling off bank heists!
Most of the gameplay mechanics from the original have been left intact, but improved upon as noted by many reviewers. Having not played the original I can't say if it's true but I can say that Payday 2 is one hell of a fun game!
