PayDay 2 Crimewave Edition Nabs a Release Date

Overkill Software announced recently that its co-op heist game, PayDay 2, is coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on June 12th in Europe and a few days later on June 16th for the US.

The current-generation version of the cult hit shooter, called PayDay 2: Crimewave Edition, will launch with over one year of additional post-release content along with a handful of technical improvements, including enhanced textures and a 1080p display. Similar to a Game of the Year Edition that other popular games receive.

Pre-ordering the game will also net players the “Hard Time Loot Bag”, which contains a number of in-game bonuses, including:

  • Red dot weapon sight modification available for use on all rifle weapons
  • Exclusive Skull mask
  • PlayStation 4 or Xbox One exclusive mask
  • Unique mask pattern titled “I LOVE OVERKILL”
  • Unique color pattern, only available with this unlock
  • Bundle of in-game cash

Overkill also announced that they also offer a 25% discount on all digital versions of the game that are pre-ordered between now and launch in June.

So if you are even remotely interested in this version of the game, then now is the perfect time to hop on board.

According to an agreement between Overkill Software owner Starbreeze and publisher 505 Games, even more content and support is in store for PayDay 2 on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, so there’s still plenty more to look forward to in the future.
