The Future of PAYDAY 2.
The future of PAYDAY 2 is a complicated but bright looking matter. First up PAYDAY 2 is coming to Virtual Reality! Using the HTC Vive you’ll be able to have full body control… …which allows for actions like interacting with the environment and firing your weapon simultaneously… …or separate control of your akimbo weapons. PAYDAY 2 VR shares a platform with PAYDAY 2… …meaning players playing the VR version will still have all their levels, unlocks, skills and so on from the PC version… …AND will be able to play in the same lobbies as them. Think of it as the exact same game with a VR perspective and controls. PAYDAY 2 VR will be free to all owners of PAYDAY 2, with a beta coming out later this year. Next up we got a look at some of the gameplay for PAYDAY CRIME WAR, a mobile PVP game… …where one team plays as the police against another team playing as heisters. It looks… like a mobile game, but not nearly as bad as I was expecting. CRIME WAR will be out Soon™ for Android and iOS devices. Now for the main event: PAYDAY 2 ULTIMATE EDITION is coming to a Steam store near you! This is every single paid DLC available as one package… …with the exception of limited time promotions such as the COMPLETELY OVERKILL Pack… …and one final DLC that I’ll get to in a moment. This package is designed to make the game less daunting to new players, who will be able to purchase all of the content at once… …rather than be overwhelmed by what DLC they should get. You’ll still be able to buy PAYDAY 2 as a base game without any paid DLC… …but PAYDAY 2 ULTIMATE EDITION will include the base game and everything you’ll need to be an effective heister. ULTIMATE EDITION is launching on June 8th at a $45 USD price point… …although not only will be offered at a 10% discount for a short while on release… …but if you already own the base game or any paid DLC, the combined price of everything you already have will be subtracted from the cost of the ULTIMATE EDITION. Meaning the more DLC you already own, the cheaper ULTIMATE EDITION will be. Buying ULTIMATE EDITION will be substantially cheaper than buying each and every DLC at full price… …but if you have the cash right now, all PAYDAY 2 DLC is currently 85% off. The sale ends on June 8th when PAYDAY 2 ULTIMATE EDITION releases. Next up is something out of left field; remember the April Fools prank OVERKILL did with Ethan at h3h3productions… …adding him as a character and all? Yeeeah well, that’s, not a prank anymore. Both Ethan and Hila will be added together as heisters in a single paid DLC, for $4.99 USD. Aside from Valve’s cut, all money earned from this DLC will be going straight to h3h3productions… …which is why this DLC is not part of the ULTIMATE EDITION, and only available separately. No matter how you feel about the idea of adding Youtube celebrities into the game, it’s still two characters for the price of one… …and will be helping h3 out of their financial trouble they’ve been unfairly put into. A link to their channel is in the description. The Ethan and Hila Character Pack will be available Fall of this year. And finally, after the release of that DLC all future updates for PAYDAY 2 will be absolutely free! No more paid DLC after the Ethan and Hila Character Pack. This is great news for sure, especially considering that PAYDAY 2’s support is going to continue until October of 2018… …a full year longer than most of us were expecting. I’m hype as hell for all of this, even if it means there’s not much point in doing DLC reviews anymore… …since you either own all the DLC or you don’t, for the most part. Still, for completionist’s sake I’ll review all of the DLC, although my message will be changing from “should you buy this?” to “was this a good addition?”. That’ll be everything. Thanks for watching, and take it easy!
