What is Payday 2? Video Released and Pre-Order Offer Revealed

Game Director David Goldfarb takes us through what makes Payday 2 different from the original Payday The Heist, and other shooters out there on the market
505 Games has released a new trailer for PAYDAY 2, the sequel to PAYDAY: The Heist Patch developed by Overkill Software. PAYDAY 2 is an action-packed, four-player co-op shooter that once again lets gamers don the masks of the original PAYDAY crew - Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf and Chains - as they descend on Washington D.C. for an epic crime spree.
The new CRIMENET network offers a huge range of dynamic contracts and players are free to choose anything from small-time convenience store hits or kidnappings, to major league cyber-crime or emptying out major bank vaults for that epic PAYDAY. While you are in D.C., you can participate in the local community and run a few political errands. Up to four friends co-operate on the hits and as the crew progresses the jobs become bigger, better and more rewarding. Along with earning more money and becoming a legendary criminal comes a new character customization and crafting system that lets crews build and customize their own guns and gear.
PAYDAY 2 will launch in August 2013.
Update: in addition to the previously announced PAYDAY 2 Lootbag DLC pre-order, there will now be PAYDAY 2 Collector's Edition available at North American retail outlets for Xbox 360 and PS3, priced at $59.99. It includes the full game, a mask, gloves, a $100 bill wallet and the Soundtrack CD.
