Payday 2: Crimewave Edition Release Date Announced

505 Games has recently announced that Payday 2: Crimewave Edition will be released on June 16, 2015.

Payday 2: Crimewave Edition is a new edition of the co-op shooter Payday 2. It contains over a year’s worth of DLC packs and content updates, including the popular Big Bank Heist. Another addition is Clover, the first female heister in the game. The game will also have improved frame rates, better textures, and 1080p resolution.

This game will also feature new heists with new contacts, such as the Dentist (voiced by Giancarlo Esposito of Breaking Bad fame) and the Butcher (voiced by Mira Furlan of Lost and Babylon 5 fame). There will also be a wider variety of weapons, new masks, and a new perk system for more customization. A fifth skill tree has been introduced for players who prefer to rely on stealth. Finally, there is a preplanning stage to help players of a perfectionist nature.

Pre-ordering Payday 2: Crimewave Edition will unlock a variety of goodies, including: red dot weapon sight modification for all rifle weapons, the exclusive Skull mask, a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One exclusive mask, a unique mask pattern titled 'I LOVE OVERKILL,' a unique color pattern, and bundles of in-game cash.
