Heisters,

The PAYDAY clan Team Evil is currently hosting a huge Charity Stream. You can check their twitch.tv channel out and win fine prizes like GOTY editions of PAYDAY 2 and other cool things. Check out the message below with more information.

Ho Ho Ho Heisters!

Christmas is coming... and with that, a Charity stream!

It's kicking off right now - check out the Stream at http://www.twitch.tv/paydayteamevil

We are playing for Extra Life, come along and help them raise money for a good cause!

We are also handing out a lot of prizes: PAYDAY 2 game keys, DLCs, even the GOTY edition! Additionally, Team Evil will be giving away a top-end GFX card that will be shipped to the top donator!

Additionally, people who donate over a certain threshold will have the option of being recognised with a cosmetic feature that will be added in an upcoming version of HoxHud and Team Evil will be periodically enabling Olipro's "Twitch Trolls Payday" mod to let you folks mess with the streamer's game!

To donate to Extra Life, please go here -> http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.parti

Thanks for your support!

- Team Evil


To spice things up, I'll be interviewed in one of the coming days during their stream. We'll be sure to ping the commuinity so you can join in and ask question and enjoy yourselves. Have a good one heisters.

Heisters,

We've received a message from Tatsuto and everyone else at the Last Bullet modding community.

It's that merry time of year again, and from all of us at Last Bullet, we'd like to wish you all the best.

We have had our elves working around the clock, with not even a potty break in order to bring you the Christmas Community Pack.

This mod will add some very festive mods to the game.

What kind of mods I hear you ask? Well you'll have to wait and see ;)

There are two days to our site; sneak peek today and release tomorrow!

You can check out the two day site here!

Merry Christmas everyone

- Tatsuto

Heisters,

We're live with Update 50 and the bundle masks!

First of all - Thank you for your support these past years. We in the OVERKILL crew salute you for your support. From us to you, happy holidays!

We’ve made a lot of content since PAYDAY 2 was released. As we look back on 2013/2014 we want to summarize all the content for any new heister who wants to join the crew. It’s easier than ever to sit down and play all the content PAYDAY 2 has to provide: just pick a bundle and get started. We’ve made the deals even more sweet by adding a natural discount to each bundle.

Each bundle comes with its unique mask; own all the heists? You get the heist mask. All weapons? The weapon mask. If you already bought these before, you get the masks automatically.

Buy the PAYDAY 2: GOTY Edition here!
Buy the PAYDAY 2: Heist Bundle here!
Buy the PAYDAY 2: Gage Weapon Pack Bundle here!






PAYDAY 2: GOTY Edition
Score big and bring your game completely up-to-date with every DLC we have released in a single package. The GOTY bundle sees every weapon, every heist, the Heist Bundle/Weapon Bundle masks and every track of music – all bagged and bundled into a single, easy-to-secure package.

GOTY Mask – Arch Nemesis

Nemesis, as defined by the dictionary;
noun
[ahrch nem-uh-seez]
1. Something that a person cannot conquer, achieve, etc.: “That Chinese buffet at lunch proved to be my arch-nemesis.”
2. An opponent whom a person cannot defeat.
3. In classical mythology. The goddess of divine retribution.
4. An agent or act of retribution or punishment.
As defined by Hoxton: “That fuckin’ dozer. He’s my arch-fucking-nemesis. ‘Orrible cunt!”





PAYDAY 2: Gage Weapon Pack Bundle
Guns! Guns! Guns! You want ‘em, and Gage has got ‘em! Maybe he’s trying to clear stock, but he’s packaging ALL of his weapon DLC into a single mega-bundle. You like power at range? Well, this bundle comes with a variety of sniper rifles. Want power up close? Then the broad selection of shotguns is right here. Assault rifles, LMG’s, pistols – if Gage has it, it’s in here.

Gage Weapon Pack Bundle Mask – Robo-Arnold

Iconic, time-travelling cyborg star of the ‘Exterminator’ movie series. In the first movie, he was sent to kill the mother of the leader of the future rebellion before she can steal the chip left by her son who was also her father… In the past. Noted for his deadpan delivery of the catchphrase “Await my return”.




PAYDAY 2: Heist Bundle
The Heist Bundle brings all of our paid heist DLC together for the first time. Want a fast, loud payout? Then ambush high-paying armored trucks all across the city with Armored Transport. Or perhaps you fancy taking down the ruthless Russian mob-boss, the Commissar, in Hotline Miami? Or take on the biggest challenge yet, and roll downtown to crack the Benevolent Bank – or try stealing the Diamond from the McKendrick museum in The Diamond heist.

Heist Bundle Mask – The Nun


A Catholic nun may not seem like the obvious choice for a terrifying mask, unless you know an actual Catholic nun. In which case, you’ll know any notions of gentle, grandmotherly penguins are without merit. These bitter crones are the personification of evil, dishing out thrashings to any young buttocks within reach.

PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU HAVE MODS, YOU WILL CRASH!
If you "suddenly" crash after the update, it's because your game is modified. Use the threads in the forum to solve your issue. Uninstall your mods if you can't start the game or wait until the mod developers have updated the mods to work with the game.

We've gotten a lot of crash logs recently that we can't do anything about because it's all about mods crashing your games.

If you have tampered with your game files, you've done so at your own risk knowing that it will affect your software.

As a last resort, e-mail us directly.

Q: What about us who have been supporting you since the beginning and bought all DLC? Don't we deserve these masks?
A: If you already own the DLC's, you have these masks automatically unlocked. OF COURSE we did it this way. Did you even read the announcement?!

Keep those helmets flying!

Heisters,

We're live with patch 49.1.

One change - we've updated the .exe file of the game so that it disables Hoxhud. The reason is that an alarming amount of people are crashing and think the game is crashing because the update. Fact is, the game is crashing because you are using mods at your own risk. Whenever we go live with a new update or a change, there is always a risk that if you have tampered with any files, the game will crash. Keep this in mind going forward. In this case, there are two outstanding issues that needs to be updated in Hoxhud for it to work properly.

I'm sure the Hoxhud developers will fix this soon. Meanwhile, we do this Hotfix so people stop crashing.

Patch 49.1 changelog

Update size: 645.6 KB

General
  • Updated the .exe file to disable Hoxhud

Heisters,

We're live with Update 49, The Diamond and the Clover Character Pack!

Buy the Diamond Heist here!
Buy the Clover Character Pack here!

Update 49 changelog

Update size: 3.4 GB

General
  • New LOD-system - With this update we introduce a new technical optimization that relieves the pressure of the GPU. The system introduces streaming of LOD (Level of Detail) data which is a big improvement from the previous system. The optimization will affect everyone and your experience will now be perceived as smoother; especially if you are using a graphics card that necessarily isn't "top-of-the-line".

The Diamond Heist
  • Introducing the Diamond heist, an all-new loud-and-stealth heist
  • Introducing Pre-planning to the heist so you can perform the perfect crime
  • 4 new masks – Anubis, Medusa, The Cursed One and Pazuzu
  • 4 new patterns
  • 4 new materials
  • 7 achievements

Clover Character Pack
  • Clover, a new playable character
  • Burglar perk deck
  • The Queen's Wrath, a new assault rifle
  • Clover's Shillelagh, a new melee weapon
  • Clover's mask and Clover Begins

Skills
  • Introducing Multi Skill Builds - Are you tired of re-speccing every time you want to switch from stealth to loud? Have you ever wanted to have multible skill builds but never could afford the skill costs or bother remembering your favorite set-up? If so, this is your lucky day; introducing the Multi Skill Build feature. Construct up to five Skill Builds - profiles of skills and perk decks. Need a Skill Set heavy on stealth for Framing Frame? Jumping between a Fugimind and a Techforcer set-up? No problem – create a Skill Build each, save it out and you're good to go. Going loud in Hotline? Easy. Switch back to a loud Skill Build. With a few clicks, you're always ready to bring the best skills for any heist.

Level
  • Fixed an issue where players could get out of the map by standing on the helicopter.
  • Fixed an issue on White Xmas where the audio stopped when the pilot said good bye in the helicopter
  • Fixed an issue on White Xmas where a package got stuck in ground
  • Fixed an issue on White Xmas where loot bags could get stuck in the lumber yard
  • Fixed an issue on White Xmas where packages stopped spawning after three hours. They will never stop spawning now
