PAYDAY 2: Ultimate Edition - Overkill_Joakim

Crimefest 2017!

Hey Heisters, robbers, criminals and pro-gamers! We from the OVERKILL Crew just want to thank you for being the most awesome community ever existing! PAYDAY: The Heist has been out for six years while PAYDAY 2 just turned four! This would never have happened without the support, frustration and love that every one of you has invested during these years. With this love in mind we always try to give back big time once a year so now it’s time for Crimefest 2017!

Locke And Load!

This year’s Crimefest will be a nice adventure taking part in the northern part of the US, and when I say north, I mean fucking freezing cold Alaska! Who knows what is happening up there and what the PAYDAY Gang is up to! As usual we will have a few challenges, masks, some nice quality of life features, side jobs and maybe a new character? Since you haven’t had a Heist in a while, I will make sure you get 2!

To avoid updating problems we will follow the success of last year’s event and release content every other day and have something else every other day-day.

Do anyone even know what the icons mean !?!

So, as you might have figured out already Crimefest starts the 19th of October and stretches to the 28th of October so make sure to book that computer at your local library or tell your teacher that you need your laptop with you at all costs!

Keep Truckin’

It was a while since i posted but I’m still here pushing out content and living life,
this time of the year is usually a very exciting time, games get released, payday usually have a nice event and RAID is releasing in less then 24hrs.

I have spent the last 10 days down here in Zagreb at LGL HQ with the team and it has been exciting times since the Beta.
The team has pushed through a lot of changes and updates and the games have improved a lot!
Releasing a game is one of the coolest thing a developer ever goes through in his career, and down here you can almost touch the atmosphere. Its an honor to have been invited to test out the game and be down here with the guys.

In the meantime i couldn't stand having Almir in the office anymore so me and the guys shambled together some money and sent him overseas to Ethan Klein to do a H3H3 podcast tomorrow, he will be talking there about Payday and its upcoming future and also talk about the release of RAID.

The LGL team will have a stream now at 18:00 CET make sure to check it out. It will be Ilija talking about new maps you haven’t seen, changes since the beta, we do some Q&A, and we have a special guest, Connor Shaw, seasoned streamer and youtuber. Watch it here

Remember if you want to get the preorder items for Raid you have less then 24hrs to get it!
Get it here

And what is the next mask you want, My beard or Almirs face ?
You know the answer..
