Payday 2 is a 3D four-player cooperative shooter developed by Ulf Andersson and is available on Steam for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, HTV Vive, and Occulus Rift. In Payday 2 players will find themselves working alongside three other players to complete some of the greatest criminal heists of all time in Washington DC.
Contracts will need to be taken to go on missions, and each contract can vary from something as simple as a convenience store robbery up to things as monumental as diamond and bank heists. Contracts will become increasingly more difficult as players progress alongside each other, unlocking more gear and different skills with which they can hone their sinister craft.
