The fact that the launch of PayDay 3 It didn’t go entirely smoothly might be an understatement, but all in all, we did have fun with the game. As you here Starbreeze Studios is hoping to take the game to the next level with update 1.02. There will be two new heists, a new skill line and a lot of animations become added to the game.
We can be brief about the two heists, as they are reworked versions of ‘Cook Off’ and ‘Turbid Station’, two heists that we already know from the previous iteration. Both heists are equipped with some extra elements in the environment, so that it feels fresh. For example, in the first heist you will find a larger map and a new space in the garage. In Turbid Station, you will have to deal with more verticality and players will be able to slide under the train for more stealth.
The new Transporter skill line ensures that you will be able to carry two pockets instead of one and also that you will be able to run faster with objects or people on your shoulder. Furthermore, you can intimidate people if you carry a body with you and there is an option to bring an extra deployable. Another new, stand-alone skill from Transporter is ‘Catapult’, which will allow you to throw bags of loot 30% farther, which will increase the speed of a heist.
Here you can find a Twitch stream in which community manager Elisabeth E. and lead producer Andreas Häll Penninger elaborate on the new skill line.
