GET HEISTING, SON!
Simple math: (Dark Knight bank heist – the ensuing string of betrayals) X that shoot-out from Heat + 4-player co-op = Payday 2: Crimewave Edition. An analogy I am sure has been done to death already, but once you’ve experienced the thrill of boosting $1 million in gold from a National Bank and barely escape the almost overwhelming D.C. Police force, you’ll know exactly what I’m referring to. Unless of course, you’ve never seen The Dark Knight or Heat, in which case this will all be new to you. In fact, depending on what version of Payday you’ve previously played, a lot of this may or may not be new to you anyway. The Crimewave Edition brings the Payday 2 console experience in line with the current PC version, including all the updates, new heists, characters, gear and other luxuries that us console luddites weren’t afforded.
We sent out Ashley to go rob a few banks, take on a few armoured cars and generally become the police’s next public enemy no.1 (in game you understand, we would never condone any naughty behaviour!) Ashley took some time out while hiding from the police and counting his loot to tell us what he thought of Payday 2 Crimewave Edition.
