Unleash your inner bandit in ‘Payday 3’, launching on September 21st
At the Xbox Games Showcase held during the Summer Game Fest Sunday, we were offered our inaugural peek at the gameplay from the latest installment in the longstanding Payday video game franchise. Despite the series’ reins being handed over from Overkill to Starbreeze Studios, it seems that Payday 3 is set to maintain the high-intensity, pulse-pounding first-person shooting gameplay that has won over so many fans.
The demo on display at Sunday’s event featured a recognisable gang of four gun-wielding robbers embarking on a daring heist, terrorizing and ransacking a local bank. They employed a blend of fearsome coercive measures, advanced gadgetry, and an impressive barrage of bullets. The game seems to continue with traditional mechanics such as taking hostages, a feature that previously allowed players to exchange captured civilians when they sustain heavy damage and face “arrest”. Payday 3 is slated for release on September 21st for Xbox X|S, with other platforms expected to follow suit.
