A word from Almir, Producer of PAYDAY 2

Hi everyone,

So let me just say it - wow. What a Pre-Order fest it's become and continues to be. At OVERKILL, we're humbled by the community response we've been getting. We're also strengthened - the positive feedback we've received means - more than ever - that we want to finish strong and give you guys the best Heist game we can.

For anyone who's been cable tied in the last 36 hours, this is what's up;
- PAYDAY 2 Pre-Orders hit Steam number 1 spot - all categories after only 3 hours.
- PAYDAY: The Heist hit top 5 as well with a 75% discount that ends on May 30th.
- We launched the teaser trailer for our PAYDAY Web Series coming this summer where you'll get to know our favorite career criminals a little better.

The community forums have been booming. We read it all, we've listened and - in what I would dare to say is becoming a classic OVERKILL way - we've reacted.

Let me explain.

The Steam page for PAYDAY 2 has been updated based on your feedback. We've made it clear that PAYDAY 2 will have no micro-transactions whatsoever (shame on you if you thought otherwise!) and we've made it more clear that the PAYDAY loot bag is part of the Career Criminal Edition as well.

We've seen countless questions about dozens of subjects, but there's been one thing in particular that people have been asking for.

Due to popular demand, we're proud to say that we're releasing 4-packs of both the Standard Pre-Order Edition and the Career Criminal Edition - available right now. When you buy these, you do it to the prize of 3 - get one for free.

That's a pretty good deal if you ask me. So make sure to get your friends convicted! I, ehm, mean, make sure you convince them to get hooked on PAYDAY 2!

On behalf of the OVERKILL staff - thank you!

Let's do this!

Almir
Producer - OVERKILL - a Starbreeze Studio.

Great news.

Any reason why the UK price on CCE went up Almir?

I think everyone here can agree, it's not just the community support that makes you guys what you are. It's also your willingness to include us - your fanbase - into what's going on. Keeping your players excited is an extremely powerful thing. You guys are the best.

I think it is. I had $70 in my steam wallet before the release and when I bought it yesterday, I had $20 after.

In the UK it's just shot up by 30%, I'll wait and see if other retailers sell the game closer to relase.
