Payday 2 Crimewave Edition Coming To PS4 & Xbox One In June, Watch The New Trailer With Upgraded Graphics
Cooperative bank robbery game Payday 2 was a hit on PC and last gen consoles, and will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this June.
There's still no specific release date since its initial announcement, but what we do have today is a new trailer for PS4. Called Payday 2 Crimewave Edition on current generation systems, it will bring the same multiplayer gameplay alongside upgraded visuals.
Payday 2 Crimewave Edition features plenty of content that was added following the original game's launch, including Old Hoxton, Clover, Dragan, the Big Bank Heist, and the Diamond Heist. Those specific visual upgrades including 1080p support, "improved" framerate (specific number not listed), and improved texture quality. The game clearly looks good in the new gameplay trailer, and it's available for pre-order now.
The impending current gen release also marks the end of updates for the title on PS3 and Xbox 360, developer Overkill stated. The team doesn't like that is has to end support for the systems either, but technical limitations on decade-old hardware make producing content for both sets of consoles impossible. Pre-ordering the new game on PSN or Xbox Live wil get you 25 percent off and the Hard Time Loot Bag bonus content. The site has a full list of what the Crimewave Edition will contain in terms of DLC from the original game, roughly $80 of added value.
