Payday 2 And Speedrunners Crossover DLC Adds New Masks And Characters As Part Of Spring Break Event
Crossover events are just the best. Wasn't it great when Cheers ran into the gang at St. Elsewhere and thereby proved that everything that happened in that famed Boston bar was a dream? In that grand tradition, co-op heist game PAYDAY 2 and sidescrolling racer Speedrunners have gotten together and each title is bringing the other into its gameplay.
Starting today as part of the Spring Break 2015 event in PAYDAY 2, players can purchase Speedrunners and gain access to a new set of four masks to confuse and bewilder their hopeless marks whilst robbing banks. You can don the masks of Hot Head, the flaming tiki head; Unic, the Unicorn runner; the titular Speedrunner with his aerodynamic helmet and who I believe is The Falcon.
Speedrunner and The Falcon are sworn enemies, so it's nice to see them getting along for the greater good of knocking over banks.
Meanwhile, PAYDAY 2 characters Dallas, Wolf, Hoxton and Cloaker join the growing roster of Speedrunner characters. You have to unlock them via in-game secrets.
In order to unlock the new characters, you must first buy the other game. So if you own Speedrunners, buy PAYDAY 2 and vice versa.
"We love collaborations at tinyBuild, in fact SpeedRunners itself is a collaboration between us and DoubleDutch Games! Seeing our characters as masks in PAYDAY 2, and putting their iconic characters into SpeedRunners... Well, that's about as awesome as it gets." says Alex Nichiporchik, CEO, tinyBuild GAMES
"As a bonus to the Spring Break event, we made this collaboration happen with our friends over at tinyBuild and DoubleDutch Games. SpeedRunners and PAYDAY 2 have much in common as intense multiplayer games. For the first time ever, our PAYDAY characters also make the jump to another game. Making this happen was a no-brainer and a perfect fit!" says Almir Listo, Global Brand Director, Starbreeze AB
