Payday 2
Payday 2 Collector's Edition Unveiled, New Trailer Asks 'What is Payday 2?'

Don't be getting any ideas now, will you? 505 Games and Overkill Software have unveiled the Payday 2 Collector's Edition, which bundles the game with what appears to be a complete kit for performing a bank robbery. Although, thinking about it, there are no guns in the box. You'll have to buy that bit yourself. Not that we condone that kind of thing.

In the Payday 2 Collector's Edition - which appears to be for North America only - you get the game in special packaging with a Payday clown mask, blue rubber gloves, a $100 bill wallet and a copy of the original soundtrack on CD. It's available to pre-order for $59.99.

Payday 2 is coming to consoles on August 13th, 2013. Check out the Collector's Edition below, and a new video that asks "what is Payday 2?" It then tells you what Payday 2 is, which is helpful. We'll tell you now though, if you like. It's a game in which you rob banks. Done. Watch the trailer anyway.

Looks okay at best.
Thought Payday 2 was a Live Arcade release, like the first one was for Ps3. It looks more like a budget title though, so I'm not expecting something great here, but it might give me some fun action for a couple of hours :-)

How much is this special edition? The game itself seems like it would be a $40 game. I would definitely not pay $60 for the full game, because like #4 said, it seems more like a budget title that we would see on XBLA, not a full retail release.

Seems like a waste of your $20. The cover art is awesome, but everything else looks really weak. I'll happily pay $40 for the game though--looks amazing.

The graphics look well done. It's amazing what they are able to do with an 8 year old console.

I am so jelous I'm going to have to import it. Why US only big mistake in my opinion. I see the regular game at Game and Shopto at 30 quid anyway, thought it was going to be 15 pound...

@13 I'd gladly trade this collector edition that you covet so much for better ones like AC4, watch dogs and splinter cell. :(

This is actually a really cool edition, especially considering it's only $60.

That said, I'm not sold on this game yet. I never bought the first one on PS3 so I'll be praying for a demo of this one to help sell me on it.

I like the basic idea of the game and the co-op aspect, but I have a feeling it might become repetitive just robbing banks. I´ll give it a chance though and load the trial version.

Damn! I thought this was an XBL Arcade game. I guess I'll make my pre-order right away. Never played the first one but the aspect of it seemed fun and quite good with friends.

I have a PS3 and an Xbox360 - I picked up the 1st Payday for it I loved it.. It's engine is just like Left 4 Dead.. The 1st one was not just robbing banks it was a series of different heists (similar to the different chapters in L4D)- kind of crazy how this went from being announced as a arcade title ($??) to "box" version ($40)to having a collectors edition($60)

@21 YES!!! only you can play it!!! @23 I believe they use the source engine and awhile back they described it like it played for L4D. At one point in the video I believe there was a "defend the objective" mission. I will definitely be getting this game!!!

I have to decide and I need help please someone tell me which game to get between Saints Row IV and Payday 2 because I'm really at a wall here. I wanna get Saints Row IV because it looks okay and fun. Then Payday 2 comes with this Collectors edition for only $60 dollars and the game looks fantastic! Please help. D:

Does anyone else think the blue rubber gloves are ridiculous?

Those look pretty cheap, like they came from a box of 500 you pick up for a few dollars.

#22 It was going to be an arcade title however it was decided to expand the game somewhat and therefore they are releasing it on disc at a budget price AND it will be available as a digital download on release date.

It does look a pretty awesome game.On the Gametrailers app on the XBL dashboard there is a 15/20 min gameplay vid which shows a robbery in detail,with dev commentry and its pretty intense.My impression is that playing with 3 random people that aren't using mics could be frustrating but playing with 3 friends that are communicating could be really good fun.!I am tempted but not for the CE theres a cheaper edition on for £24.99 that includes a couple of cool items.

One of the things that made me interested in the game besides the subject matter and co-op is that it was only $40.

I'll pass on this...

The game looks awesome, Ill gladly pay $40 for it. But an extra $20 for a mask Ill never put on, gloves Ill never wear, a wallet Ill never use, and a soundtrack Ill never listen to. I guess its just me, but ill stick with the regular edition.
