  • News PAYDAY 3 Developer Explains Why First PS5 Patch is Still MIA

    The perfect crime

    PAYDAY 3 has had a rough launch, and communication with the community (or lack thereof) has only exacerbated matters further.

    Undercover

    A heist is easiest when you get in and out without alerting anyone’s attention, and this assault on a Brooklyn art gallery shows PAYDAY 3’s best laid plans being executed flawlessly.

About The Game

PAYDAY 3 is the much anticipated sequel to one of the most popular co-op shooters ever. Since its release, PAYDAY-players have been reveling in the thrill of a perfectly planned and executed heist. That’s what makes PAYDAY a high-octane, co-op FPS experience without equal.

Step out of retirement back into the life of crime in the shoes of the Payday Gang, the envy of their peers and the nightmare of law-enforcement wherever they go. Several years after the crew’s reign of terror over Washington DC has ended, they assemble once again to deal with the threat that roused them out of early retirement.
