Some six weeks after its chaotic launch, cooperative heist game PAYDAY 3 has gotten its first patch. It weighs in around 2GB and includes more than 200 fixes, tweaks, quality-of-life improvements, and quashed bugs.
Whether it will be enough to stem the game's bleeding player count remains to be seen, but it's certainly a step in the right direction. At least on Steam, where such metrics are painfully public, more than ten times as many people are currently playing PAYDAY 2 in comparison to PAYDAY 3.
Alongside the full patch notes, Developer Starbreeze, considering its recent track record, made a bold proclamation, stating:
"Hello, heisters! After some instability, we’re finally up and running as things should be! Heisters heisting, civilians screaming, and cops floundering! We’ve got a lot more cooking; keep letting us know when you find bugs, and send us your suggestions!"
