Payday 2: Crimewave Edition Is Coming To Xbox One In June
PAYDAY 2: Crimewave Edition will arrive on Xbox One and PS4 In June 2015, 505 Games has revealed.
It was first announced way back in June 2014 that the highly lauded co-op heist shooter would be coming to next-gen consoles, but it’s been so many month since we’d heard any fresh news that we had begun to suspect it had been silently cancelled.
Thankfully, that isn’t the case. Crimewave Edition will not only bring “the ultimate hesit experience” to Xbox One with updated graphics, but it will also include over a year’s worth of premium DLC and free updates in the box at launch.
“The continuation of the PAYDAY-saga on Xbox One and Playstation 4 is going to be awesome. With improved frame rate, greater looking textures, 1080p resolution and more than a year worth of updates included in the game at launch, robbing banks together has never looked as sweet.” Said Bo Andersson Klint, CEO of Starbreeze AB. “Getting PAYDAY into the hands of as many gamers as possible has always been one of our mantras, hopefully our initial offer will make it easier than ever for new and old heisters alike to enjoy PAYDAY 2 ”.
The updates include fan favourite The Big Bank Heist – which adds the new contact the Dentist, voiced by actor Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) as well as a Preplanning feature that lets you plan out your heist beforehand – and “Clover,” the first female heister.
It’ll be interesting to see how Payday 2: Crimewave Edition performs on Xbox One, considering it’s out a few months after both GTA: Online’s highly anticipated Heist mode and Battlefield Hardline.
