'Payday 2' (ALL) Available For Pre-Order On Nintendo Switch, Rolls Out New Heister

by Rainier on Feb. 6, 2018 @ 9:24 a.m. PST

Payday 2 is the next installment in the bank robbery shooter adding new features such as a skill and progression system, as well as four classes/professions, each giving you unique abilities.

Payday 2 is an action-packed, four-player co-op shooter that lets players don the masks of the original Payday crew - Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf and Chains - as they descend on Washington D.C. for an epic crime spree.

Up to four friends co-operate on each heist, and as the crew progresses the heists gets bigger, better and more rewarding. Along with earning more money and becoming an infamous criminal comes new customization that lets players build and alter their guns and gear.

Payday 2 for Nintendo Switch is now available for digital pre-order on the Nintendo Switch eShop and at selected retailers for $49,99/€49,99. 

To celebrate the launch of Payday 2 on the Nintendo Switch we’re also releasing our brand-new heister Joy. She’s a Japanese computer wiz living in the United States that comes with her own hacker perks and weapons, but maybe most importantly she has her own custom LED light-based mask, that can change her appearance.

Payday 2 comes with full touch screen menu support, and a newly developed rumble feature that responds as you, for example, fire weapons or throw grenades. Payday 2 Switch also comes with a local multiplayer mode to the CRIME.NET - called CRIME.NET Local Play. This will make you able to set up a local game and invite friends that share the same local network 

Key Features:

  • Rob Banks, Get Paid – Players must choose their crew carefully, because when the job goes down they will need the right mix of skills on their side.
  • CRIME.NET – The dynamic contract database CRIME.NET lets players pick and choose from available jobs by connecting with local Contractors - all with their own agenda and best interests in mind.
  • Dynamic Scenarios – No heist ever plays out the same way twice, as heists comes with random geometry and events.
  • Choose Your Skills – As players progress they can invest in any of five special Skill Trees: Mastermind, Enforcer, Ghost, Technician and Fugitive. Each features a deep customization tree of associated skills and equipment to master.
  • More Masks than Ever – PAYDAY 2 features a completely new mask system, giving players the ability to craft their own unique mask together with a pattern and a color.
  • Weapons and Modifications – A huge arsenal for the serious heister, covering everything from sniper to assault rifles. You can modify your weapon with optics, suppressors, fore grips, reticles, barrels, frames, stocks and lots more.
  • Play It Your Way – Each job allows for multiple approaches, such as slow and stealthy ambushes, to running in guns blazing.

Already available on PS4, Xbox One and PC, Payday 2 will be available on Nintendo Switch starting February 23rd in Europe/ Australia and February 27th in North/South America, both digitally and through physical distribution on cartridge by 505 Games.
