The current-gen re-release of Payday 2 has finally got a release date, will have you running around, robbing banks in June, sadly there’s no Scooby snacks

Payday 2: Crimewave Edition will be bringing co-operative heist-based combat to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 digitally on June 16, revealed publisher 505 Games. The Crimewave Edition will bring the game which launched in 2013 to current-generation consoles along with all of the currently released DLC.

In addition to all of the current DLC players will also be able to play as Clover, the game’s first female character. It also packs in more weapons like shotguns, sniper rifles, and grenades to help players execute the perfect heist. It’ll also include a new perk system, an addition skill-tree for stealth, and a pre-planning stage for players to iron out the final details.

What’s more, those who pre-order the game will be able to grab the following goodies at launch:

  • Red dot weapon sight modification available for use on all rifle weapons
  • Exclusive Skull mask
  • PlayStation 4 or Xbox One exclusive mask
  • Unique mask pattern titled “I LOVE OVERKILL”
  • Unique color pattern, only available with this unlock
  • Bundle of in-game cash

I never got around to playing Payday 2 for Xbox 360, and the PC version included so much more content anyway, so I’m glad it’ll all be coming bundled in the Crimewave Edition
