It looks like 505 Games are set to release another version of PayDay 2 on consoles, this time it’ll come bundled with all of the game’s DLC launched up until the end of 2015.
According to a Google Cache of the game’s listing on 505 Games’ website, Payday 2 will be coming once again to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in the form of Payday 2: The Big Score. Unlike the Crimewave Edition which launched in July 2015, The Big Score will come with over $60 in DLC content, including 10 premium DLC and over 20 free DLCs which has launched for the game (up until the end of 2015, I might add).
The now-removed listing also had the following description:
“PAYDAY 2 CRIMEWAVE EDITION – THE BIG SCORE is the latest addition to the PAYDAY family and it’s packed with the most content in the history of the franchise. PD2:CE-THE BIG SCORE has all the DLC from PD2 that has been released up through the end of 2015. That’s right, all the heists, weapons, characters, masks and more… it’s coming to console. That includes 10 pieces of premium DLC – over $60 in DLC value – and 20 pieces of free DLC content too! it is the biggest score in the history of PAYDAY!
PAYDAY is an action-packed, four-player co-op shooter where you rob banks and get paid. The Crimewave Edition includes a rebuilt graphics engine for console, ramping up the visuals tenfold – see your master plans unfold in a hail of bullets like never before!
Up to four friends co-operate as the crew tackles jobs that become bigger, better and more rewarding. Along the way, earn more money and customize your character with new skillsets that change the way you play, while also building your own arsenal of guns and gear.
ROB BANKS AND SCORE!”
Following the release of the Crimewave Edition back in 2015, there was fan uproar due to the game being incredibly broken and actually getting into a game was close to impossible. Starbreeze Studios promised that the game would be fixed adding that at least for Xbox One, a new engine was being developed. Unfortunately those fixes and updates never came to fruition.
That is until now, apparently, though it’s going to likely cost you another £50 for the privilege.
The listing also adds:
“Rebuilt visuals bring heisting into 1080p resolution on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. See every bank note fly and feel every bullet blast past your head in full HD.”
Again, something the previous game was lacking.
While 505 Games nor Starbreeze Studios have yet to officially announce and confirm the above details, there’s a high chance that an announcement is coming pretty soon. Though, I’m not sure those who purchased the original console edition of the game are going to be too pleased.
It’s worth mentioning that the cached site mentions nothing about a price or release date, so there is every possibility that this content could come to existing owners of the game as part of an update. Here’s hoping, eh?
