505 Games and Overkill have announced that the console version of PAYDAY 2 will finally be receiving some DLC. While it isn’t anything close to what is available on, it is nice to see that they haven’t totally forgotten the console players.
The following DLC packs will be making there way to PS3 sometime soon:
The Armored Transport DLC
The Armored Transport DLC lets players do every heister’s dream — robbing armored transports full of valuables — right in the middle of Washington D.C. If they’re lucky, players can hit it big with a classic train robbery.
Up to four friends co-operate on the heists, and as the crew progresses they have a chance to unlock an even more rewarding job — a classic train robbery. New weapons, weapon modifications, masks, patterns and materials have been added to let players continue to build and customize their own guns and gear.
Gage Weapon Pack #1
Frag Grenades make their first entry into the PAYDAY series and are bound to spice things up. With the new Grenade Case asset, players can share grenades with each other during the heists. Three new weapons are added and players can now toggle between Single and Auto-fire with all full auto weapons. Four new animal masks have been added, as well as new patterns and materials.
Gage Weapon Pack #2
With Cloakers putting fear in the hearts of every criminal, Gage has the perfect antidote as he brings back the Light Machine Gun and introduces melee combat weapons to counter them in this new weapon pack. With the Light Machine Guns, players can provide cover for each other by unleashing devastating attacks.
Three Light Machine Guns and four Knives are added to the player’s arsenal. Four new masks from Gage’s collection have been added, as well as new patterns and materials.
It should be noted they they are still charging for these DLC packs and will be offering a bundled version at a discount. The real question is, does anyone on console even play this game anymore? With lack-luster support I wouldn’t be surprised if the active player pool has dried up. Regardless I will be checking these out once they finally drop, I can’t wait to fight off some Cloakers finally.
