Following its much-anticipated announcement at the Xbox Game Showcase, the release date for Payday 3 has now been confirmed as September 21. Plaion’s Prime Matter label will publish this latest installment from Starbreeze Studios and it will be available for PC, Xbox, and PlayStation consoles.
Payday 3 transports players to contemporary New York, where they will join the usual gang, Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf, and Chains, emerging from retirement. Yet this isn’t the same world they left behind. The game will immerse players in a society further evolved into the digital age, presenting an intriguing blend of traditional and modern elements.
Starbreeze Studios has hinted at the inclusion of software giants, cryptocurrencies, and the Dark Web, marking a significant shift in the theme and gameplay dynamics. The developers promise these new aspects will be reflected in the updated gadgetry that the gang uses, making for a fresh yet familiar experience for returning players. Mass surveillance will also be a factor, creating a more challenging and nuanced game environment where every decision could have far-reaching consequences.
