Payday 3 teams up with Ice-T for a special heist in the game

Ice-T made a special appearance during Gamescom Opening Night Live 2023 to share that he collaborated with Starbreeze Studioson a special mission.


Payday 3 has been a much-anticipated co-op shooter, and it looks like even celebrities are getting involved in the fun. During Gamescom Opening Night Live 2023, musician and actor Ice-T made an appearance to reveal that not only was he a fan of the Payday series, but he got together with Starbreeze Studios to create a special heist presented by the celebrity himself. We’ll be able to check out the special Ice-T mission when Payday 3 launches.

Ice-T appeared to share his content in Payday 3 during the events of the Opening Night Live 2023 presentation on August 22, 2023. Presented by Ice-T himself, this mission takes players to a shipping yard where they must sneak in, steal components, and get them to an escape vehicle. Guards aren’t your only obstacle on the way to getting in, getting the goods, and getting out. The components are also temperature-controlled and will begin to degrade the moment you get them out into the open. That means you’re also on the clock to rush them to the escape before they lose all value. You can see the trailer in action below.

Payday 3 has been shaping up to be a solid new entry in the franchise. Players have already had chances to try what’s in store for them with the PC and Xbox closed betas that went on earlier this month. Getting Ice-T involved is also a good way to rep the game as he has proven time and time again to be an avid gamer, as we at Shacknews know full-well. The mission presented by him seems like it will be another solid challenge for teams to overcome.

With Payday 3 currently set for a September 2023 release, it won’t be long before the game finally arrives. Stay tuned for any further news and updates leading up to the game’s launch.
