Payday 2 cracks the safe with Xbox 360 demo

505 Games and Overkill are releasing an Xbox 360 demo for Payday 2, giving players a chance to try out each of the game's classes until level 10.


If over 1.5 million sales and the promise of a year's worth of DLC aren't enough to sell you on Payday 2, 505 Games and Overkill are releasing a demo on Xbox 360, allowing players to briefly step into the game's online world.

The Payday 2 demo will grant players access to all four character classes and allow them to run through them up to level 10. While the main game is billed as a co-op heist game for up to four players, the demo will have players practice heists in a solo capacity, giving them a chance to try out each of the four individual character classes. A date has not yet been set for a PS3 demo, though Overkill notes that it's currently in the works.

The game's Lootbag DLC (previously a pre-order bonus only) will also be made available today. It includes red dot sight for all rifles and shotguns, a skull mask, a black and red mask, and a mask that reads "I Love OVERKILL!" That last one is just in case you want anyone to know that you really love Overkill. It'll also give you some in-game cash, which is probably the easiest money you'll make in the game. The add-on content will be available for an additional $4.99 on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
