Payday 2 issuing open beta for money/XP changes

Overkill Software is working to address one of Payday 2's most common criticisms.


Payday 2 has largely been well-received by people that love robbing banks with their friends. However, as our interview with Overkill Software has indicated, there is a sector of players that are unsatisfied with the XP and reward allocation system. The developers are now ready to address this with a new open beta.

The 134mb open beta was detailed on Steam earlier today. The beta will focus on network stability, while also looking to try out a refined money/XP allocation system. Overkill will be taking player feedback before issuing a larger update to the public.

For more on the update, check out the game's Steam announcements page.

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?
