PSA: Payday 2 CrimeFest update goes live today

After roughly a week of teases, it's time to #FreeHoxton!


After collecting 1.5 million heisters on their Steam Community Group, Overkill Software got to work on Payday 2's biggest update so far. After 12 days of teases, the CrimeFest update is now ready to go live today.

The new CrimeFest update will feature a full-blown breakout mission, requiring teams to break Hoxton out from his hearing. The update will also include new masks, new perk systems, and a whole new playable character in the form of movie John Wick. Modders are also getting a boost with a new refined method of handling and organizing their Payday 2 mods.

There's still plenty more to come from Payday 2. Indie studio Lion Game Lion, comprised of several Overkill alumni, has officially come board to assist in development duties, meaning more heists are on the horizon.

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?
