The newest Goat Simulator DLC blends together the crazy open world chaos game with Overkill's heist game. Players will control a goat crew to ransack a giant casino called Mahatma Gambling.

There are also some other unlockables available throughout the course of the downloadable campaign.

The Goat Simulator: Payday DLC is available now on Steam with a trailer available below.

But wait? What about Payday 2? Well, Payday 2 is also getting some Goat Simulator-related content in the form of the the Payday 2: Goat Simulator Heist. This will be a special two-day heist, in which the Payday crew heads over to hijack a cocaine truck only to find a different kind of cargo. The second day will see the crew attempting to extract this new cargo, assuming they can keep it all under control. This new DLC will include some new weapons, new songs, and new Goat Simulator-themed masks.

The Payday 2: Goat Simulator Heist is also available now on Steam. To see just how this crossover is going to work, check out the heist page and watch the trailer below.

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.
