Payday 2 first look - it's Left 4 Dead with cops, not zombie

Take those clowns downtown

There's no such thing as a heist movie where everything goes according to plan. The whole point is to watch the plan fall apart, and cheer on the heroic thieves as they improvise an even more ingenious escape. In Payday 2, there's nothing stopping you from pulling off that perfectly discreet heist. But it's the moments when your world collapses around you that create stories.... read more

Payday 2 first look - it's Left 4 Dead with cops, not zombie

looks interesting, a few things though: does it have single player, character customisation or other game modes?
(you know, things that would improve its lifespan)

I bet this is going to be an 18. Darn it, it was the only game that I was looking forward to, even better than Blacklist.

It has single-player but multi-player is the same its just with friends or random guys online instead of AI's
There is Character Customization (probably)
There maybe other game modes but it hasn't been confirmed
hope this answered your question :D

looks interesting, to play a game from a criminals point of view instead of the heroes. It would also be nice to play with a group of friends and just rob a bank or jewelry store together. Think I might have to get the Payday 2

No date confirmed yet, early reports are only as specific as saying "Summer"

I'll admit, I really look forward to leaning more about the customisaion options for both flavour and abilities. However, I don't really see what's so "Left 4 Dead" about it.

It's the first I've heard of this, sounds pretty good. As long as the AI aren't idiots (one can dream) when playing alone.
Being good at stuff is overrated. Probably.

This certainly sounds interesting. L4D has single player but it's not very fun. If this is like L4D but with cops (which I have an image in my mind of a sea of bloodthirsty cops pouring down a corridor the instant a car alarm goes off) then it probably isn't very fun in single player either, simply because it'll be relatively short and the partner AI will be one step below down syndrome level. Still I think I'll keep an eye on it.

I tried playing the first Payday on PS3, but the controls were crap. The game felt unnecessarily clunky and put me off from playing it. Hopefully that issue is resolved in the sequel.
