Payday: Crime War Closed Beta To Start In Early December

Now, the game will feature the same old faces, at least for now. If you aren’t familiar with the heisters, here is a brief overview.

Wolf– “For his affinity for explosives and capability with hardware, we consider this one to be the Technician in the group. Further, a study by our profiling teams in Behavioral Analysis suggests that “Wolf” could be psychotic, as evidenced by his sudden shifts of mood.”

Dallas– “If this one isn’t actually the leader, he’s definitely the trusted lieutenant. Dallas is one of the original four that emerged in 2011. He appears to be the Mastermind of the gang, and his calm demeanor under fire suggests both a great experience and cunning intelligence.”

Chains– “We regard this one as the Enforcer in the gang. He tends to bring the biggest gun and a lot of ammo to feed it. Breaking down his movement, style, and technique, it is obvious that “Chains” is ex-military. It is likely he was special forces, and, based on overheard conversation, possibly even a former Navy SEAL.”

Hoxton– “Hoxton” was recently incarcerated at Hazelton Prison but was freed by the Payday gang while he was being taken to a parole hearing. We are sure he will be very difficult to apprehend again.”

We will also get to see some fan-favorite locations/contracts like the Art Gallery, Golden Grin Casino, Trainyard, Four Stores, Dockyard, Branch Bank, and the Bridge. Once released or if you get into the beta program, you will be able to play co-op and 4v4 multiplayer battles.

That’s it for now; stay tuned for more gaming-related content.
