Those looking forward to SOE’s upcoming title, PAYDAY: The Heist, can mark their calenders as it was announced today that the PSN version will be available on October 18th. PAYDAY: The Heist is a squad-based, first person shooter title that lands players in the role of a seasoned career criminal on the prowl for the next “big score.” For those who haven’t heard about this title, here are a few details sure to pique your interest.

In this online co-op title, FPS fans get tested on their quick thinking and ability to work together as they pull off one of six heists. Teamwork and a steady trigger finger are key to surviving the ever-growing police force who will adapt to the situation and keeping the hostages in check as you make your way through security measures.

  • Six High-Intensity Heists: Whether you’re blowing the roof off a building to extract a safe via helicopter or emptying the vault at the First World Bank, these action-packed heists will have players on edge and always checking their six.
  • Interactive Co-op Gameplay: Whether AI or live, your crew of four must operate as one to bring in the “big score.” Sharing extra ammo and med kits, helping regenerate wounded partners, guarding key positions, taking civilian hostages or cracking through various security measures – it’s all for one and one for all.
  • Endless Replayability: Dynamic environments, adaptive enemy behavior, shifting entry points, FBI agents repelling through skylights on ropes, SWAT teams crashing through the windows and special units crawling through the ventilation shafts makes each play-through of every heist a unique fight.
  • Massive Character Progression Tree: Players choose a specialty — assault, sharpshooter or support — to gain weapons and equipment that fit their preferred form of violence. Unlock trip mines, silenced pistols, machine guns and much, much more.
  • Shout-Out Button: Players need to be vocal and shout commands and directions to the co-op crew, as well as hostages and the police if they want to survive to spend their cut of the take.
  • Hostage Trading: Hostages can be used as lifelines. If anyone in the crew is taken into custody, trade hostages to get crewmembers back and increase the odds of completing your objectives.
  • PlayStation┬«3 system or PC*: For keyboard and mouse marksman, as well as handheld controller snipers, PAYDAY is the uber-FPS for a high intensity shooter fix. *PC release date to be announced.
  • More DLC: Additional heists, weapons and equipment means PAYDAY — a digitally distributed AAA quality title for less than half the price of a retail game — is total OVERKILL.

Priced at $19.99, this looks to be a great game for those wanting to do more than play the law-abiding citizen. Currently the dates for a European release and the PC release have yet to be announced. But stick with us and we’ll keep you updated.
