Payday 2 is set for a huge expansion with the Armored Transport DLC. The pack is already out on Steam, and though no date has been set yet, the press release confirms that it is coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 at some point in the near future.
Armored Transport DLC sees original Payday crew, and American Gladiator sound-a-likes – Hoxton, Dallas, Wolf and Chain – return to the streets of Washington D.C. to crack open a load of high-security vehicles. The culmination of your efforts will lead to a big job too – a train robbery.
Here’s a breakdown of everything on offer in Armored Transport…
- News Heists Spread Over Six Locations – Players now have two new heists that take place over six different locations. Gamers hit the armored transports downtown, in parks, underpasses, crossroads and in the harbor area of D.C. If the player is lucky, the robberies will lead to an even bigger reward –a train robbery to secure a valuable military prototype.
- Three New Weapons Of Choice – Players can now enjoy three new weapons of mass heisting. For the stealth artist we have the charming Gruber Kurz pistol, Tanks will enjoy the agile Commando 553 Assault rifle and only a lunatic could love the classic Swedish K SMG. Together with over a dozen new weapon modifications, everyone will have something to play with.
- Four New Masks, Patterns and Materials – Four new masks have been added to the game, themed around four very famous American presidents. Combined with the all-new American themed patterns and materials, players will be able to cook up some pretty awesome looking mask designs. Bodhi would be proud.
- New Achievements, Free Community Mask and More – There are a dozen new achievements players to take care of. Those that join the Official PAYDAY 2 group on Steam will also receive another bonus item in the shape of a new hockey mask – inspired from one of the best heist flicks of all time. For those that work hard while robbing the armored transports, a curious Easter egg can be found.
Obviously, we’re not sure whether that last bullet-point will make it onto consoles as it’s specifically for the Payday 2 group on Steam, but we’d back our stolen goods on a similar bonus being offered.
And if reading the words about the new stuff hasn’t whet your appetite enough, here’s a teaser trailer and a stack of new screens. We’ll be back soon with news on when the Armored Transport DLC will hit PS3 and Xbox 360.
