How SOE's PAYDAY The Heist Stole Christmas

Sony Online Entertainment's (SOE) PAYDAY The Heist is back and ready to take fans on a new crime spree - all while spreading some holiday cheer!

In various levels of the multiplayer mode, players must find a wrapped present in order to gain the latest achievement. Once the present is discovered, they will be given the ultimate Santa mask - which will equip them with a new identity specifically for the holiday season, as well as a chance to win a gift from Steam!

Additionally, SOE and the OVERKILL Software team have been hard at work to add patches to the game, giving you the gift of:

  • Player Drop-in: Join ongoing games and continue stealing those precious gems and dollars without  being locked out 
  • Improved Combat: Strategize, as fighting and acting have been heavily improved for enemies! The team and enemies now pick better cover and firing positions, and use more intelligent firing lanes for suppression and sniping
  • New Masks: Choose one of the four all-new masks that have been added in celebration of the recently released military shooters
  • Additional Updates: Improved AI, smoother combat, grouping and aim, and more 

Go grab your masks, your guns and your holiday spirit and go rob some banks (virtually of course)!
