Payday 3’s open beta kicks off on September 8th

It’s almost time for the return of Payday’s brand of action, as Deep Silver and Starbreeze prep an open-beta for PC and Xbox.

Time to loot and shoot

For the record, Payday 3 itself isn’t far off. The multiplayer action title arrives this month, on September 21st. This week’s beta test though, will give fans a chance to play a bit early, and also give some much needed feedback for the dev team, on whether the game needs a tweak or two.

To that end, this week’s is dubbed the Technical Open Beta, and actually doesn’t need a key or special access of any kind to partake in. Other than having an Xbox or a PC to access it, all fans can otherwise dig in, though those who’ve played the recent Closed Beta will find the same content presented again.

The PAYDAY 3 Technical Open Beta will offer: 

  • The original gang: Dallas, Hoxton, Chains, and WolfThe iconic clown-masked characters that made the PAYDAY franchise infamous are all playable, each with their own unique skillset.
  • Featured heist: “No Rest for the Wicked” will be the playable heist during the closed beta. Representative of classic PAYDAY heists, “No Rest for the Wicked” tasks the players with liberating a small bank of the cash cluttering up their vault. Heisters can sneak through the building, “liberating” the bank’s cash, or go in guns blazing to get the full-on adrenaline rush of a big city bank robbery.
  • All difficulties will be playable, level cap is Infamy Level 22 and Weapon Level Progression is maxed at 8.

Deep Silver press release
