DLcentral.co.uk finds out: Five packs planned, updates will include free content
Developer Overkill Software has pledged its on-going support for the recently released mask-wearing money-grabber, Payday 2. The studio’s Game Director, David Goldfarb, told Joystiq there are “Five DLCs planned together with [publisher] 505 Games for the coming year,” and that updates would be a mix of paid and free content.
One possible update for Payday 2 could be the addition of a non-male crew member, with Goldfarb telling OXM in an interview that “one of the first things I have on my list, is to make sure we get a female character. I’m hoping – I don’t know if we’ll get it as our first DLC, because we’d have to redo all the animations so it doesn’t look like a dude walking around with a female body… But I’d like to do that.”
The previous game, Payday: The Heist, received a couple of DLC packs, and offered new weapons and gear, an additional skill tree, player upgrades, and a selection of new heists, one of which was a special Left 4 Dead crossover mission.
Payday 2 is available now for the PlayStation 3 via PSN, and an Xbox 360 release through the Xbox Live Games on Demand service is currently scheduled for next Friday, 23 August.
