PAYDAY: The Heist is an invigorating multiplayer-oriented shooter that proves that big things can reside in smaller digital packages.
It might be the closest thing to "Heat" in a video game, as players attempt to pull high-risk bank jobs, all the while gunning down the pesky authorities and even – during multiplayer – turning on their allies for a bigger personal payday. The cool part is that it's about to get even better.
Overkill game director Ulf Andersson has revealed that the team will be collaborating with Left 4 Dead designer, Valve:
"As perceptive gamers will have noticed, several hints have recently been dropped into PAYDAY The Heist, which has led to various rumors. We are excited to be able to confirm that an in-depth collaboration between OVERKILL and Valve is currently in production.
We are working on a very cool blend of PAYDAY and Left 4 Dead. I am sure it is so exciting that it will have some players check into the hospital before we are done."
Well now, let's not find ourselves in the hospital. Still, it sounds like a damn good idea; does this mean we're getting zombies in PAYDAY ? Zombies robbing banks is some sort of next-level insanity that might just work… And remember, the undead foes in L4D were anything but slow, so we don't have to go shuffling through the bank like a bunch of…um…zombies.
