Set in New York City, Payday 3 is a high-octane first person co-op shooter game that lets players live out the fantasy of being a world-class career criminal and master the art of heisting.

Step out of retirement back into the life of crime in the shoes of the Payday Gang, the envy of their peers and the nightmare of law-enforcement wherever they go. Several years after the crew’s reign of terror over Washington DC has ended, they assemble once again to deal with the threat that roused them out of early retirement.

Payday 3 takes players to the city of unlimited possibilities - New York City.

The Payday Gang, consisting of Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf and Chains return from retirement, and find themselves in the Big Apple after an unknown threat appears, shattering the illusion of peacefully living on the “right” side of the law. As they say, “Leopards can’t change their spots”, and thanks to years of experience and a mysterious new player in the criminal underworld, they quickly get their hands on the first lucrative heists and leave their explosive calling card with the city's security and police forces.

Players will discover new ways to pull off the perfect heist thanks to new skills, gadgets and weapons while the Payday 3 storyline will continuously expand with new content and challenges.

After much anticipation and excitement, Publisher Deep Silver and developer Starbreeze are excited to announce that Payday 3 is launching into Early Access ahead of the official launch on Thursday, Sept. 21.
