Payday: The Heist gets mid-Oct release date and new trailer

Overkill's Sony-published crime FPS, Payday: The Heist, has recovered from its recent delay and is set to launch on PS3 next week. The download-only title, dated for a PSN launch on Oct 18, hasn't had a confirmed release date for its PC port, but is still on track to be available on both platforms by month's end. Here's a new clip previewing the game's Slaughterhouse level, which Sony promises is one of the game's toughest.

Payday: The Heist pits players against the law in a series of high-yield armed robbery scenarios, requiring team-play to carry out the mission objectives and get out alive and rich. Drawing clear inspiration from movies like Heat and The Dark Knight – not to mention Kane & Lynch's Fragile Alliance mode – the title is billed as AAA content at a download-play price. Sony and Overkill promise to support the title with DLC in the near future: find out more on the game's site in the final days before launch.

    This game looks interesting, but I'm concerned about it's actual quality, I mean when the enemies die I don't think they even have ragdoll physics.

    That might be a valid point if this were a $60 game. It's only $20 though ($18 on Steam). It might be worth the price of admission. No way I would buy it though, what with BF3 being 11 days away.
