Payday 2 coming to PC and consoles in August

Clear some space in your creepy mask collection, because Payday 2 is coming in August. The co-op heist shooter from Overkill Software will hit PC via Steam, and will--unlike its predecessor--be available both digitally and in retail on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Payday 2 looks like a promising sequel, refining and expanding on the original's occasionally rough, but intriguing, heists. If we can zip-tie civilians for hostage exchanges and unlock scads of bizarre masks, we'll be happy.

Check out our developer demo to see Payday 2 in action with commentary from Game Director David Goldfarb.
