PAYDAY 2: Halloween Update! The Prison Nightmare is live!

Heisters!

Your Nightmare Is Nigh

Hello weary heisters. Come in, rest for a while, close your eyes. Sleeeeep. When you wake up, don’t be scared, if you can.

The Halloween Heist Is Live!

The Necrocloaker is back and he is so very happy. His favorite pets, you, are stuck in his prison and forced to play at his game.

Spin the wheel, get your fortune or get out. But beware, this prison is where many a heister has met their doom, where dreams are crushed and lives squandered. Survive, brave heister. Don’t die.

Developer Stream Tomorrow!

Tomorrow guys from our OVERKILL crew will host a stream and play the Halloween heist.

Check it out here!

Together with the heist we’re also updating the game with a bunch of bug fixes. Check out the changelog below!

Best,
OVERKILL_Joakim and OVERKILL_Hampus

Michelle-Louise Janion
I tend to favour the puzzle, RPG, action-adventure and strategy genres. My particular favourites over the years have been Final Fantasy IX, Metal Gear Solid, Civilisation V and The Last of Us. I'm also a sucker for a series: Darksiders, Assassin's Creed, Tomb Raider etc. I am a bit of a lone gamer as I tend to steer clear of PvP, and only play multiplayer with close friends.
