Fans of heist games should be hyped following the leak of an artwork of PAYDAY 3, the next installment of the famous franchise developed by Starbreeze Studios.
An imminent announcement for the return of the benchmark for heist games?
The artwork that leaked via data from the Epic Games store features four masked and armed to the teeth characters in full robbery. The fine detailing of the artwork suggests painstaking attention to graphics and lighting, as well as the specialized gear and iconic goggles that the Payday series is famous for.
Although the authenticity of the artwork has not been confirmed by Starbreeze Studios, fans of the franchise can’t help but speculate about what features and potential improvements PAYDAY 3 could bring to the series. The visual highlights a dark and tense atmosphere, characteristic of previous games in the franchise, hinting at thrilling heist scenarios and complex missions.
The PAYDAY franchise has earned a solid reputation for its cooperative gameplay, allowing players to plan and execute elaborate heists as a team. The previous opuses have met with great success, offering a particularly immersive experience.
Starbreeze Studios confirmed the development of PAYDAY 3 in 2016, and since then expectations have only grown. The studio is committed to evolving the series, introducing new game mechanics, improved graphics, and an even more immersive co-op experience. The latest news is that the game is expected to unveil its gameplay this summer, and we therefore imagine that it will be part of one of the big events expected in the coming days.
As a reminder, PAYDAY 3 is developed under the Unreal Engine by the Starbreeze studio, and is expected on consoles and PC this year. We can’t wait to find out more about this coop FPS which will succeed the Payday 2 game released in 2015. See you at the Xbox Showcase this Sunday?
