If by any chance liked the last Payday game in the series, Overkill Software revealed some pretty good news in their latest press release. Apparently, the next Payday title “may” let players control the police in a new versus mode.
“The one thing, without going into too much detail, is we made a lot of decisions on this game that were ambitious and risky, and one of the reasons that we were able to get it out on time and make it generally a good game is that we didn’t entertain a lot of stuff that was outside of our core focus, and the core focus is not versus,” director David Goldfarb said
“The core focus is co-op.” he added.
“When you make a versus game it puts you in a different place, and then your attention is kind of split,” Goldfarb said. “And having been on the Battlefield side of things, and we’re doing [single player] and co-op, and multiplayer and they all kind of suffer in their own ways.
“It was good that we kept our focus and enabled us to finish this game,” he added. “Now I’m not going say we would never consider it, but that’s what we did on this one.”
I sure hope that they will be adding a mode like this in the next game, as Payday 2 was not such a good game in my opinion. There’s a lot of work to be done because the game shows initiative. So let’s hope they will start working hard on the next Payday.
