Sony Online Entertainment announced that PAYDAY: The Heist, will be slightly delayed and will be made available for digital download for the PSN and PC systems later this month for $19.99 USD. According to the press release, this delay is a move to ensure players and fans of our promise and vision to produce high-caliber games that deliver the best quality game experience.
Players who pre-ordered PAYDAY: The Heist will receive the game at launch, and those who purchased the four other PSN titles as part of the PlayStation Network PLAY program will also be awarded PAYDAY: The Heist when it launches later this month, according to the terms of that program.
PAYDAY: The Heist is a squad-based, first-person shooter that allows players to take on the role of a hardened career criminal and engage in a number of high-risk heists. Players will rob banks, steal from drug dealers, pocket priceless diamonds, take hostages and hijack cars in a never-ending pursuit for criminal glory. To be successful in any true heist scenario, teamwork is essential to provide crewmembers with a sense of security and protection, and ultimately take home the loot.
