As announced earlier this month, Payday 2 is going retail this August. And going retail of course means pre-order incentives are soon to follow.
505 Games and Overkill are now offering the Lootbag DLC pack as a pre-order bonus wherever retail copies of the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions are sold. The Lootbag comes stuffed with extra cash, gun mods and masks, including: military red dot weapon sight available for use on all rifles and shotguns; bundle of in-game cash; skull mask; black and red mask; and a mask with “I Love OVERKILL!” written on it.
PC players have the same pre-purchase Lootbag offer available through Steam in addition to an exclusive Career Criminal Edition, which includes the Lootbag DLC along with the following digital extras: Payday 2 original soundtrack; two invites to the pre-release beta test; discounts on all purchases from the Crime.net marketplace (this is an in-game store using in-game currency, not micro-transactions for real cash); Bain’s Guide To The Criminal Underworld, a digital guide on heisting; and a set of printable heist blueprints.
Pricing for Payday 2‘s retail release on PS3 and Xbox 360 is set at $39.99. On Steam the standard PC version is available at a pre-purchase rate of $29.99, while the Career Criminal Edition will steal another twenty bucks from you at $49.99.
No word yet about whether or not any similar DLC offers will be available for the digital PlayStation Network release.
