SteamDB is a bit like a drug for some of us waiting on games, and today my usual check-in resulted in finding PAYDAY 2 with some nice looking Linux additions.

See this one today:
QuoteChanged App Config
launch/2/config/osarch: 64
launch/2/config/oslist: linux
launch/2/executable: payday2_release
launch/2/type: none


According to their Steam page the Linux release is still planned for 2016. We will pick it up of course, so we can give you our thoughts on it.

The usual applies though, don't bloody buy it until the Linux version is released.

About the game (Official)
PAYDAY 2 is an action-packed, four-player co-op shooter that once again lets gamers don the masks of the original PAYDAY crew - Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf and Chains - as they descend on Washington DC for an epic crime spree.

The new CRIMENET network offers a huge range of dynamic contracts, and players are free to choose anything from small-time convenience store hits or kidnappings, to big league cyber-crime or emptying out major bank vaults for that epic PAYDAY. While in DC, why not participate in the local community, and run a few political errands?

Up to four friends co-operate on the hits, and as the crew progresses the jobs become bigger, better and more rewarding. Along with earning more money and becoming a legendary criminal comes a new character customization and crafting system that lets crews build and customize their own guns and gear.

I've also seen a lot of movement on Saints Row 2, 3, and 4 on SteamDB history

The developers have gone too far with their DLC and microtransaction politics. I used to love PayDay (2), but I wouldn't buy a third PayDay nowadays.

Nice! It seems that they are quite far already:
Quotelaunch/2/executable: payday2_release
I remember that it was first due to this fall and then delayed till Q1/16, maybe the have sped up and dealt with their porting problems. Would be nice to steal some christmas candy

Payday 2 was the reason I originally kept a windows partition. I had about 800 hours on my old Xbox 360 version and over 1,000 hours on the PC version. I'm hoping the Linux save files aren't compatible with the PC files. It will give me a good reason to start over from scratch.

You mean the Windows version, right? I'm assuming you're still using your PC to run Linux.

Yes. When we're dealing with publishers promising games coming to "PC" or "PC platforms" and they sometimes mean Windows-only, sometimes mean Windows+Mac and sometimes mean Windows+SteamOS/Linux then we need to help move away from using this ambiguous term, that really only means IBM-compatible/PC hardware. Maybe we can't fix the language publishers use right now, but we should at least strive to not help propagate the misnomer.

looking forward to putting a few hours in, picked it up very cheap on the SteamOS sale many moons ago, even with the microtransactions im sure there is enough content there as standard to get a good 6hrs out of it.

From what I read, this game has been screwed up, so I'm sadly not looking forward to it anymore.
