PAYDAY 2 looks like it's getting closer to a SteamOS & Linux version

Are you ready to rob some banks? PAYDAY 2 is showing signs that it's getting closer to a Linux release.

From SteamDB, It looks like Linux is now going through "QA" which usually means quality assurance:

branches/linux_qa/buildid: 1029140
branches/linux_qa/description:
branches/linux_qa/pwdrequired: 1

This could mean it will come tonight, tomorrow, in a week or later. It's a good healthy sign that the developers are working on it regularly.

It has suffered a bit of review-bombing over the introduction of micro-transactions in CS:GO style drops, and buying drills to open them with. They took on feedback and added in drills as a drop too (from what I read), but it hasn't helped the masses of negative reviews. It still has regularly over 10,000 players online, so I would say the game is still pretty healthy.

About the game
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.

It's about time! It was announced over a year ago... And yet, it's still not actually out, so we could be waiting a lot longer yet.

Good to see another heavyweight title coming to Linux. The more, the merrier.

Given that earlier the developers vehemently promised that they would never implement microtransactions, I'd say the backlash is warranted.

Almir needs to be slapped with an oversized piece of toast. I wouldn't waste money on this.

This is the most important thing. Even in a period of player controversy, at least Payday 2 a name people recognize.
