I have a beta pass which runs up to when the game release (17 August I think) and can send to you on Steam. Please only ask for it if you are interested in the game and are going to use it, I'd rather that than someone play for 5 minutes and never touch again smile

Anyway if you want it, answer this question related to heists smile

I enjoyed the first game and would not mind trying the beta for this one. But, I don't know the answer to that question. :p

My son asked me if he could buy this game yesterday-I said ,' don't you fancy the new IL-2 game instead ' and sadly, he just looked at me blankly(age 13)...

Such is life

If anyone has a spare Beta, I'd love to try it. I played the first one and liked it, except I wasn't a fan of the limited maps and the near zero randomness. I'd like to see if they improved that in this one.

I am really liking this game. I hope the full version has a lot more missions though and the missions a lot more dynamic.

I'm addicted to it smile

I heard full game will be larger than Payday 1 so no worries there. Missed a great game with Tempus, Tigerwulf and me where we controlled the Jewelry store for ages with no alarms until someone outside saw us and then it went to sh*t real fast and we all got captured lol.

Spent an hour stealing the bank solo only to have the game crash while bagging the money. This is the second day in a row this has happened. It is very frustrating frown Just repeat after me, this is a beta... beta.... beta frown

This one does sound a lot more interesting... a little more "sim" too it, if you will. I had a good time with the first one (just playing by myself with bots most of the time), but it was just a mow-em-down shoot-em-up with heist-themed goals and levels that played out the same every time.

Step 1: Enter the bank/whatever.
Step 2: Kill every police officer in the city.
Step 3: Profit.

Just the possibility of being able to pull off a heist without firing a shot makes things interesting (which I understand is the case). Of course, I still want the ridiculous, over-the-top action when it's called for, but I want a little more 2nd-reel of "Heat" and a little less government building shoot-out from "The Matrix."

I dont think you can kill all the police in this one. They just keep coming and each consecutive wave is harder than the last and you have a limited amount of ammo / health.

You can indeed stealth most of the missions in the beta. I think about 2/3rds of them you can. One starts in a police ambush and you cant stealth that one or the following one (its a 2 day contract) and there is another meth lab mission that might be steathable but I doubt it. (at least not the first of the 3 days.)

What I like about this version is that there are multiple approaches to most missions. You can stealth them, smash and grab them or dig in for the long take. Each of the missions / maps have a bit of random to them so there are things that change every time you replay the missions. For instance the bank mission has random guard patrols, random camera placement, random security room placement, the security card can be in one of two places and even the vault has 2 possible locations. It makes for increased replayability.
