Any self-respecting criminal needs a safehouse that reflects their sense of style and personality. That’s why Payday 2 is giving would be bank robbers their very own fully customizable safehouse.

In a new trailer released today, Payday 2 game director David Goldfarb talks about the importance of the safehouse to the overall game experience. The safehouse’s primary function is to serve as a training ground for new and old players alike as they can try out all the tools and weapons found in the main game without the pressure of being on an actual heist.

Perhaps more importantly though, the safehouse also serves as a manifestation of the player’s personality. They can use the money stolen during heists to upgrade the safehouse with various items to make it uniquely theirs. The safehouse will also store all the money that you’ve stolen thus far in a realistic way. I would hope they let you swim in it Scrooge McDuck-style, but that might be asking for too much.

Payday 2 launches on August 13 for the PS3 and Xbox 360. It launches August 27 for the PC on Steam.

    why is it that all of these articles seem to get something as simple as the release date wrong? the 27th? are you kidding? it was confirmed to be the 13th if anything the 16th would be a more arguable push back date but not the 27th

      I was going off of the PC release date. It seems that the game does indeed launch on August 13 for Xbox 360 and PS3. The story’s been changed to reflect that.

    Hey there ???,

    I know this might seem odd, but I spent a lot of time this weekend playing Payday 2, and the release date coincides with what the developer has published on Steam, had you taken the time to check that before berating the author.

    So, no, Zach isn’t kidding, he’s using the information he has from a trusted source over someone angry with him over the internet.

      No and not for the ps4 either. I read this from the overkill developers and they said “we have no intrest in releasing this game for the next gen consoles”.
