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.
