As a special Christmas present, Overkill Software have added a free heist to Payday 2 – the Charlie Santa Heist.
This heist has players robbing the GO Bank, apparently based on a map from Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. There’s also a lovely little gift of a high-powered scope, nine new achievements, and – if you join the official Payday 2 group on Steam – a Santa mask. Not bad for an early Christmas present.
There’s a bizarrely harrowing trailer for the heist below, which takes the form of camera footage from various sources overlaid with a 911 call reporting the heist. Considering how ludicrously over-the-top most Payday 2 videos are, this is weirdly subdued and realistic, for the most part.
