It's time round up the gang once again as the release date for Payday 3 approaches. Multiplayer has always been the main focus of the Payday franchise, but what modes can we expect to find in the latest installment?
Payday 3's trailer showed off a lot of frenetic gameplay as you and your band of heisters rob a bank. You can experience this gameplay yourself on several different platforms including the PlayStation 4.
So far it looks like Payday 3 will be another great installment to the series, so let's take a look at how you will be able to experience the game.
Will Payday 3 have co-op multiplayer?
Yes, Payday 3 will definitely have co-op multiplayer.
If there's one thing that is ingrained into Payday's DNA, it's the inclusion of a cooperative mode. The core mechanics of every Payday game so far is built around the premise of working together with other players.
You can squad up with up to 4 players in Payday 3, just like in previous installments. Local co-op won't be an option though, so make sure your internet connection is nice and stable.
Will Payday 3 have a competitive mode?
No, Payday 3 will not have a competitive mode.
Fans of the series have toyed with the idea of a competitive mode for a while now. One group of players would play as the robbers while the opposing group will be on the side of the law.
Unfortunately, we still won't be getting such a game mode in Payday 3. The people at Starbreeze Studios have stated that when it came to Payday 3, they ultimately decided to stick with their core focus - co-op.
Is there a single-player mode for Payday 3?
Yes, single-player mode will be available for Payday 3.
We get it, sometimes you just want to lay in bed with your Steam Deck and enjoy a game on your own. However, do keep in mind that Payday games are made with co-op multiplayer in mind.
You'll still be rolling with your crew in single-player mode, but previous Payday games have shown us that the AI for your in-game friends aren't all that great.
So those are the different game modes for Payday 3. If you plan on getting the game on PC, have a look at its system requirements to make sure you can run it without issue.
