Payday 3 Open Beta Announced for Xbox and PC Players

Starbreeze has recently revealed that its highly anticipated first-person shooter, Payday 3, will be offering an open beta to Xbox and PC players. The technical open beta will take place from September 8th to September 11th, allowing gamers to experience the game before its official release later this month. The beta will be available for free and accessible to everyone.

During the open beta, players will have the opportunity to try out one playable heist called “No Rest for the Wicked.” This heist involves liberating a small bank and its overflowing vault of cash. One of the notable features of Payday 3 is that it offers multiple ways to approach and execute heists, allowing players to choose between a more explosive and action-packed approach or a more stealthy and strategic playstyle.

The beta will feature four playable characters: Dallas, Hoxton, Chains, and Wolf. Each character will have their own unique skillset, adding variety and diversity to gameplay. All difficulty levels will be available during the beta, although the Infamy level will be capped at 22, and the Weapon Level Progression will be maxed at 8.

It's important to note that the progress made during the open beta will not carry over to the full release of the game. However, this provides an opportunity for players to familiarize themselves with the mechanics and gameplay mechanics of Payday 3.

Overall, the open beta for Payday 3 is an exciting chance for Xbox and PC players to get a taste of the highly anticipated first-person shooter. With its unique heist gameplay and diverse character options, Payday 3 is shaping up to be an immersive and thrilling gaming experience.
