New teaser trailer narrows down Payday 3 release date further
The new trailer gives us a brief but concise glimpse of a night scene in Payday 3, which also features the main characters Chains, Dallas, Hoxton, and Wolf, standing in front of the New York skyline with fireworks overhead. The video indicates that the footage shown is pre-alpha footage, which is likely to change between now and the final release. Through the post and also the linked Steam page, the release date has now been further specified as roughly 2023. Even though this is not an exact information, it at least increases the anticipation. We will keep you updated via this article if there is any news in this regard.

The original Payday gang is back
Since yesterday, the Steam page for the action-RPG shooter is now also live. There, the new installment has been announced under the claim “A New Criminal Dawn”. Besides a brief description, however, only the rough key data, such as tags and genre categorization, have been shown so far. More detailed information, such as system requirements, is still missing at the time of writing.
Will Payday 3 support crossplay / cross-platform?
So far, not many details about the game are known. What seems certain is that the third part also remains true to its game mechanics, and will feature a four-player Co-op experience. However, it might be unlikely that Payday 3 will support crossplay since its predecessor already only offers cross-generation play (with which you can play between PS4 and PS5, for example). Even though it is not possible to make a final statement about a possible cross-platform functionality at this point in time, many players are hoping for a surprise in this regard. So do we, and if there is any change in the information, we will keep you up to date here as well.
