May 7, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

Narrowing down the June 2015 release window, 505 Games and Overkill announced today that PayDay 2: Crimewave Edition is launching on June 12 in Europe and June 16 in North America for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Running at 1080p with an improved frame-rate and better textures, the Crimewave Edition includes over a year’s worth of DLC packs and content updates, including the Big Bank Heist and Clover, the first female heister.

505 Games talked about the new edition of PayDay 2:

PayDay 2: Crimewave Edition introduces new high-octane heists and new contacts The Dentist, voiced by actor Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), and The Butcher, voiced by Mira Furlan (Lost and Babylon 5). In addition to new jobs and multi-stage contracts, a wider range of weapons such as shotguns, sniper rifles and grenades deliver an explosive kick to the new enemy archetypes that players will face.

New characters, more masks and brand new perk system bring a whole new level of customization to the experience along with a fifth skill tree for seriously stealthy players. The all-new preplanning stage has also been added, providing everything that perfectionist players need to pull off their dream crime spree.

By pre-ordering the Crimewave Edition from select retailers you’ll receive the Hard Time Loot Bab, which includes free digital content. You can also pre-order it from the PlayStation Store to save 25%.
