• A new heist available for free – The Shadow Raid Heist is the third free heist update to PAYDAY 2. It allows heisters to take a new contract from Bain and Gage called the Shadow Raid job. In a derelict warehouse in a bad part of town, someone has been busy. The blackhawks fly in and out all night, and no one knows what is inside. All we know is that there is a heavy security detail and the blackhawks and their cargo all bear the same mark… The Murkywater Corporation.
• The first stealth only heist – This time, there is no plan B. For the first time in the PAYDAY franchise, we are introducing a stealth only heist. Gage wants to see what’s in the boxes, but there are some major jobs lined up soon, and you can not alert the Murkywater to your presence. If you are spotted and can’t contain the situation, the alarm will be sounded and you’ll have 60 seconds to finish the job and get out.
• Steal an ancient samurai armor – For the true ninjas among you, there is an item of great value resting secure in the inner vault. If you can acquire two keycards and insert them into the lock simultaneously, the item is yours. That is, if you can get out with it unseen.
• Unlock a new mask – If you manage to complete the “I Will Walk Faceless Among Men” achievement, you will unlock the “Somen Mempo” samurai mask and strike fear into your enemies on the battlefield.
• 6 new achievements to unlock – Heisters can now enjoy 6 new achievements connected to the Shadow Raid heist.
• Game size decreased by 20GB – In connection to the release of the Shadow Raid Heist update, the content system of the game has been restructured to allow some assets to be loaded during loadout and the blackscreen instead of during the loading screen. This eliminates the need for duplicates between bundle files. The performance of the game isn’t affected at all and game size is dramatically reduced by 20 GB.
