The wait for Payday 3 has been a long one, but Starbreeze Studios’ co-op heist shooter is finally just a couple of weeks away from launch. And before it releases, players are going to have the opportunity to dip their toes in the water to see what the game will have on offer- well, on some platforms at least.
Deep Silver has announced that Payday 3 is getting a technical open beta on PC and Xbox Series X/S that will run from September 8 to September 11. Just like the game’s closed beta last month, it won’t be available on PlayStation.
Deep Silver says the goal is to “stress test the servers” ahead of the game’s looming launch, and that the open beta will include the same content as the aforementioned closed beta from August. That will include four playable characters in the form of the original gang of Dallas, Hoxton, Chains, and Wolf, as well as the “No Rest for the Wicked” bank heist. Meanwhile, Infamy will be capped at level 22, while weapon levels will be capped at 8. Like the August beta, the upcoming open beta is based on a build of the game from April.
Payday 3 launches in full on September 21 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. Check out its PC requirements through here.
