Payday: The Heist Gets An Official Release Date, New Video

I've been looking forward to Payday: The Heist ever since it I played it at E3.  While it won't wow anyone graphically, the cooperative gameplay is a blast.  The downloadable title will feature six different heist scenarios, each built with replay value in mind.  There's also an RPG-style leveling system to add to the longevity of the title.  It was scheduled to be out earlier this month, but suffered a slight delay.  We can now expect it next week.  Check out the following video where the guys hijack a truck in a slaughter house.
