So what’s all the fuss regarding Payday 2’s latest update? The event kicked off last Friday, and every day since then has brought forth a new addition that ever so slightly changes your experience. For starters, your criminal’s hideout is now customizable (please keep in mind you'll need to be at least level 25). The safe house contains 16 common areas which can be individually upgraded with “continental coins.” Those concerned about opening up their real-world wallets to pimp their pads should know that coins can be earned by completing heists or side jobs. One notable aspect of customization involves mini games which can be added to your shelter. You will now have the ability to hone your melee skills with a punching bag, test that eagle-eye of yours on the shooting range, or practice your slap shot on a mini hockey arena.

Last time we looked at some of the moments over the past two years with PAYDAY 2 that lead its developer, Overkill, to decide on implementing microtransactions, from their own point of view. This time, we turn a bit more to the community perspective and dive a little deeper into those same events, starting with where we left off: the Hype Train eve...

The idea of “microtransactions” has become so anathema to some within the video gaming community that merely speaking it in relation to a game will lead to outright dismissal of that title or campaigns to try and tank its sales via negative reviews. This is further amplified if those transactions are tied to any kind of in-game perks be...

In a two-hour long discussion with their volunteer moderators (who went on strike temporarily in the midst of all this), producer Almir Listo listened and responded to the fury of the PAYDAY 2 community. Chief among these topics was the community (rightly) wanting to know why Overkill thought any of this was a good idea. In defense of the team, Almir stated that they felt (and still feel) like the inclusion of microtransactions and the most recent update were both good ideas, but that they were not communicated well. Additionally, they are looking into ways to better compensate those players who purchased the Completely Overkill Pack for $20 earlier this year as part of the spring "Hype Train" event.

In a video update posted last Friday, producer Almir Listo confirmed that the patch to address the matchmaking issue on Xbox One has been submitted to Microsoft for approval. Assuming that it goes through and everything looks good, then players should be seeing that pop-up sometime in the next couple weeks. When it does, the matchmaking system will be a little different and so the rest of the video walks through how it will work going forward.

The drill, which costs $2.49, can occasionally be received as an in-game reward for completing missions, but the most reliable way to get one is by spending that cold-hard cash. What makes this particular instance semi-odious is that the developers stated they would "have no microtransactions whatsoever" in the game. Additionally, the way Overkill has handled the release of this information seems a bit shady; as if they knew that it was a bad idea and are attempting to deflect some of that ire. Saying that fans of the game are "not happy" is an understatement.

Producer Almir Listo took to Reddit and YouTube recently to address the concerns players have about the current state of the game on the consoles and offer some explanation. For the Xbox One issues, an entire reworking of the matchmaking system is required.
