While a Shadow Warrior 2/PAYDAY 2 crossover was probably wasn't predicted by anyone outside the dev teams, it makes a lot of sense. Both are first-person shooters. Both support up to 4-player online co-op. Both have "2" in their names... well, okay maybe that last one is irrelevant. Regardless, the Shadow Warrior 2 x PAYDAY 2 Crossover event is now live.
In SW2, players will be able to get their hands on two PAYDAY 2 weapons: the AMCAR rifle and the money bundle (yes, really). They'll also be able to grab a Dallas mask for co-op play. In PAYDAY 2, players can now wield Lo Wang's Kazaguruma. Four SW2-themed masks are also available to wear on your many heists.
Steam is running a promotion alongside the event where interested parties can pick up a bundle containing both games for $31.48 (48% off), PAYDAY 2 for $4.99 (75% off), or Shadow Warrior 2 for $29.99 (25% off). Anyone who already own one of the games on Steam gets another 10% off the other.
We gave both games high co-op scores, with PAYDAY 2 receiving at 4.5 out of 5 and Shadow Warrior 2 also receiving at 4.5 out of 5. It's always nice to see developers and publisher teaming up like this, and it's especially exciting to see it with two games sporting such strong co-op gameplay.
