In the lawless expanse of Villedor, where chaos reigns and loot is the currency of survival, a heist of unprecedented proportions is about to unfold. Dallas and his crew are poised to demonstrate their expertise to Aiden and the inhabitants of The City. Brace yourselves for a wave of new content, challenges, updates, and more. It’s time to strategize, don your mask, and seize the spoils. But remember, once you commit, there’s no turning back…
What will the Dying Light 2 Payday 2 crossover include?
The Payday series, a brainchild of Overkill, stormed onto the scene with the release of Payday: The Heist in 2011. Its sequel, Payday 2, elevated the experience to new heights. Over a decade of unwavering support and continuous updates have solidified Payday’s status as a legendary franchise. At its core, Payday 2 thrives on camaraderie, emphasizing that a lone wolf is bound for custody. From meticulously planning bank heists and jewelry store robberies to executing daring prison breakouts, the game immerses players in heart-pounding action, all set to a backdrop of adrenaline-pumping tracks.
Embracing the community
Much like Starbreeze and Overkill, Xbox is committed to delivering fresh content, events, and other surprises to reward our dedicated communities. Both games have earned a reputation for their meme-worthy moments, and our community’s love for memes is no secret. Payday 2 has collaborated with various IPs, introducing iconic characters like John Wick, Jacket from Hotline Miami, and Ethan and Hila from h3h3Productions into the fold. Now, let’s dive into what players can anticipate in this week’s Dying Light 2 Payday 2 crossover event!
The quest for Red Diamonds
During the Dying Light 2 Payday 2 crossover event, players, now known as Pilgrims, will be on a mission to acquire the coveted Red Diamonds. Infected Robbers, abundant in Forsaken Stores and Dark Hollows, hold these valuable gems. Alternatively, players can track down Thieving Bolters, guaranteed to possess these radiant treasures. Pilgrims who rise to the challenge will be handsomely rewarded with items like the Nightrunner Safety Pack, the Money Bundle weapon, and Dallas’ own stars and stripes mask. To echo the Mastermind’s rallying cry when donning the mask: “Time to break a little bad.”
A community challenge
In the spirit of camaraderie that defines Payday 2, Xbox has set a collective goal for the community. Upon amassing over 11,000,000 Red Diamonds, players will receive 25 Pilgrim Tokens, redeemable at the Pilgrim Outpost. These unique diamonds will be ripe for the picking across Villedor until 4 PM CEST on September 21st. And in the words of Hoxton, offering a motivational pep talk: “Alright fellas, let’s do this. Mask up, wan…” Yeah, Hoxton, we hear you.
Dress the part
To truly immerse yourself in the world of Payday, Xbox has prepared a special bundle. Alongside the Money Bundle weapon, you’ll don the Payday Gang Outfit, ensuring you blend seamlessly in your pursuit of targets. The Payday Paraglider is your ticket to a swift getaway, whether laden with loot or making a clean escape. And don’t forget The Change weapon charm, a potent reminder of your mission’s purpose—it strengthens your weapon, making it more resilient to blows. For more details on the Dying Light 2 Payday 2 crossover event, head to the Outpost, Pilgrims.
Dying Light 2 Payday 2 crossover promises an adrenaline-fueled ride for Pilgrims. Remember, as in Payday 2, tread carefully while looting to avoid the pitfalls of greed. So, venture forth to the Forsaken Stores and Dark Hollows, confront the Infected Robbers, and claim your prizes.
