Video game publishers 505 Games and developers Overkill Software have released their latest bit of DLC for Payday 2. This time however they have teamed up with Hotline Miami developers Denaton Games and publishers Devolver Digital on the games seventeenth piece of DLC. It unsurprisingly called Hotline Miami and focuses a new heist for the Elephant contract. The DLC also adds eight new masks, weapons, patterns, materials and seven new achievements.

I haven’t had the chance to try out the new Hotline Miami DLC for Payday 2 but from what I have seen it looks like Payday and Hotline Miami go surprisingly well together. It’s kind of strange to see enemies from a top down game like Hotline Miami in first person view and in 3D while still managing to keep the same sort of artistic feel. Only a few other games have done it well such as Grand Theft Auto and Fallout.
The only problem with the Hotline Miami DLC is that quite a few of the stuff included with the DLC requires you to already own Hotline Miami which is bad as Hotline Miami is a great game everyone should own and play but imagine if Overkill Software partnered with a bad or really expensive game. It would be pretty terrible for fans of Payday 2 having to buy a game they have no interest in at all just for the sake of some items they already paid for.
I probably wait for this DLC to be on sale as I haven’t been playing Payday 2 much lately but if you are playing it a lot you probably own it already but I would still recommend people get the DLC.
