Whenever I gave a quick description of Payday: The Heist, I would always say that it's like Left 4 Dead, but with cops instead of zombies. It seems that I was not the only one that thought of this as news today from OVERKILL Software confirms that they will be working with Valve on a project. Here's what OVERKILL's Game Director Ulf Andersson had to say:
“As perceptive gamers will have noticed, several hints have recently been dropped into PAYDAY The Heist, which has led to various rumors. We are excited to be able to confirm that an in-depth collaboration between OVERKILL and Valve is currently in production.
We are working on a very cool blend of PAYDAY and Left 4 Dead. I am sure it is so exciting that it will have some players check into the hospital before we are done.”
It's great to see a small studio create such an impact with a game that Valve has decided to work with them. Hopefully we'll hear more news about this project very soon.
