Press release


New free content, Solo Mode beta, and robbing the cops in the second DLC Expansion

15:00 CEST 20 JUNE 2024:  Deep Silver and Starbreeze confirm that PAYDAY 3: Chapter 2 – Boys in Blue, the second DLC Expansion for the ultimate heist shooter fantasy, releases on 27 June on all platforms. 

Following the events in Chapter 1: Syntax Error, the gang will take the heist to a police station, capturing the essence of PAYDAY, where every stolen gold bar is a statement against authority. 

DLC overview 
Boys in Blue is accessible to Silver Edition, Gold Edition, and Gold Pass owners of PAYDAY 3 and is available to buy separately on PC, Xbox Series S|X, and PlayStation 5. The DLC consists of:  

  • The Heist Pack: with PAYDAY 3: Chapter 2 - Boys in Blue 

  • The Weapon Pack with 3 new weapons, 26 mods and 2 cosmetics 

  • The Tailor Pack with 4 new masks, 4 new suits, and 4 new gloves.  

PAYDAY 3 second DLC Expansion comes also with a major free update. The Boys in Blue free update will be available for all players including: 

  • Solo Mode Beta (on all platforms) 

  • New heister Clover, originally introduced to the PAYDAY series in 2014, including a gun and weapon charm   

  • New Primary weapon – LMG  

  • Loadout renaming 

  • 3 new masks
  • 12 new flag stickers 
  • Twitch drops

Solo Mode Beta 

The Boys in Blue Update introduces a Solo Mode Beta, addressing community feedback received since the game's release.   

In this beta, the sections of the game previously hosted on PAYDAY servers are now hosted on players' devices. What it does is skip the matchmaking step, meaning players still must log in and have access to the internet, but only for the initial identification and start up. This is the first step to support a full offline option in the future.   

The four most well-known clown-masked criminals in recent video game history returned from retirement last year in PAYDAY 3 on PC via PC Game Pass, on Steam and Epic Games Store, as well as Xbox Series S|X, on Console Game Pass, PlayStation 5 and GeForce Now.
