"99 Boxes” heist revealed during Opening Night Live (ONL) 2023, will be playable in Cologne

Cologne, Germany – 22nd August, 2023 – Today during gamescom Opening Night Live (ONL), Deep Silver and Starbreeze revealed a brand-new PAYDAY 3 Gameplay trailer that features rapper and actor ICE-T. PAYDAY 3 is the ultimate co-op heist shooter fantasy launching on September 21st, 2023.

Watch here:

ICE-T is one of the most outspoken and multifaceted artists in the world. In the universe of PAYDAY 3, he plays a contractor named Mac, who is introducing a heist, the missions in PAYDAY, to the players.
In the 99 boxes heist, players can team up in 4-player co-operative gameplay to infiltrate a highly secured container storage area. True to the core-experience of the PAYDAY-franchise, the 99 boxes heist in PAYDAY 3 can be approached in two ways: by sneaking into the warehouse avoiding guards, cameras and workers with a stealth approach. Or go by going out loud, guns blazing, which might end up in explosive shootouts with the police and SWAT teams calling in helicopter support. Whichever players choose, the goal is to team up and come out with the ultimate PAYDAY.
PAYDAY 3 will have a strong presence at gamescom 2023 with the 99 boxes heist playable in the PLAION business booth (Hall 4.2 Booth B041-D050) and the PLAION consumer booth (Hall 9.1 Booth B010-C019). Aspiring heisters are welcome to join the gang for another round of chaos and crime!

The four most well-known clown-masked criminals in recent video game history return from retirement this September 21st in PAYDAY 3 on PC via PC Game Pass, on Steam and Epic Games Store, as well as Xbox Series S|X Game Pass, PlayStation 5 and GeForce Now.
