Payday 2: Crimewave Edition plans heists for Xbox One, PS4

A life of crime balances risk with the tantalizing lure of bigger targets, and Overkill Software's co-operative shooter is gunning for its biggest holdup yet with Payday 2: Crimewave Edition on Xbox One and PS4. The related press release notes that the port is packing "enhanced features and a stash of new bonus content" in its dollar-sign-emblazoned knapsack, but further details are laying low for now, along with a price and release date.

When Payday 2 started its campaign of stickups in August, our review described it as a "nonstop series of little stories and moments of surprise."
