PAYDAY 3 will be having a Technical Open Beta to stress test the servers before launch


From Press Release:

Larkspur, Calif. (Sept. 5, 2023) – Publisher Deep Silver and developer Starbreeze announced today that PAYDAY 3, the ultimate co-op heisting fantasy, is hosting a Technical Open Beta from Sept. 8 to 11. With one heist available for players to sneak or shoot through, players will be able to test their skills as Starbreeze tests its servers ahead of PAYDAY 3’s launch on Sept. 21.

The Technical Open Beta will not require a key and will be accessible to anyone. Players will be able to experience the same content as featured in the recent Closed Beta Test. The content shown during the open beta period is based on a prior game version from April 2023 and is not a final representation of PAYDAY 3.

The PAYDAY 3 Technical Open Beta will offer:

  • The original gang: Dallas, Hoxton, Chains, and Wolf. The iconic clown-masked characters that made the PAYDAY franchise infamous are all playable, each with their own unique skillset.
  • Featured heist: “No Rest for the Wicked” will be the playable heist during the closed beta. Representative of classic PAYDAY heists, “No Rest for the Wicked” tasks the players with liberating a small bank of the cash cluttering up their vault. Heisters can sneak through the building, “liberating” the bank’s cash, or go in guns blazing to get the full-on adrenaline rush of a big city bank robbery.
  • All difficulties will be playable, level cap is Infamy Level 22 and Weapon Level Progression is maxed at 8.

More information about the Technical Open Beta can be found on the PAYDAY website.

Aspiring heisters can join the PAYDAY 3 Technical Open Beta at:

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