Starbreeze AB, one of Sweden’s leading independent game developers, today announced a collaboration with developers tinyBuild GAMES and DoubleDutch Games for PAYDAY 2 and SpeedRunners as a part of the Spring Break event.

505 Games and OVERKILL – a Starbreeze Studio, today announced that hit co-op shooter, PAYDAY 2, will take over new gen consoles with the “Crimewave Edition” this June.
Today, North American PlayStation 3 owners will notice a sinister and old school surprise as they receive a free Sweet Tooth mask in PAYDAY 2! As Twisted Metal fans already know, the infamous Sweet Tooth is a maniacal killer clown that drives a combat ice cream truck.
The PAYDAY series are the best examples for a videogame version of Heat that we’re likely to get. OVERKILL is back, this time a part of Starbreeze, and with a much richer sequel, in quality and content. Unfortunately, some things hold it back from excellence.
PAYDAY 2 is priced at $29.99 on Steam and $39.99 on PlayStation Network, for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Also available on Steam is the “Career Criminal Edition” priced at $49.99 and at retail there is a “Collector’s Edition” priced at $59.99. A Games on Demand version will also become available shortly on the Xbox Live® online entertainment network from Microsoft for Xbox 360.
Additionally, two exciting announcements for Steam players were made today:
505 Games, a global publisher of video games, and acclaimed video game developer Starbreeze Studios today announced they have partnered to bring the previously announced titlesPAYDAY 2 and P13 (working title) to gamers worldwide in 2013.
“Our partnership with Starbreeze Studios is a testament to 505 Games’ commitment to working with top development talent,” said Ian Howe, president, 505 Games North America. “In addition to working with an amazing studio we are honored to also partner with acclaimed Swedish film director Josef Fares whose creative genius is bringing P13 to life.”
“When we started to plan the next steps for Starbreeze we wanted to find a partner, not just a traditional publisher, and 505 Games fit that criteria,” said Mikael Nermark, CEO and president of Starbreeze. “We feel that this collaboration can grow into a long-term partnership.”
P13 is being developed by Starbreeze Studios in conjunction with Fares whose visionary talents are guiding the storyline, look and feel of the upcoming action-adventure game which will be available for download.
