Payday: The Heist

Overkill Software, the studio behind the PlayStation 3 exclusive downloadable co-op shooter, Payday: The Heist, is now working with Valve on a shooter that blends ideas from Overkill's popular game with Left 4 Dead. The news comes by way of a brief update on Overkill's website (via Gamasutra).

Game director Ulf Andersson writes, "As perceptive gamers will have noticed, several hints have recently been dropped into PAYDAY The Heist, which has led to various rumors. We are excited to be able to confirm that an in-depth collaboration between OVERKILL and Valve is currently in production."

"We are working on a very cool blend of PAYDAY and Left 4 Dead. I am sure it is so exciting that it will have some players check into the hospital before we are done." Veiled threats directed at the gamers of the world aside -- exactly why will we be checking into the hospital, Mr. Andersson? -- this sounds like a pretty compelling development.

Left 4 Dead should need no introduction as Valve's popular first-person zombie shooter built around the idea of close cooperation and randomized mission structures. Payday: The Heist carries over a lot of those same ideas, in fact, though it's all framed against the backdrop of high profile robberies. It's hard to ignore the proximity of this reveal to June's E3 2012 trade show; I expect we'll be hearing more about this one soon.
