Watch the NEW gameplay trailer here:

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.

At gamescom the PAYDAY 3 Live Action trailer was also revealed, featuring a high-octane cinematic piece which features musical compositions by the world-renowned Vienna Symphony.
