Players of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of Payday 2 are to get some free goodies in the shape of an “unique” mask called The Unforsaken, and $10 million in-game cash.
Meanwhile, the PC version has been beset with criticism due to the introduction of microtransactions.
“The past few weeks have been some of the most challenging in the history of this community,” explained producer Almir Listo on PayDay 2’s Steam page.
“Players have been angry with us, media have written about us en masse and our volunteer moderators went on strike. For all the distress we’ve caused the past few weeks, I’d just like to take the time and say that we’re sorry. We’ve done a lot of things right in the past, but these past few weeks we screwed up.”
It should be noted that at no point have Overkill said they will remove the troublesome transaction, merely that they we will be more pro-active in engaging their community.
