Venturebeat is reporting that the upcoming mobile version of the PAYDAY franchise will have a open beta release in the next few weeks.
In PAYDAY: Crime War players will face off in 4v4 matches with teams taking the roles of thieves and the police squad ordered to stop them. Based on the trailer below it seems to include the same kind of heist gameplay as other games in the franchise, but now on your phone!
I'm very interested to see how well this game plays, and how it is received by the mobile gaming community. Not only is it a first person shooter, which is difficult to pull off on mobile, but it will be a strictly PvP and F2P affair. While Fortnite has shown a path to success in this market it's not clear how much room there is for other entrants.
As someone who has always been interested in PAYDAY but has never taken the plunge on PC or console I'm definitely excited to give it a try. I'll let you know my thoughts after I get my hands on the beta.
