Well, it looks like the Overkill Studios and Valve collaboration has finally come to the surface. The two companies have come together to work on Payday: The Heist – No Mercy, which was revealed in a trailer posted on YouTube which has since been pulled.
The game will be a Payday game set in the fictional Left 4 Dead hospital, Mercy Hospital, which we first saw in the Left 4 Dead episode, No Mercy. The YouTube description mentioned that this would explain how the Left 4 Dead series began. So I’m guessing we’re either dealing with the world’s biggest butterfinger or the heist involved stealing some sort of chemical/drug which eventually causes the zombie outbreak.
No word on dates, pricing, or if this is some sort of Payday expansion or a full-blown standalone title. Either way, it’ll be interesting to see when the big reveal is finally shown. Sounds like a very cool concept. Prep your shotguns and grab your pills, because there are some witches to hunt.
