PAYDAY 3 Technical Closed Beta Launches In Early August
Starbreeze Studios, video game developers, along with Deep Silver, video game publishers, are preparing to release their long-awaited sequel, PAYDAY 3 on 21st September, 2023. The game will be available on PC via Steam, Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5. The companies have announced that ahead of its release, players can request access to a technical closed beta test, which takes place from August 2nd to August 7th. It will be available on both Steam and Xbox Series X/S.
Firstly, players must request access to the technical closed beta test by doing the following: “Steam: Visit the PAYDAY 3 store page and press “Request Access” near the top of the page. Xbox: Go to the Xbox Insider Hub, navigate to previews, select PAYDAY 3.” Furthermore, the purpose of the test is to prioritize meeting technical goals, rather than letting people try the game. Moreover, the team will choose applications randomly and pre-ordering does not guarantee access.
However, players will be able to create content from the closed beta test, but there will be certain limitations. Via a release, the developers stated, “This is a slice of the full game containing only 1 heist and 4 heisters. Most, but not all, weaponry and cosmetics are included. There’s also a level cap of infamy level 22, meaning that not all skill points will be available during the beta.” Additionally, progression from this closed beta period will not carry over to the full release of the game.
