It is a short gameplay trailer showing how the game looks and how Pearl and Joy will look in action. The caption of the tweet said that everyone knows the name of the 2 heisters, but they will know them for real. The 2 heisters Pearl and Joy are old characters that players already saw in Payday 2, but they were given a major revamp. As we know, Payday 3 follows up 8 years later after the story of the heisters in Payday 2 ended. Hence, the character designs of both of the heisters have been changed to make them look more mature and older. They have been updated to better match the modern theme of the game in general.
Not only do the 2 heisters, Pearl and Joy look amazing with their new character designs, but the graphics and setting of the game in general look very advanced. Compared to Payday and Payday 2, the third installment is set in a timeline of the 20th century, the 2020s to be exact. For this reason, the developers have given the game a modern makeover which is quite visible in the exclusive gameplay trailer. The game looks a lot more polished and better suited to the surroundings we would see in the 2020s. The timeline of the game being in the 20th century also means new and advanced surveillance, technology and possibly a rise in cryptocurrency being added to the game.
Take a better look at the gameplay trailer for Pearl and Joy with the version uploaded to Payday 2’s official YouTube channel:
Needless to say, Payday 3 is going to be an amazing game with all of the new added features and major updates added to it. The timeline, the setting, the environment and of course, the heisters will make the game possibly the best Payday game to be released thus far. The storyline of the game will be completely new because after the heisters retire from their criminal lives in Payday 2, we will get to see why they are returning to their old life 8 years later. Hence, make sure to stay tuned for more news on Payday 3 because we will be sure to keep you updated and take a look at the gameplay trailer for Pearl and Joy!
