You might not know this, but murderers love cross-brand synergy. That's why hot on the heels of some John Wick co-marketing, Payday 2 is getting a rash of neon-soaked DLC to celebrate the release of Hotline Miami 2. Remorsel...


Payday 2 game director David Goldfarb, formerly of DICE, has left Overkill Software to start a studio of his own, reports Polygon. It's here he'll be able to escape big-team, AAA development at long last. "It doesn't matter w...


Little is known about Starbreeze Studios' upcoming game Cold Mercury other than that it is (or was, as of 2012) going to be free to play. According to one of the company's investor reports, the game was eventually merged with...


You might've heard about Riddick: The Merc Files, a new iOS game that was frightening to see crop up so close to the news that Vin Diesel, Tigon Studios, and some ex-Starbreeze developers are working on a Riddick game. These ...




Payday 2 is doing very well for itself. At retail, it broke into the NPD's top 10 for August 2013 but, here's the thing about that: the game's 1.58 million copies sold, according to Starbreeze, were 80 percent digital. Intere...


As a fan of Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick, it's been a pleasant surprise to see another film based on that world and character come to fruition. I wasn't holding out for another videogame, however. While this is o...


Despite the fact that it hasn't even launched yet, Payday 2 is profitable. The cooperative heist game, which is currently playable in beta, hits Steam on Tuesday. "Starbreeze today has once again demonstrated that our strateg...


Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons just came out for Xbox Live Arcade to little marketing and fanfare this past week. We're here to remind you that's it pretty great though, and something worth adding to your XBLA collection. Or, ...


Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons is an anomaly when it comes to Achievements. Not a single one will be unlocked through normal gameplay. However, every last one takes only seconds to get and isn't dependent on anything othe...


It's time to pull off the ultimate heist as PayDay 2 arrives next week. It'll be out first on August 13 for Steam on PC, then August 16 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. To go along with that announcement is the latest trailer and batch of screens. Spoilers: In it we see people committing crimes. Whoa!


It all starts innocently enough with a pair of brothers making their way through town. Sure, there's a task at hand, but urgency isn't an issue. It should be, but it isn't. Soaking in the warm glow of the sun and playing with...


There's a special homage to Hotline Miami in Payday 2! You can purchase a pig mask called "The Hog" and it has some familiar sounding text associated with it too. Yeah that's about it. Just a neat little thing. Anyway, we're...


The North American collector's edition for Payday 2 is notable in that it's priced at a reasonable $59.99. That, and it includes a wearable mask, which is a pretty good bonus as far as these things tend to go. There's also a...


Payday 2 feels like one of the most ambitious sequels in recent memory. I was a fan of Payday: The Heist, which in and of itself is high praise. Normally I can't be bothered to play online multiplayer and I've had first-perso...


Behold, a teaser trailer for the upcoming Payday live-action web series. The teaser stars Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf, and Chains as they get ready to pull off some heists in Washington D.C. Episode one should be launching in a week or so. Obviously this is all aimed at hyping up Payday 2, which will be out this August in North America for Steam, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.


PAYDAY: The Heist always reminds me of Michael Mann’s brilliant, taut tale of thievery, Heat. The opening of The Dark Knight reminded me of Heat, too; a more somber Point Break, given the creepy clown masks. And now PA...


Coming up later this spring is an intriguing game from Starbreeze and film director Josef Fares called Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons. We got a brief look at this Steam, Xbox Live Arcade, and PlayStation Network title last ye...


Syndicate developer Starbreeze has finally lifted the lid on the project once known as P13. It's a 505 Games-published title for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network, titled Brothers - a Tale of Two Sons.  Not quite...


Electronic Arts has admitted that the attempted Syndicate reboot didn't pay off as intended, but that hasn't stopped the publisher from wanting to bring back more old game names. After all, there's still so many things that i...


Starbreeze, developer of such fine games as Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, The Darkness and the recently released Syndicate, has announced that their next title, Cold Mercury, will attempt to tackle ...


Lock and/or load for "Multiplayer Monday" today on Mash Tactics. King Foom is looking for recruits for a co-op campaign through Syndicate, and skilled hands (or absurd creations) to challenge in SoulCalibur V. As always, play...


Starbreeze Studios certainly turned heads when it unveiled its progress on a brand-new Syndicate game, although attached to many of those heads were scowling faces sporting sneers of disgust. Syndicate is yet another classic ...


Syndicate's launch is a mere five days away and I'm still no closer to deciding whether or not I want to actually pick it up, but I'm certainly interested. This trailer hasn't helped me make up my mind, but it was pretty coo...


Electronic Arts and Starbreeze Studios have revealed some familiar names included in the voice cast of Syndicate. First up is Rosario Dawson, who is described as playing a "rising star" in the syndicate EuroCorp. "She's an in...


Today will be a very special 'New Release Showcase' with The Darkness II. King Foom has committed to completely finishing the game in one go. Darkness II's solo campaign has been clocked in at around six hours, but how long w...


The Darkness was a rather solid first-person shooter and a good example of a license being properly handled. Developed by Starbreeze Studios, it featured some bold gameplay choices that didn't always pan out but man...


A new trailer for Syndicate went up today, detailing the "DART 6" abilities that players will have at their disposal. The video details a lot of the stuff that yesterday's demo simply didn't have, making me feel much more co...


While even EA's single-player games have found excuses to slip in an online pass, the co-op fueled Syndicate is confirmed to NOT use one at all. According to EA, it's all about encouraging gamers to play it ... what an innova...


As anyone interested in Starbreeze's Syndicate will know by now, a demo for the FPS was released on the PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE yesterday. It allows players to try out a level called "Western Europe" with up t...


Boy, that Syndicate sure is a first-person shooter! That is my initial thought after giving Syndicate's co-op demo a spin. When I say that, I don't mean to imply I'm one of those folk who hate a game just because it's bears t...


A four-player co-op demo for Starbreeze's Syndicate shall be available for your downloading amusement on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network today. The demo shall showcase one of the game's nine levels.  The Xbox Live vers...


The illustrious Max Scoville and I recently had the chance to check out a few of the four-player, co-op missions in Starbreeze Studio's upcoming cyberpunk shooter Syndicate. While you can check out Max's impressions here, du...


This latest trailer for Syndicate is pretty damn exciting. It's a sparse overview of the title's cooperative mode which lets you team up with three other operatives on assignments deemed to difficult for a lone agent to...


In news that should shock nobody by now, Starbreeze's upcoming Syndicate reboot has been refused classification in Australia, making it illegal to sell in the country. The game's violent content has been cited as the reason, ...


Reboots are nothing new to the videogame industry. This, arguably, common place occurrence seemed to take a turn for the weird when Take-Two announced the re-imaging of the PC strategy title X-Com into a first-person shooter....


Starbreeze's reimagining of the classic strategy game, Syndicate, might have ruffled some feathers with its switch to a first person perspective, but EA isn't writing off a proper remake. Speaking with Eurogamer, EA executive...

Sweden's Starbreeze sure is keeping itself busy these days. With the recently announced Syndicate reboot for Electronic Arts set for a 2012 release, it's already looking at its next preject: a new and original IP. The studio ...


Some details on the long-rumored Syndicate reboot were put up on EA's Origin store in the form of a product description, and naturally NeoGAF has snatched it up before it was taken down again. It's a shooter, but we already k...
