Payday 2 developer Overkill Studios gave VG247’s Sam Clay a chance to play its superb heist game. Watch us completely cock-up a bank job here.

In the clip you can see us load up on masks, guns, armour and equipment before the job, and then proceed to ruin our efforts by being a bit too trigger happy and careless. We also buy some insider knowledge from a snitch to see the bank’s layout ahead of time, but it doesn’t help us much.

The commotion then causes a squad of armed SWAT members to come down on Sam like a ton of bricks, crushing his robbers like spiders under a pair of freshly-teethed golf cleats. Needless to say this is a brutal game, but if you’re a fan of Left 4 Dead and similarly cooperative shooters, you need to check this out.

UPDATE: Here’s a bit of additional video for you. Overkill’s Simon Viklund discusses the game’s police difficulty.
