There's something about stealing things in games that's attractive; whether it's the lack of bloodshed, the thrill of the sneaking, or just the idea of getting rich.

Payday 2 is somewhat unusual in that it's very combat focused - while every good heist normally happens without incident. Still, if you want to steal audaciously, you'll have to meet the Payday 2 System Requirements...

Payday 2 Minimum System Requirements

OS: Windows XP

CPU: Intel Pentium Dual Core E2180 2.0GHz or AMD Athlon X2 Dual Core 4000+

RAM: 2GB System Memory

GPU: GeForce 8800 GTS or ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT

DX: DirectX 9.0c

HDD: 10 GB Free Hard Drive Space

Payday 2 Recommended System Requirements

OS: Windows 7

CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 2.33GHz or AMD Athlon II X4 620

RAM: 3GB System Memory

GPU: GeForce GTX 460 or ATI Radeon HD 5850

DX: DirectX 9.0c

 

Payday 2 should be an action packed shooter, so you'll need a medium rig at least to run it. There looks to be plenty in the way of high graphics for those who want them as well.

Payday 2 sees you attempting to rob jewellery stores, banks and more, and escape with the loot - can your team survive, or will you spend your time in the slammer? what do you think of the game's requirements, are they too high? Did any of you guys play the first game? Tell us below!

This game looks awesome! I just hope they improve the ai, because the ai in the first game was not the smartest, if you know what i mean.

The GTX 570 is better and also its performance isn't depending on driver support, SLI always has a chance of micro stuttering ect. So GTX570 is a better choice. also it consumes less power.
