Payday: The Heist is a co-operative first-person shooter video game developed by Overkill Software and published by Sony Online Entertainment. It contains seven different missions, with each mission containing random elements which alter the gameplay in subtle ways with the aim of enhancing replayability. Players use a variety of firearms to complete objectives (usually centered around stealing a certain object, person, or a particular amount of money). The game may be played alone, with AI teammates, or online. The game plays from the first person perspective, but offers a few twists on the standard FPS formula. Killing civilians is punished, instead players may take a limited number as hostages. Should any player get arrested (after taking enough damage and not being 'revived' in time) during the heist, one of his teammates may release a hostage, allowing a trade to take place which allows a single player to be released. Money gained from heists is used as experience points to level up, and multiple skill trees are available to give upgrades and bonuses. A sequel to Payday: The Heist titled Payday 2 was released.
