Exploring the New Combat Mechanics of PAYDAY 3 in the Latest Dev Diary Episode
The imminent release of PAYDAY 3 has fans of the cooperative shooter series both excited and cautious; without any news in over four years, there’s a lot of stake riding on its success. To keep potential players updated on the current development, developer Starbreeze Studios has released a new dev diary entitled “Exploring the New Combat Mechanics.”
The dev diary takes an in-depth look at the combat mechanics that will be featured in PAYDAY 3. Players will be given more mobility than ever before; levels will be larger, offering up more strategic opportunities and challenging players with tougher enemies. Additionally, the game will have a heavy emphasis on weapon modifications and customization in its loadout system.
The dynamics of combat in the game will be more complex than past entries in the series, with the introduction of new features like body armor, intelligent enemy AI, and realistic animation. Body armor, for example, will be able to take damage and be destroyed, depending on the kind of damage the player is taking.
The game also takes a much more realistic approach to combat, with enemies reacting and changing their approach to the player based on their weapons and strategies. The developers alluded to the game having more tactical and stealthy gameplay, as well as dynamic set-pieces, like explosions, which will be interacted with in a more realistic fashion than ever before.
The dev diary further demonstrates the potential of PAYDAY 3 as an incredible cooperative shooter, taking the series to new heights with its deep and immersive combat mechanics. Fans are sure to be more excited than ever once the game’s full release is announced, and it looks like Starbreeze Studios won’t disappoint.
