Payday 2: Crimewave Edition is coming to the PS4 and Xbox One, Starbreeze Studios has announced.

The game will include bonus content and "enhanced features" for the new-gen consoles, though no specific details were mentioned regarding what this content will be - existing PC and console DLC seems a good bet.

No release date was given.

Our review of Payday 2 described the game as a "vacuous trudge" offline, but online play is a "tense and frantic experience".

I'm in two halves about this being re released. On the one hand there is scope for it to be something truly and the amount of support the game has had is incredible.

On the other hand it is extremely rough around the edges. When joining lobbies it would cause the ps3 to freeze about 20% of the time, it can feel like sometimes the mechanics don't work (over zealous cameras / NPCs etc) and the balance of cash / XP you'd get from missions was incredibly inbalanced.

It certainly isn't worth paying more than £15 more, that's for sure, but at least this has a bit if an argument for a re release, unlike Sleeping Dogs which has no reason to ever rear its ugly head again before its sequel's release date is withing weeks of firing distance. I have no idea who would pay £45 for a re release of Sleeping Dogs.
