The Payday 2 review embargo lifts today (8am to be precise) but as you can see, this news post is live instead of a review.

As was told there would be a 'day one update' - but got mixed replies back when trying to see how significant it was - we've decided to hold off for 24 hours to ensure we're reviewing the correct version of the game. After all, why slap a score on something that's going to be fundamentally different when you, the reader that is, play it?

We hope you understand, and please look for our review tomorrow.

Isn't there something between a preview and a review that you can use? Do we need to keep to set definitions?

That's fair enough. The patched game is the one we will all be playing so your review will be more on point, good decision. I agree with catterick too about shorter reviews.

Having just skimmed through the rather lengthy Kotaku review, I don't think they actually mentioned anything about a day 1 patch. I like that you guys do this. Also makes me realise how much I like shorter reviews.
