Payday 3 will continue a run of games we’ve been waiting a decade or more for when it launches later this year along with the likes of Armored Core 6 and Alan Wake 2. That wait officially comes to an end when Payday 3 releases on September 21, 2023, providing the threequel isn’t delayed which, considering what it will have to compete with at around that same time, definitely isn’t beyond the realms of possibility.

Payday 3 is launching in the same month as Starfield, and just a few weeks before the likes of Alan Wake 2, Spider-Man 2, and Super Mario Wonder consume our lives. If you plan on playing all or even just some of the games launching during the last few months of the year, and Payday 3 is one of them, you might want to get your pre-order in now. Not only are there bonuses to be had, but if you pay for it now, that’s one less game to worry about when all those release dates start to hit. It’s going to be an expensive couple of months.

Payday 3

Standard Edition

Just want the game and maybe a little extra for pre-ordering? No problem. Also note that if you want a physical copy of Payday 3, you will need to buy the Day One Edition rather than the Standard Edition.

Pre-Order Bonus

Additional Content

There are quite a few editions to choose from when it comes to pre-ordering a copy of Payday 3, and while that’s always nice, sometimes all you really want is the game itself. If that’s you, then the $40 Standard Edition is the version you want. There are actually two versions; the Standard if you’re okay with a digital copy of the game, and the Day One Edition if you’d prefer a physical copy. You can also bag yourself the Trifecta Loot Bag if you pre-order, regardless of which one you choose.

Silver Edition

If you do want just a little bit more from your Payday 3 experience without paying a lot more for the privilege, the Silver Edition might be for you, and its benefits will extend beyond release day alone.

Pre-Order Bonus

Additional Content

  • Dark Sterling Mask
  • Play Three Days Early
  • Season Pass Including First Two Heists, Tailor Packs, and Weapon Packs

If your hype for Payday 3 is bigger than the base game alone – it has been ten years since the last installment after all – then maybe you’re looking to pay a little extra to get a little more. If that sounds about right then the Silver Edition might be up your alley. Not only do you get some of the season pass and an in-game mask, but you’ll also get to play three days earlier than everyone else, providing you pre-order more than three days ahead of release day, of course.

Payday 3

Gold Edition

Still want more? Okay, here it is. Payday 3’s Gold Edition. Naturally a little bit more expensive again, but you also obviously get a little bit more. The last stop before the big one. Get off here if you don’t want to be tempted by the Collector Edition.

  • Golden State Gloves
  • Skull Of Liberty Mask

  • Play Three Days Early
  • Season Pass Including First Four Heists, Tailor Packs, and Weapon Packs

On up the beanstalk we go, and for those of you with $90 to splash on Payday 3, Starbreeze Studios is offering up the Gold Edition. Everything that comes with the Silver Edition plus a little bit more. A couple more in-game cosmetic items to let other players know you’ve paid the extra and access to the first four heists with your season pass rather than just the first two. Again, now is the time to stop reading if you don’t want to be tempted by the most expensive edition of all.

Payday 3

Collector Edition

As always, this is the big one. If you want to celebrate the first Payday game in a decade in style, then you need the Collector Edition. A lot of added extras, but it’s naturally going to cost you.

Here we go. If you’re still here I can only assume you’re among some of the biggest Payday fans on the planet and its third installment overshadows everything else that is still to come in 2023. It comes with a lot of stuff and unless you’re buying the Day One Edition, it’s the only version of the game that includes a physical copy of the game, not something that is a sure thing nowadays, even when paying for a Collector Edition. You will need to make a sacrifice to get your actual hands on it though, but it’s a small one. Since the Collector Edition comes with a physical copy of the game, you won’t get three days of early access like you do with the Gold and Silver Editions.


FAQ

Why Is Payday 3 Only $40?

All three of Payday’s games have been priced lower than most other triple-A titles at the time of their release. Its developers cite a want for as many fans of the series as possible to be able to play its games at launch.

How Many Heists Will There Be In Payday 3?

Starbreeze Studios has confirmed there will be eight heists in Payday 3 when it launches, presumably with more to come in the months after its release.
