And considering the amount of post-launch support Payday 2 received, making it one of the best co-op games you can play right now, you may be wondering if its successor is getting the same kind of treatment.

If you’re at all familiar with how Payday 2 delivered its DLC in waves, a similar approach will be taken here. One season of content will be delivered over the course of a few months. So you won’t get a DLC’s entire drop of content all at once.

In addition to the content listed above, Starbreeze has also revealed other updates coming to Payday 3 across the first year of support. It hasn’t been confirmed yet what content will be a free update and which will be paid, but the list includes seasonal events, playable characters, skill lines, a new enemy, Unreal Engine 5 upgrade, and new quality-of-life features.
