Playday 3 Rolls Out Large Patch Packed with Over 300 Fixes

While Payday 3 continues to struggle, forcing many fans to opt for it’s predecessor, a brand new, rather large, patch has arrived that will address hundreds of issues in the game.

While the patch is much needed, it’s hard to see it turning the tide for the game, which has seen it’s player base dwindle since launch.

Here are some highlights from the official patch notes:

  • Nvidia Image scaling upscaler (NIS), Nvidia DLAA(v3.5), Nvidia DLSS super resolution(v3.5).
    • Some new tech features that let us take advantage of Nvidia’s advanced features.
  • DirectX 12
    • Added DirectX12 as the standard graphics API, inhouse testing shows a significant performance improvement when using DX12. DX11 remains and can be manually chosen with the launch option “-dx11“.
    • Hardcore “Cook Off” Challenge Reward
      • There’s a new challenge called “Kiss the Chef.”

        Securing 19 bags of perfectly cooked meth on Cook Off on OVERKILL difficulty will reward a unique weapon charm.

  • Various UI improvements
    • We’ve made several fixes to the UI, such as adding sliders, as well as added the much requested lobby unready function.
  • Controller Dead Zone settings
    • Additional controller settings allow for a much finer customization of your controller gameplay.
  • Rotating Security Modifiers
    • Starting with this patch, we’ll be rotating security modifiers on all heists for Very Hard and Overkill difficulty, to freshen up the experience. We’ll be updating the modifier distribution every two weeks. In the future, expect more stealth modifiers and loud modifiers in the rotation.
  • Game State Consistency
