The update brings with it a whole host of improvements as well as new events, achievements, disguise masks and an all-new community-centric music track.

  • OVERKILL 145+ – Players who reach level 145 can now play on a new difficulty called OVERKILL 145+, which unlocks new events, achievements, and weapons.
  • Drop-In – Finally players will be able to join in games mid-heist, filters can also be set based on reputation and difficulty requirements.
  • SWAT Tactics – The SWAT captain has trained a slew of new recruits, resulting in challenging new tactics and counter measures for players to face on each of the heists.
  • Sweet Moves – Players can check out new weapon animations for the Shotgun. Law enforcers now move more tactically than ever before. Even civilians have new dance animations.
  • Portrait Window Additions – Players can now see the name of the character they are currently playing in the portrait window while in game.
  • Expanding Field of View (FoV) – PC Players can now choose what FoV they want to use ranging from 60 to 100 through the advanced graphics menu.
  • Diamond Heist Music – For PC players, as a token of appreciation to the community, 200 of the most dedicated career criminals’ nicknames have been immortalized in-game. The DJ has added a new music track, doing shout-outs to 200 players in the community.

So some pretty nice additions to keep things fresh for seasoned criminals, will you be going straight to the bank with this update?
