PAYDAY 3 invites all players to a technical open beta to stress test servers

A new invitation for players to stress test servers on Steam and Xbox from September 8th – September 11th.

Deep Silver and Starbreeze announce that PAYDAY 3, the ultimate co-op heist shooter fantasy, is hosting a Technical Open Beta from September 8th to September 11th. The goal is to stress test the servers for the upcoming launch on September 21st. 
The Technical Open Beta will require no key to access and feature the same content as the technical closed beta test conducted in August 2023. It is based on a game version from April 2023 and not a final representation of PAYDAY 3. This Technical Open Beta allows the development studio to identify potential upcoming issues with the servers prior to launch. 
The PAYDAY 3 Technical Open Beta will offer: 
●    The original gang: Dallas, Hoxton, Chains and Wolf. The iconic clown-masked characters that made the PAYDAY franchise infamous are all playable. 

●    No rest for the wicked is a PAYDAY 3 bank heist, that charges the players with relieving a small bank of the cash cluttering up their vault. It’s their own choice to go stealth without anyone noticing how the cash evaporated or go loud to really experience that NYC robbery feeling.

●    All difficulties will be playable, level cap is Infamy Level 22 and Weapon Level Progression is at 8.

More information about the Technical Open Beta can be found on the PAYDAY website

Hopefully the game looks, feels and runs better from the closed beta


Tried the last game Alienware gave out keys and it was okay for a single map.

It did not feel as fun or polished as Payday 2, but that game had years of updates and changes as well as multiple maps added over time.

There were some new features compared to Payday 2, but it is different in a way that older fans may or may not like.

I'd wait until reviews after the game and seeing gameplay from other maps because the beta didn't sell me on getting the game.



Could not get this to work in coop. It would always drop someone from the friends list.
