Payday 2 is on its way to Nintendo Switch

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at or catch him on Twitter, here.

Will it raid your wallet again?

Co-op bank robbing shooter Payday 2 will be breaking into the Switch’s lineup early in January 2018.

The game will launch on February 23 in the UK, and a couple of days later on the 27th in the US.

Payday 2 was originally given a “winter” release date, but Overkill have now locked down the date in 2018 (that may technically still be winter).

Payday 2 first launched in 2013, and sets you and up to three friends as bank robbers tasked with stealing from increasingly challenging vaults before the cops arrive. If you leave it too long, or don’t keep enough of an eye on your hostages, the cops will come down in force and you’ll have to shoot your way out to a getaway vehicle.

The game has received numerous updates since launch, including free missions, characters and a ton of cosmetic masks for the discerning criminal.
