"This game is really I think a much bigger and more complete experience," game director and former Battlefield 3 lead designer David Goldfarb said. "We're really taking it to the next level, I think, with a lot of stuff."

Payday 2 includes a number of features not found in the original, including a skill and progression system. In addition, the game features four different professions, each with its own unique abilities.
