While it was announced in June 2016, we never got a proper look at Payday: Crime War in action. This adaptation of the famous PC/Console franchise on mobile promised big back when it was announced as it retained the first person perspective and pretty much every aspect of its core gameplay.

Payday: Crime War is a 4 on 4 PvP experience where one team tries to rob banks while the other, playing as cops, tries to stop them. It's more focused on competition rather than cooperation but the basic building blocks are still there and given the glimpses at the UI found in the video, it seems quite similar.

The cell-shaded look seems to suit the game well and it's still a gorgeous shooter. We'll have to wait a bit to see the game's business model and cotnrol schemes but we shouldn't have to wait too long as the game's scheduled to go live "soon" according to Overkill.
