PS5 Heist Shooter PAYDAY 3 will require an internet connection at all times

“You’ll be able to play by yourself, but I think you have to have a connection to play because it’s built into the original engine, it’s using cross-progression, crossplay, I think you need that. will have Being online to play,” he explained. Many of these logics don’t really make sense to us – for example, the temporal engine does No An internet connection is required – but we assume Listo was scrambling for reasons to justify the decision in an increasingly hostile chat.

Obviously the series is primarily aimed at online play anyway, so in our opinion this decision doesn’t hurt as much as if it was a purely single player experience.
