“In Heist, players will hire a crew of specialized thieves to assist them with infiltrating secure facilities to retrieve valuable Artifacts. While bypassing security, they must be careful not to trigger the alarm or they’ll be overrun with guards. Retrieving the artifact will automatically trigger the alarm and players will have to make a mad dash to the extraction point. If they can’t escape, they’ll lose everything they stole.”
The servers are currently down for another couple of hours, but they should be back up at 4 p.m. EDT for the formal launch. Players can already download the GGPK file (unless you play on Steam or Mac) to prep that for the patch. Console players, we’ll see you back here for your launch on September 23rd. Check out the trailers and other goodies while you wait for server-up!
We are currently investigating the issue where having pre-downloaded the torrent is causing people to have to download the whole game again. We'll post updates when we have them.
