Watch: ‘Payday 2’ Visual Comparison – Switch, PS4, Xbox 360

With Payday 2 launching soon on Nintendo Switch, fans are interested to see how the port performs on the latest hardware.

GameXplain did a fantastic comparison over on their channel, which you can check out below. After their analysis, the Switch version is very similar to that of the Playstation 4, but does take a minor visual hit.

PAYDAY 2 is an action-packed, four-player co-op shooter that once again lets gamers don the masks of the original PAYDAY crew – Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf and Chains – as they descend on Washington DC for an epic crime spree.


Up to four friends co-operate on each heist, and as the crew progresses the heists gets bigger, better and more rewarding. Along with earning more money and becoming an infamous criminal comes new customization that lets players build and alter their guns and gear.


PAYDAY 2 comes with full touch screen menu support, and a newly developed rumble feature that responds as you, for example, fire weapons or throw grenades. There’s also an added local multiplayer mode to the CRIME.NET – called CRIME.NET Local Play, that will make you able to set up a local game and invite friends that share the same local network. Finally, PAYDAY 2 comes with an exclusive character called Joy who’s initially releasing only on Nintendo Switch™ – complete with her own mask and weapons.
