The long-awaited Payday-like shooter developed by Haven Studios was shown for the first time at the recent PlayStation Showcase. I, for one was blown away by the trailer, which showed stunning visuals and fast paced, furious gameplay that immediately reminded me of the popular Payday series.
The trailer teased an exciting heist scenario, complete with a squad of professional thieves carrying out a well-organized crime. It looked like the game had kept what made the Payday series so popular, with its emphasis on cooperative play, high-stakes heists, and exciting gunfights.
The trailer ended with a QR code shown for the audience to scan. It seems that Haven has come up with a unique approach to letting interested players participate in a closed beta for their upcoming game.
In the beginning of the trailer, they can be seen going to taketheir.money (not an actual site) and logging in using the Sony format code. At first, an alphanumeric format code (H28E-N788-D46S) was revealed. To enter the code, you’ll have to visit this site.
The code for the format must be entered exactly as shown, with no lowercase letters or hyphens. Those who make it this far will be among the first to try out the game in beta and have a say in how it develops.

Even though the exact details of the closed beta haven’t been announced yet, I’m personally really excited about the chance to be among the first to play the game and help shape its growth. The fact that Haven Studios is providing early access shows they care about their fans and want to make sure the game is perfect before it’s released.
This is all we know for now, but rest assured that we will keep you updated as new information becomes available.
