The following is information regarding a voluntary beta test.
If you right click on PAYDAY 2 in your steam library and go to properties -> beta you can change to open beta. There is no password, just press “check” and then hit OK. This is a beta build focusing on a tech solution that we are testing internally. We would like to invite you to try it as well and see if it works for you. It should make the game much smaller than it currently is. There are no other features that we would like to have tested in this build.
Please note that the beta size is 10,5 gigabytes. You will probably have to re-download some files.
Please also note that if you join the beta, you do so at your own risk and should make a back-up of your save file in case of any unexpected issues. There are guides in the PAYDAY 2 community where the process of backing up save files is explained.
If this tech test works we might be able to reduce the total game size by 20 gigabytes down the line.
Any reports of your tests can be shared in the comments below or in the stickied forum thread under General Discussions.
