This article is about the DLC for PAYDAY: The Heist. For DLC for PAYDAY 2, see Downloadable content (Payday 2).

DLC (downloadable content) was first announced by overkill_bo on the Steam forums on 5 March 2012.[1] Since then, two DLC packages have been released. The No Mercy heist, made jointly with Valve as a noncanonical Left 4 Dead crossover, was released for free to all players on the PC platform on 25 July 2012. The Wolfpack, which includes two new heists and a new upgrade tree, was made available for purchase on 7 August 2012.



No MercyEdit

No Mercy was released for free to PC players on 25 July 2012, alongside Infected masks and a new menu theme. The plans for the PAYDAY – Left 4 Dead crossover were first confirmed on 21 May 2012 by Ulf Andersson, Game Director at Overkill Software:

As perceptive gamers will have noticed, several hints have recently been dropped into PAYDAY: The Heist, which has led to various rumors. We are excited to be able to confirm that an in-depth collaboration between OVERKILL and Valve is currently in production.

We are working on a very cool blend of PAYDAY and Left 4 Dead. I am sure it is so exciting that it will have some players check into the hospital before we are done.[2]

The hints referred to are a advertisements of a model who looks very similar to Zoey in Diamond Heist and Left 4 Dead med packs scattered in groups of four throughout Panic Room.

Overkill Software released a trailer on 15 June 2012,[3] revealing that the crossover heist takes place in Mercy Hospital, a location in Left 4 Dead; however, it is not a prequel. Instead, it takes place a few hours before the outbreak at Mercy Hospital.[4]

On October 30th, 2018, No Mercy was made into a level in PAYDAY 2, having retconned it being non canon to the story of the PAYDAY franchise.
