The Yakuza Character Pack is a DLC pack for PAYDAY 2. It is the fifth character DLC and the fourth purchasable one available. Released on August 27, 2015, it is available for purchase on the Steam marketplace and also released through special editions for consoles.
Once you have bought the DLC, you will unlock the Jiro mask in your inventory, but you will have to obtain the Jiro Begins mask via card drops. They can be returned to your mask stash for free, but any pattern, color or material as well as the customization fee to put these together will be lost.
The true nature of a yakuza is to flourish when all seems lost. The brink of defeat is merely an excuse to laugh in the face of Death, and find an inner strength to survive and thrive.
The Yakuza are one of the most feared crime syndicates in the world. Ruled by the ninkyo and lead by the Oyabun, the Yakuza are known for their strict code of conduct, organized nature and the tattoos that cover their entire bodies.
An outcast and a dropout from society, the Yakuza knows how it is to fend for himself. While he appears gentle, he is not to be taken lightly.
- This is the first character expansion to not contain the new heister's name in its title, but rather that of their associated perk deck. As another break from tradition, this is also the first purchasable character DLC so far to not coincide with the release of any major heist and have its own announcement page, which was eventually followed by the Sydney Character Pack.
- The Jacket Character Pack arguably counts as well as even though it cannot be purchased via normal means, a payment of some sort is still required to obtain it.
- During the scene in which Jiro was betrayed in the trailer, the driver runs to the left side of the truck and then drives off. In real life, Japan enforces a left-handed traffic law which requires all steering columns in vehicles to be installed on the right-hand side of the cabin instead of the trailer's left. This is most likely an oversight during production.
