Here's your first look at Payday 2

Overkill's criminal sequel looks set to rival Left4Dead in the co-op shooter stakes.

Overkill's shooter sequel Payday 2 has properly broken cover, and we've a little video preview showing you the game in action for the first time.

The follow-up to Payday: The Heist - a game that Rich Stanton enjoyed to the pleasant tune of an 8/10 - sees Overkill moving away from Sony and move under the wing of fellow Swedish developers Starbreeze.

Heading to XBLA, PSN and PC later this year, it's another co-op first person shooter set in the criminal underworld. There are now 30 missions - a big bump up from the six available in the original game - and perhaps more importantly there's the kind of polish and depth that was lacking a little from the original, and that perhaps held it back from being a serious rival to Left 4 Dead.

This is the second of Starbreeze's projects currently in development for 505, the first being the quite handsome looking Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.
