With Payday 3 right around the corner, you might be wondering if it’s worth getting the Gold Edition of the game. Well, it depends on how much you value the extra benefits. But in this particular case, the Gold Editions’ special features aren’t anything to write home about, and we might be thinking that on this occasion, the standard base game is the best solution.

What’s in the Payday 3 Gold Edition?

Here is a more detailed look at the extra benefits included in the Gold Edition:

  • Three days early access: This means that you will be able to play the game three days before it is released to the general public. This can be a big advantage, especially if you want to avoid spoilers or get a head start on the competition.
  • Dark Sterling Mask: This is a unique mask that you can wear in the game. It is purely cosmetic, but it can be a nice way to customize your character.
  • Skull of Liberty Mask: This is another unique mask that you can wear in the game. It is also purely cosmetic, but it can be a nice way to customize your character.
  • Gold Slate Gloves: These are a pair of gloves that you can wear in the game. They are purely cosmetic, but they can be a nice way to customize your character.
  • Season Pass (1 year – Four heists, four tailor packs, four weapon packs): This will give you access to four new heists, four new tailor packs, and four new weapon packs. These are all major content drops that will add a lot of new content to the game.

If you think the extra benefits are worth the extra cost, then go for it. But if you are on a budget or you are not interested in all of the extra content, then the Standard Edition is probably a better option.

The Season Pass is the highlight of the collection, and it will give you a lot of new content to play with. The Dark Sterling Mask and Skull of Liberty Mask are nice bonuses, but they are not essential. The Gold Slate Gloves are purely cosmetic, and they are not worth the extra cost of the Gold Edition. With that being said, these are all in-game cosmetics or things you wouldn’t really be losing any sleep over.

Overall, we think the Payday 3 Gold Edition is a good value for fans of the series. However, it is not essential, and the Standard Edition is a perfectly good option as there’s nothing you’ll really be missing out on.
