PAYDAY: The Heist

What is PAYDAY: The Heist?

Payday: The Heist is a downloadable cooperative first-person shooter video game developed by Overkill Software and published by Sony Online Entertainment. In Payday: The Heist, players use a variety of firearms to complete objectives (usually centered around stealing a certain object or a particular amount of money). The game plays from the first person perspective, but offers a few twists on the standard FPS formula.

Overview

During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named payday_win32_release.exe. The setup package generally installs about 56 files and is usually about 42.52 MB (44,583,840 bytes).
