On the esports scene
One game featured in the Reaper Bundle was such a hit with gamers that it made its way onto the esports scene. Action RPG PAYDAY 2 sees players head to Washington DC as a notorious criminal gang looking for their next big heist.
With everything from small-time convenience store hits and kidnappings to cyber-crime and emptying out major bank vaults, up to four players can customize their own character and team up to get the job done. The game originally launched in 2013 and is rated 'Very Positive' on Steam - so it's not surprising why the game was picked up in the competitive world of esports.
