Payday 3: Short teaser dates Steam release to this year

Right at the beginning of the new year 2023, Starbreeze announced: The long-awaited co-op shooter Payday 3 should be released this year – also on Steam, where the action game will already be added to your own wish list. Although there is a brief teaser for the vague announcement, there is not much to be learned from it.

From Sweden via Austria to Sweden

This year Payday 2 celebrates its tenth anniversary. Produced by Swedish developers Overkill Software and Starbreeze Games, the shooter was released on August 13, 2013 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. At that time, 505 Games acted as the publisher, but Overkill Software parted ways with the company three years later. In the case of Payday 3, Prime Matter is now to take over the marketing. It is a label of the Austrian publisher Plaion, which in turn is the new name of Koch Media announced in August 2022. On the other hand, the publisher fell into the possession of THQ Nordic in 2018, whose Swedish umbrella group THQ Nordic AB has been operating as Embracer Group since August 2019 and has recently made headlines with numerous acquisitions.

Who exactly is currently responsible for Payday is therefore not entirely uncomplicated. And because Plaion is involved and the publisher has been notable for having an affinity with the Epic Games Store in the past – some readers may remember the ongoing debate over the EGS time exclusivity of Metro: Exodus, which was released under Plaion’s label Deep Silver -, the Payday community recently feared that Payday 3 on the PC will not appear on Steam, at least for the time being. The fact that the first teaser is linked to Valve’s platform at New Year’s can sometimes be interpreted as a reaction to these rumours. The description on the corresponding shop page reads as follows:

PAYDAY 3 is the much anticipated sequel to one of the most popular co-op shooters ever. Since its release, PAYDAY players have been reveling in the thrill of a perfectly planned and executed heist. That’s what makes PAYDAY a high-octane, co-op FPS experience without equal.

Step out of retirement back into the life of crime in the shoes of the Payday Gang, the envy of their peers and the nightmare of law-enforcement wherever they go. Several years after the crew’s reign of terror over Washington DC has ended, they assemble once again to deal with the threat that roused them out of early retirement.

System requirements are not mentioned yet. Incidentally, the current trend is for publishers who previously switched to alternative stores to return to Steam.

Not much is known

Apart from the fact that the co-op shooter will appear on Steam, among other things, in the next 364 days – the wide and vague period suggests a start in the second half of the year, probably in autumn 2023 – not much is known: The just The 25-second teaser shows a New Year’s Eve scene in a city presumably based on New York and the silhouettes of four people, but ultimately reveals nothing new.

Barcelona offers 200,000 euros to the project that reduces the accident rate of motorcycles

Published

on

Barcelona City Council has launched a challenge for companies, startups, universities and innovation centers to present urban solutions that have as objective reduce motorcycle-related accidents. The chosen projects, which will be applied in the city, are part of the Barcelona Innova Lab Mobility initiative that promotes pilot tests to improve mobility.

Barcelona is one of the European cities with a greater presence of motorcycles and mopeds which represent 33% of the total census of vehicles, and motorcycle drivers account for 86% of the seriously injured, according to the balance of road accidents for the first half of 2022. With the aim of reducing accidents and increasing road safety in the city, these entities have launched this initiative to find and apply innovative solutions on the streets of the city, with the collaboration of the Tomorrow.Mobility show organized by Fira and the EIT Urban Mobility (European Union initiative).

The challenge, launched internationally, counts with an economic endowment of 200,000 euros, which will correspond to a maximum of 80% of the total amount of the winning solutions. The projects can be aimed at resolving the accident rate from behavioral innovation, that is, with solutions related to driving habits, and from technological innovation.

The execution time of the selected proposals is 18 months, of which the pilot phase must be a minimum of six. The proposals must be applicable in a real environment in the short term and must define, in this sense, its deployment space. In addition, it must achieve quantifiable results in relation to the safety of motorcyclists and third parties, which are lasting over time. Its innovative and differential component will also be valued both in the methodologies and resources used and in its execution.

This call is aimed at companies, startups, universities, research centers, technology centers, associations and foundations that have until next March 1 to present their projects. A committee of experts will assess the technical quality of the works presented and will choose the winning solutions that could be applied in Barcelona during that same year. The projects will have international projection with their participation in the next edition of Tomorrow.Mobility, which will be held next November together with the Smart City Expo World Congress at Fira de Barcelona.

Microsoft Teams integrates into Elgato Stream Deck

Published

on

The Elgato Stream Deck is a very interesting peripheral that we had the opportunity to analyze at the time, and that allows you to create different shortcuts and functions that will be associated to each of the available buttons. It allows you to create different usage profiles, and we can switch between them in a very simple way.

For example, we can assign to a button that directly opens a web page, to run a specific application, to perform a specific action and we can also set specific commands and download completely free applications. It is a very interesting solution, especially for professionals who are dedicated to content creation and streaming.

The point is that the Redmond giant has released an official plugin that allows you to integrate an Elgato Stream Deck device with Microsoft Teams. This plugin was announced by the American company earlier this week, but it was officially launched yesterday. The installation process is quite simple, but we can find more information in the official Microsoft forums.

Once installed, we can use the Elgato Stream Deck to access shortcuts and specific functions that will improve our user experience with Microsoft Teams. Thus, for example, we can blur the background in a video call by pressing a button, and we can also assign other specific functions such as raising and lowering our hand, muting ourselves, recording, and even to show live reactions during meetings.

This new plugin enhances the value of the Elgato Stream Deck, making it a very interesting solution for those who work remotely and have to participate in frequent video calls and events. Obviously it is still an excellent option for content creators and streaming professionals as well. I remind you that it is available in different versions, and that the standard MK.2 model with 15 buttons is priced at €149.99.
