Payday 2’s newest character is an Irishwoman with a penchant for smashing people’s heads in.
Clover is the new “heister” included in Payday 2‘s DLC released Tuesday, called The Diamond Heist. She’s also the series’ first female heister, has her own unlockable “female” masks, and specializes in faster lockpicking and bodybagging with her “Burgler” perk. Her weapon of choice? A L-95 assault rifle named “Queen’s Wrath” as well as an Irish wooden club known as a “shillelagh”.
Developer Overkill Games teased back in October that they would release a playable female character, though they didn’t release any information about her until now. (See the short teaser trailer below.)
Another Female Heister in the Works?
Payday 2‘s composer Simon Viklund has also has indicated that there may be another female character in the near future. Clover’s initial voice actress was Scottish, but because the character has an Irish background, Overkill used a different actress for Clover.
@Bahziivol We’ve made a little switcharoo: Clover will again be Irish, and voiced by Aoife Duffin. The Scottish actress will still be used.
