Dennaton Games' highly-anticipated top-down ultra-violent sequel Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number has finally been given a solid release date of March 10th, though the game is sadly still banned here in Australia.
Back in January our Australian Classification Board ruled that Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number would not receive a classification due to an apparent scene in the game that implied sexual rape. A refused classification means the game can not be sold publicly or advertised, though developer Dennaton Games has suggested that Australian fans simply pirate the game.
For those who are able to purchase Hotline Miami 2 and happen to also own PayDay 2 will receive a Jacket character pack and exclusive masks for free. Purchasing the standard edition of Hotline Miami 2 gets you the Hotline Miami Mask Pack, which comes with six masks: Richter the Rat, Jake the Snake, Alex the Swan, Tony the Tiger, Corey the Zebra, and Helmet. The mask pack also adds 5 gallons of Hype Fuel for PayDay 2’s Hype Train event.
Those purchasing the Digital Special Edition of Hotline Miami 2 will receive the Jacket character set, all six masks plus the additional “Richard Returns” mask, a Sociopath perk deck, the Carpenter’s Delight hammer weapon, an SMG called Jacket’s Piece, and 10 gallons of Hype Fuel.
Due to Australia not selling the game, Dennaton has asked that those who do happen to find a way to buy the game send Overkill an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Australian Heister calling in” as the subject line.
You’ll then need to verify your Australian citizenship with an ID or passport in order to receive a special code for the PayDay 2 content.
