Publisher Devolver Digital has finally announced a release date for Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, which will bring its intoxicating brand of hyper-violence and psychedelic gameplay to Linux, Mac, PC, PlayStation 3, PS4 and Vita on March 10.

In tandem with today’s announcement, Payday 2 dev Starbreeze confirmed a new-fangled collaboration with Dennaton Games to bring about a Hotline Miami-themed slice of DLC, ushering in two all-new character packs for the studio’s popular co-op based shooter. It’s understood this expansion will become available alongside Hotline Miami 2 when it releases in a few weeks time.

As for what fans can expect in Dennaton’s hotly-anticipated sequel, the studio has hinted that players will be able to follow in the footpaths of several different factions, and that the blood-drenched story from the original release will have ramifications for the events of Wrong Number. In fact, Dennaton even went so far as to say that the story of the follow-up will orbit around “retribution over spilled blood in the original game.” Yikes.

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number will make its long-awaited debut on March 10 across a myriad of platforms, including Linux, Mac, PC, PlayStation 3, PS4 and Vita. On this day, the aforementioned character pack for Payday 2 will also see a release, and you can check out the contents of said expansion below.
