DLC (downloadable content) was first announced by overkill_bo on the Steam forums on 5 March 2012. Since then, two DLC packages have been released. The No Mercy heist, made jointly with Valve as a noncanonical Left 4 Dead crossover, was released for free to all players on the PC platform on 25 July 2012. The Wolfpack, which includes two new heists and a new upgrade tree, was made available for purchase on 7 August 2012.
No Mercy was released for free to PC players on 25 July 2012, alongside Infected masks and a new menu theme. The plans for the PAYDAY – Left 4 Dead crossover were first confirmed on 21 May 2012 by Ulf Andersson, Game Director at Overkill Software:
As perceptive gamers will have noticed, several hints have recently been dropped into PAYDAY: The Heist, which has led to various rumors. We are excited to be able to confirm that an in-depth collaboration between OVERKILL and Valve is currently in production.
We are working on a very cool blend of PAYDAY and Left 4 Dead. I am sure it is so exciting that it will have some players check into the hospital before we are done.
Overkill Software released a trailer on 15 June 2012, revealing that the crossover heist takes place in Mercy Hospital, a location in Left 4 Dead; however, it is not a prequel. Instead, it takes place a few hours before the outbreak at Mercy Hospital.

Purchase the Wolf Pack DLC to host two epic new heists, free for all to join. Also included: the Technician skill tree, which includes three awesome new weapons, a crew bonus, new player upgrades, the deployable sentry gun equipment, and a raised level cap."
