Payday 3 September 2023 Open Beta session will feature the April 2023 version of the game. Players will be able to access a single heist called the No Rest for the Wicked. This heist is set in a small bank, where players can dive into action with any level of difficulty. 

In its Open Beta FAQs, Starbreeze has clarified that this is just a technical beta test and that is why, more emphasis would be on meeting its technical goals. The priority is to test the server structure rather than the gameplay features. However, feedback is always welcome and players can leave it on the  Feedback and Bug Reports page

The beta session will contain just one heist and four heisters. Players will be able to access most of the weapons and items, if not all. The level cap is Infamy Level 22, while the level at which players can upgrade their weapons is Level 8.
