Payday developers Overkill are giving away Payday 2 for free on PC through Steam for a limited time.
From today, players can login to Steam and claim their free copy of the game. This is a permanent copy of the base game and not a limited trial. There are only 5 million copies available however, so players will need to get in quick to claim their copy.
This free game will also entitle you to a copy of Payday VR, which will be given for free to all Payday 2 owners once the game releases.
This copy of Payday 2 will not allow you to download the DLC packs that have been released for the game. This is because the DLC packs are no longer on sale as Overkill are preparing to launch Payday 2: Ultimate Edition on PC. The Ultimate Edition will package the base game together with all of the DLC that has been released to date. Future updates for Payday 2: Ultimate Edition will be free for all owners.
