In celebration of reaching 1.5 million members on Payday 2’s official Steam community group, Overkill, the developer behind Payday, is giving away Payday: The Heist for free on Steam for 24 hours only, starting Thursday, October 16th. at 10AM Pacific time / 6pm UK time. And if you download it during that time, the game is yours to keep forever, even when the game goes back to its original price on Steam.
To avoid any confusion, Overkill originally planed to giveaway the game on Oct. 18, but they have pushed the game’s free download window ahead two days as they reached their end goal faster than anticipated.
Read the official announcement here for more details. Overkill say that they will give out clear instructions on how to download PAYDAY: The Heist for free on October 16th. There are a ton of other rewards too, and some are still under construction. So you may want to join the official PAYDAY 2 Steam group for future updates.
Updated: You can grab it for Free for 24 Hours at Steam now.
