If you haven’t pre-purchased Payday 2, I’m sure you have your reasons. You’re obviously interested in the series, else why would you have clicked on the link? So I’m going to assume that, despite extensive preview and opinion pieces, it’s because you’re the type of gamer that likes to try before you buy.
Well, good news! Overkill announced earlier today that If you already own a copy of Payday: The Heist and you have the game in your Steam game library you should now be able to see the PAYDAY 2 beta there as well. You’ll still need to purchase the full game if you like what you see, but it’s a great chance to squeeze in some time with the game before launch!
If you do decide to pick the game up be sure to do so before the 13th of August. Doing so will net you the exlusive PAYDAY Loot bag, which includes the following in-game items:
- A unique red dot weapon sight modification available for use on all rifle weapons.
- A unique Skull mask.
- A unique mask pattern titled ”I LOVE OVERKILL”.
- A unique color pattern consisting of the colors red and black.
- A bundle of in-game cash.
It’s worth noting that items will not be obtainable after launch, so get your order in now!
As if that wasn’t enough another announcement revealed that the first piece of DLC for PAYDAY 2, titled “Armored Transport Heist”, will be free to anyone who has pre-purchased either the Standard or Career Criminal editions of the game.
Given that there’s a whole year of DLC planned there’s a lot to look forward to and it’s even better when it’s free!
