It’s Election Day in Payday 2 (And Free to Play for the Weekend!)


Overkill Software has released the third free DLC update for the Steam version of Payday 2 today, The Election Day Heist, featuring the new Election Day heist mission, as well as the Chimano Custom pistol, new asset types including Body Bags and a Spotter who helps look out for guards, additional achievements and some other enhancements.

But wait, there’s more great Payday news. Today also marks the start of a weekend long Payday promotion on Steam. Until Monday, Payday 2 can be downloaded and played at no charge. During the same period, the game can be purchased outright for only $9.99 and all paid DLC is similarly discounted. The original game, Payday: The Heist, has also been discounted by 80%, bringing the price down to just $3.99.

Now that’s what I call a steal of a deal, folks.
