Payday 2 goes free to the first 5 million people who install on Steam


Payday 2 is available for free on Steam to the first 5 million people who add it to their library.

As of writing, that number hasn’t been hit yet — you can still install the game by heading to this link, logging in and clicking ‘Install now’.

The history of Payday 2 is as controversial as the nature of the game itself — recently, it’s removed community-angering microtransactions. Despite a narrative heavy on robbery, the game’s also heading to the Nintendo Switch. That version won’t be free.

We reviewed Payday 2 back in 2013.
