Would you like a free copy of a game where you can rob or defend banks? Since I don’t see why anyone wouldn’t want that, you’ll be glad to know that Overkill Software’s Payday: The Heist will be free on Steam on October 16th and to keep the game forever, you need to download it before the promotion expires. Take into account that the freebie will remain that way for 24 hours and that you have to join the Payday 2 Steam group to claim the free title.
The freebie was one of the many rewards that the developer established after their group reached different milestones. When 1,050,000 people joined the Payday 2 Steam group, Overkill announced that the original Payday was going to be available for free during “Crimefest.” Other rewards (which you can check out on this convenient list) include new weapons, masks, free downloadable content, playable characters, heists and so on.
In case you’re interested, this is what I had to say about the first person shooter in my review: “Despite some poorly explained mechanics, Payday: The Heist is pure and relentless fun.”
