Overkill Software promises a free Steam copy for the co-op bank-robbing shooter PayDay: The Heist, later this week.
Following a three-year anniversary since the game's release, which was originally made available via Steam on October 18, 2011. Overkill has been working on bringing in as many possible players in the official PayDay 2 Steam Group, as part of Overkill's Crimefest promotion, rewarding players with in-game loot as new milestones were reached. These bonuses include "secret stuff" still in development that will be made available for free once completed.
Since the 1,500,000 million user goal has been met prior to the expected date, the developer is preparing to give away free-copies of PayDay: The Heist sooner than planned. Starting 10AM Pacific on Thursday October 16, you will have 24 hours to claim a free copy from Steam. At the time of writing, the game is priced at $15.
Crimefest promotion has offered several in-game items to the people joining the PayDay Community, from Brass Knuckles, and FBI files, to new primary weapons and the super Secret Stuff. The free copy was already prepared to be given to players since the game had reached the 1,050,000 user milestone.
