Free is one of our favorite words in these ever-increasingly expensive days. Overkill and Starbreeze have made our week with the announcement that Payday 2 is free to play all weekend. The free weekend begins Friday, November 8th and ends on Monday, November 11th.
In addition, the Silk Road Update has been released that includes some free content for all players and a huge number of bug fixes and technical improvements. Most notably, players will find the brand new cosmetic Outfits system. This allows players to choose their mask of choice and an outfit from “a selection from inventory”. The team has made big improvements to the UI and added the Community Safe 8 package to the drop pool. The latter comes with 16 new weapon skins.
The game has also been updated to bring a trio of premium DLC to players for $9.98. It includes Tailor Pack 1 DLC outfits collection, the Cartel Optics Mod Pack DLC with weapon attachments, and the Border Crossing Heist content DLC.
“The Payday Gang’s enemies, Murkywater and the Dentist, are moving money and illicit merchandise from the US to Mexico through a tunnel across the border. The Gang gets wind of this and formulates a plan. While some Payday Gang members are off rescuing Bain, others will travel to Arizona to hit Murkywater and the Dentist.”
For those who like what they see during the free weekend, the game can be purchased at 50% off for only $4.99. The Border Crossing Bundle which includes the full game and all of the new DLC is $9.98.
