A Steal: Payday 2 Free To Play All Weekend

Bang bang

Crime doesn't pay, They say, so why should you pay for crime? This weekend, you can explore both sides of that as the full version of heisting FPS Payday 2 [official site] is once again free for everyone to try. Until 1pm PST (9pm UK time) on Sunday, y'all can join your pals to rob banks, malls, warehouses, night clubs, and other places money likes to hang out if you head on over to Steam.

The game's on sale all weekend too, with a hearty 75% discount.

It's the usual free weekend dealio: you can play as much as you please until the trial expires, and then you have a little longer to buy it on sale if it turns out you're into it.

Payday 2 is £3.74 until Monday, or four for £11.24. The Game of the Year Edition with most (but not all) of its DLC is £7.49. Most of its DLC is on sale separately too, with 75% discounts on all but the most recent few, which are half-price.

Speaking of DLC, developers Overkill Software have announced the next pack. Coming next Thursday, August 27th, the Yakuza Character Pack will bring a new playable character in the form of former mob man Jiro, new Katana and Micro Uzi weapons, and the Yakuza perk deck. Here, meet Jiro, who's played by the fine actor Togo Igawa:
