Let’s be honest, we can count the number of contributions comedian Dane Cook made during his brief run as “hot comic” on one hand and still have enough fingers left to count to four. That one shining moment of observational humor, though, is spot on — everyone would like to be involved in a heist. Now, considering that society frowns up such activities in real life (prudes) the folks at Overkill Software and 505 Games have teamed up to bring us PAYDAY 2 to live out those fantasies without getting shot and spending 25 years in prison that would normally accompany said endeavor.
Well, I’m pleased to announce that on this day, 505 Games’ generosity is bringing both worlds together and allowing you to “make off” with a copy of PAYDAY 2 for free. And they’re kicking it up a notch or six by allowing you to pick the platform (Xbox 360, PS3, Steam) AND hooking you up with the exclusive pre-order Loot Bag DLC!
So to recap. You can win any of the following:
a) An Xbox 360 retail copy with Loot Bag DLC code; these will be sent on Aug. 14th and should arrive during launch week. Please note only residents of the United States and Canada are eligible for the 360 version.
b) A download code for the PS3 version with Loot Bag DLC code; these codes will be active on Aug. 13th.
c) A download code for the Steam version; this is the Career Criminal Edition outlined here.
