Starbreeze Studios has announced that it is giving away five million copies of the shooter game Payday 2 on Steam. The giveaway lasts until June 21st 2017 or until all copies have been claimed.
In the game players are part of a gang that must complete various criminal activities, including robberies of banks, shops and armored cars, and producing and distributing narcotics. Players can play together with up to 3 friends or play with bots.
The game is also expected to make its way to the Nintendo Switch later this year. The Nintendo Switch version will feature tweaked user interfaces and a reworked control scheme to fit the console.
The giveaway may be related to the imminent reveal of the sequel to the game, which is likely to be titled Payday 3. Starbreeze Studios confirmed that it was developing the game back in May 2016.
To claim a copy of the game players simply have to log in to their Steam account and visit the game's Steam Store page.
