Sony's decided that as nice as it is to have lots of people playing crime-FPS Payday: The Heist, it would be nicer still if even more people were playing it. Hence, the company's offering free playtime on the PC version of its Heat-inspired shooter all weekend. Head to Steam for a free trial, or to pick up the game for 50% off, with both deals lasting until Monday morning.
We reviewed Payday: The Heist back when it was released in late 2011, enjoying the game's frenetic, antisocial action and shameless lifts from big-budget crime movies. We also called out the value represented by this download-priced shooter – so if you have no money whatsoever, consider this a free training tool on the road to solving your problems?
(Note to our more desperate/humorless readers: Please, please don't actually use Payday: The Heist for training purposes. And if you do, definitely don't say we told you to do it.)
