Kristine Steimer's Avatar + Posted by Kristine Steimer on Feb 10, 2014 // Sr. Community Specialist

Heads up, PlayStation Plus members. It’s time for some serious shenanigans – Payday 2 is coming to the Instant Game Collection tomorrow. Team up with your friends to pull off a variety of heists, like robbing a convenience store or taking down a major bank vault. Completing these virtual crimes will net you both experience points to build out your character’s skill tree and cash to purchase new weapons and other goodies. For PS Vita owners, our final PS Vita PLAY title, TxK, will be available tomorrow at a discounted rate.

You can download Payday 2 after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow.

PlayStation Plus: Instant Game Collection

Payday 2 (PS3)

Free for PS Plus members

Payday 2
PAYDAY 2 is an action-packed, four-player co-op shooter that once again lets gamers don the masks of the original PAYDAY crew – Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf and Chains – as they descend on Washington D.C. for an epic crime spree. The new CRIMENET network offers a huge range of dynamic contracts and players are free to choose anything from small-time convenience store hits or kidnappings, to major league cyber-crime or emptying out major bank vaults for that epic PAYDAY. While in D.C., why not participate in the local community and run a few political errands?

I’m having the same dilemma. It says I have to pay for payday 2 even though I have a PlayStation plus membership. Please fix!!!

Even though it says “it’s free”, it still charged my card. I had to call Playstion to get a refund for the $39.99 and they told me that the 1 hour demo is free, not the game. So I don’t know what this post is for. I’m really irritated because my $40 won’t be back into my account for 3 to 5 days.

Its on the free games collections and when you try to buy it has written” this item is avaible as afree download for playstation plus members…” But it still tries to charge my wallet, fix it soon

+ SpecialSause on February 11th, 2014 at 12:33 pm said:

I downloaded and it charged me. I think I still get the game but it’s a hassle I would rather not have had to deal with.

+ sharpshoot on February 11th, 2014 at 12:40 pm said:

what’s up with it saying you have to buy the game when on the store its saying free for playstation plus members


109

+ Zion_Fire on February 11th, 2014 at 12:41 pm said:

Ive noticed that all the icons have slowly changed to say free exept for the main item. On Payday 2′s store page, it still sais “Add to Cart $39.99″ instead of “+Free”. So I think its slowly being fixed, but it might take a couple hours before its fully registered as free to play for ps plus members.

I tried to download PayDay 2 and it says free on the ps store, but when I click on it to download the normal price shows up. I ignored it and continued to checkout, and it told me to add more funds to wallet. Why can’t I download it for free?

At Sony, the hamster has fallen off of the wheel, give them a couple hours to fix the problem.

Payday 2 is NOT free on my Playstation Plus membership account. It is in the free games category of PSN plus, but it’s listed at $39.99 and doesn’t have the “PLUS” logo underneath like all the others, what gives SONY??

Lol :) i’m sure it’ll be fixed soon!

Every week, I see the same posts from the same ignorant gamers who refuse to pay attention the previous week, when dozens of people educate them on the fact that the PSN usually updates at NIGHT, usually around 21:00, GMT-5 (EST in the United States).

If you went ahead with a purchase, knowing that it was charging your credit card, it’s your own fault, not Sony’s. Pay better attention in the future, and when you go to “purchase” something that is “free”, make sure it has the price of zero before you add it to your cart.

I feel no pity for anyone who bought Payday 2 before it got added to the IGC.

Sad that people complain about free games, and when they get them, it’s basically 30 day intervals for each one, deal with it

+ Nimmo6135 on February 11th, 2014 at 1:21 pm said:

I’m confused. I thought this Payday2 was going to be the full game? Seems I can only download a full game trail.. Please tell me this is a error or something, because I actually been wanting to play Payday2

+ Nimmo6135 on February 11th, 2014 at 1:24 pm said:

I have no idea how to delete my own comment, derp. Also double derp because I didn’t know the newer comments were listened further down the page list. Oh well, glad to see It is in fact a error and will probably be fixed.


126

+ Jak_0neill on February 11th, 2014 at 1:25 pm said:

So went on psn store and wanted to download Payday 2, but it still says its $40. Do i download it anyway and hope it doesn’t charge me? Please help me.


129

+ Zion_Fire on February 11th, 2014 at 1:28 pm said:

Its been said several times, don’t download it if it doesn’t say +free. You will be charged otherwise.

DownHllRocket

Do NOT download the game yet. It’ll get fixed soon, hopefully, for now just waste some time watching Netflix or playing Metro or something. Check back regularly here and eventually people will start posting that it’s fixed. This is the exact opposite of last week, which Metro updated to be free and wasn’t listed, where as Payday is listed but isn’t free lol


134

+ DownHillRocket on February 11th, 2014 at 1:33 pm said:

Okay does anyone think itll be fixed by tonight? If not im just gonna play Call of Duty Ghosts instead…
