PAYDAY 2 now available on SteamOS & Linux, free to try for a few days

The co-op shooter PAYDAY 2 is now officially available on SteamOS & Linux, yet another popular game!

I’ve been waiting on this one as I am keen to play it to see what the fuss is all about. Being the bad guy is always more interesting than being forced to be the hero of everything most of the time.

It’s a shame it got review-bombed after they made some changes recently, but I can’t say if they are good or bad since it has only just arrived for us.

We will have our thoughts and a port report up as soon as we can. We had no advanced warning, so it will take time.

It’s also on sale, so now is a great time to check it out! I picked up the GOTY edition myself, and I will livestream it tonight. I will livestream in on my personal Twitch here soon.

About the game
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 DC 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 big league cyber-crime or emptying out major bank vaults for that epic PAYDAY. While in DC, why not participate in the local community, and run a few political errands?

Up to four friends co-operate on the hits, and as the crew progresses the jobs become bigger, better and more rewarding. Along with earning more money and becoming a legendary criminal comes a new character customization and crafting system that lets crews build and customize their own guns and gear.

I hate games without campaign (except "CS: GO", which has the nostalgia factor).
But it is good to see more games coming.

I will finally be able to remove this from Windows tonight. Yes!

I really don't get DLC hate. It's how developers are able to keep games going for so long. Most games have DLC now and the GOTY edition is cheap.

Will livestream when i have eaten and got to grips with it.

Hm seems it was already in my collection. Must have been included in some bundle or something.

Downloading now!

Who ported this?

I thought that the GOTY Edition would be the whole game but I guess I was wrong...

Total 30 Dlc's ---> 30 Euro +

GOTY Edition has 14 DLC's plus the game --> 11 Euro +

However dlcs doesn't have the tux icon.

So are all these DLC's required :o?

Lucky You, I got the first for free, but no port in sight.

Yeah, I have the same question - does the Linux version support the GoTY DLC packages, since they don't have the tux icon? I guess we'll find out when TheBoss livestreams later.

Trying to mess with the settings.

The multi-monitor support is a bit pants.

It displays on the 4K monitor I have in a tiny 1080p section of the screen, the rest is black. No option to go higher than 1920x1080 resolution.
