For those not in the loop, the developers recently gave away millions of copies for free for a limited time. Now, you can only buy PAYDAY 2 - Ultimate Edition which includes all the previously released DLC.

If, like me, you had the game previously you can pay a fee to upgrade to the Ultimate Edition at a reduced rate compared to what it would have been before. It's not a bad deal really, I'm missing 22 DLC and they are offering 50% off all the missing DLC with the upgrade deal. That's not bad at all in my opinion.

They will also be offering all DLC in future (besides the Ethan and Hila Character Pack) for free, so that's pretty decent too.

I like what they've done, it just makes sense.

I will look to arrange some games with the community, thanks in part due to a bunch of you likely having it now from the free deal. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

If they've fixed in-game voice chat, I might actually buy this.

They haven't and likely won't. Annoying as that may be, I legitimately never knew anyone who even used it.

The sneaky thing is that this release is tagged with Linux support, but a lot of the DLC (including most heists) are still not available for Linux.

I have the base game (since before it was free), but never played much. I'd be interested in joining a noob (friendly) squad to check it out.

They may not show up in the DLC list in Steam but they are usable in the game, I have everything & it's all there in game.

Yeah everything works, they just haven't tagged some of it correctly.

Honestly, I turn off in-game chat in everything. I use my own clients like Discord, Mumble or whatever. Always works better.

I often do as well, but there was a period of a few weeks where I was regularly kicked from heists for ignoring in-game voice chat. I think it'll mainly only affect stealth missions, where the later missions are basically impossible without proper collaboration and timing.

Firstly, yeah the DLC's list is tagged erroneously. I apparently only own the Official Soundtrack, the John Wick Weapons Pack and the Sydney Character Pack despite the fact I own more than that. 3/18 ain't bad....

Secondly, I'm here all week.

Feel free to add me on steam.
I'm pretty noobish at this as well. Think I only progressed like a level or two on two of the characters.

I would like to see mod_overrides folder working... The re-texture project is a wonderful mod, and Hollywood shootout is great too ^_^
