Payday 2 Deathwish update artwork

Payday 2 will soon be getting an Ultimate Edition that will bundle all of the DLC into one much more manageable, and much cheaper package. The Ultimate Edition will cost $45 at launch, and will be further reduced in price by the amount of DLC you own, so if you're like and you spent way too much money on map packs you'll at least get a sizable discount. The most important thing to keep in mind is that the Ultimate Edition will not completely replace Payday 2, so you don't have to worry about being forced to upgrade unless you care about the already existing DLC.

The reason I mention this in specific is because Overkill is currently giving away Payday 2 for free on Steam. There is absolutely no catch and you don't need to upgrade to the Ultimate Edition down the line in order to keep playing - the game is fully yours! The only thing you need to watch out for is that this promotion will last for "a limited time only", and since Overkill didn't give an end date you might want to grab your copy as soon as possible, or you might just end up missing out.

If you're interested in learning more about the Ultimate Edition and how it will affect you, you'll find the recently posted Developer Update right below. For those of you that prefer the written word, however, you'll find the official info and FAQ over at the website. That said, here's the video:
