Starbreeze is offering new players a chance to try the game over the long weekend. This is an increasingly popular way to grow the player base.

Starbreeze is depending on cash earnings from Payday 2 which has continued to maintain its player base. Undoubtedly the players will appreciate the bug fixes which should make the game a lot more enjoyable.

Starbreeze is still looking for a new publisher but so far nothing has been seen from the Swedish media who are following the company close.
