Choo choo, kiddies; the Payday 2 Hype Train is on the move.


Payday 2 developer Overkill Software has launched a community event called the Hype Train.

By buying Payday 2 or any DLC between now and March 12, including pre-orders for the Overkill and Completely Overkill packs, players earn gallons of “Hype Fuel”.

Fuel is needed to push the Hype Train to new stations, with each station representing a new, free piece of content that will be released for free to all players – regardless of what DLC they own – during the upcoming Spring Break event.

If you have headphones plugged in I strongly recommend you go have a look at the promotional website for this event, because it caused me a great deal of amusement. Choo chooooooooooo!

Here’s a trailer for the upcoming DLC, which releases on March 12 and is available for pre-order now:
