You can now play Payday 2 as John Wick, actor Keanu Reeves' character from his recently released movie of the same name.

“We continue working with great partners, this time with Lionsgate and their movie John Wick,” Starbreeze Chief Executive Officer Bo Andersson Klint said. “We’ve finally got a real hitman on our team. Being able to play as John Wick in Payday 2 ahead of the movie’s release is a great reward for our loyal Payday 2 community, which reached the final milestone of 1.5 million members in our Payday 2 Steam group before our 12-day Crimefest event.”

In addition to the new playable character, the free DLC includes a Hitman perk deck that gives you the ability to dual wield weapons, a new Chimano Compact pistol, dozens of modifications for said pistol, a new knife, and three new sunglasses, one just for Wick and two that all characters can use.

Finally, if you're planning on seeing John Wick anyway but don't already own Payday 2, consider purchasing your tickets through Fandango, which will come with a free copy of the game via Steam.
