This new upcoming free DLC is the newest addition to the string of DLC Heists that the developers have been handing out, including updates which have introduced new game difficulties – like the Death Wish Update. These updates have brought about loads of new content, including new masks, weapons and achievements.

Payday 2 is a four player Co-Op game that lets players don the masks of the original Payday crew, Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf and Chains – as they descend on Washington DC for an epic crime spree.

Players can perform plenty of heists focusing on things from mere convenience stores – to mighty bank vaults. The objective of the game, is, of course making a terrific crew with plenty of awesome weapons and a ton of money.

The free DLC – Payday 2: Election day releases tomorrow on steam, the PS3 and the Xbox 360.
