Payday 2 is a free game in August, giving you the perfect chance to get ready for the upcoming Payday 3 release date. The co-op heist shooter is just one of the freebies you can claim as a Prime Gaming member throughout August, with Star Wars and Farming Simulator all joining Payday 2 on the table. There’s also plenty of in-game items, including Diablo 4 Prime gaming rewards, so read on for the full list.

If you’ve still never played Payday 2, it’s one of the best heist games around – it really shines when you can pull together a crew of like-minded friends to help you infiltrate everything from banks to clubs in search of as much loot and cash as you can get your hands on. If you’re a solo player, however, there’s still a ton to enjoy in Payday 2, as the stealth options give you a very viable alternative to going loud.

Elsewhere, you can grab Farming Simulator 19, one of the most relaxing games around, as well as Star Wars The Force Unleashed 2. While it might not quite stand up alongside its predecessor among the best Star Wars games, Force Unleashed 2 is still a healthy dose of chaotic, force-sensitive fun that’ll see you tormenting all manner of stormtroopers and other unfortunate souls with your telekinetic abilities.

Among the Prime gaming rewards are some tier skips to help you ahead in the Diablo 4 battle pass, along with free Honkai Rail Stellar Jade, some League of Legends skins, free Hearthstone card packs, 400,000 Dead by Daylight Bloodpoints, and goodies for a number of big MMOs including World of Warcraft, Guild Wars 2, RuneScape, and Black Desert Online.
