PayDay 2 is 20% Off on Release Day

Apparently committing in-game bank robberies with strangers and friends is the best way to develop a thriving gaming community.

If you're up for a co-op crime spree, today's release Payday 2 might fit the bill - especially if you're looking for a helpful community to get you started on various heist missions. Although you can't grab a "five finger discount" there are still substantial savings to be had. The Steam-activated PC download version is priced at $29.99, but if you shop at the UK-based Green Man Gaming, there's a 20% off coupon code dropping the price to $24. The general consensus thus far from critics is positive, netting a strong 80/100 Metascore.

The other big title launching today is the strategy conquest simulator Europa Universalis IV. Unlike Payday 2, you won't be able to use GMG's 20% off coupon here, but GameFly's PC download department has their own August-themed coupon, also worth 20% off on select titles. That'll drop EU4 down from $39.99 to $31.99 - a decent $8 savings off what everyone else is charging.
