The release date and time countdown for when Payday 3 early access will come out and start is finally here! However, if you wish to play with friends entirely for free, you must wait a few more days for the Xbox Game Pass release date.

Payday 3 is the ultimate bank-robbing simulator. It allows gamers to live out the fantasy of robbing their local bank without the consequences of getting mobbed by the police and locked behind bars for years. It’s a fan-favorite series because of its multiplayer madness, and everyone can recreate the opening to The Dark Knight entirely for free by waiting for the Xbox Game Pass release date.

Payday 3 early access release date

The early access release date for Payday 3 is September 18th.

It is coming to PlayStation, PC, and Xbox. Alas, it is next-gen only, meaning it is not on PS4 or Xbox One, and is therefore restricted to current-gen consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.

Over on PC, you can play through either Steam or the Epic Games store. Either that or Windows where you can play for free if you are subscribed to Xbox Game Pass.

If you have opted for early access, then the time for putting on your clown mask and bagging millions of dollars is here.

What time does Payday 3 early access start?

The release time for when the Payday 3 early access will start is 08:00 PDT, 11:00 EST, and 16:00 BST on September 18th.

It is a simultaneous release across all platforms. These launch hours have been confirmed by the official PAYDAYGame Twitter account.

Of course, in order to play early access, you must pre-order the Silver edition. Below are the prices and pre-order bonuses for each available package (via the PSN store):

Standard edition – £39.99:

Silver edition – £59.99:

Gold edition – £79.99:

When can you play Payday 3 on Xbox Game Pass?

Payday 3 is available to play on Xbox Game Pass from September 21st.

This is the release date for the Standard edition. The Game Pass option lets you play entirely for free, provided you are a subscriber.

If you haven’t already, you can subscribe to Xbox Game Pass for £7.99 per month on PC, and £8.99 per month on console. Consoles also have an Ultimate membership available for £12.99 a month.

September has been a fantastic month for Xbox Game Pass members. The release date for Lies of P on Game Pass is imminent, and it’s been dubbed the spiritual successor to Bloodborne.

And, lest we forget, Game Pass received arguably the biggest game of the year so far with Starfield where NSFW mods are giving Sarah Morgan a voluptuous butt.
