John Wick, the titular character of Keanu Reeves’ upcoming action flick, is coming to Payday 2 in a free DLC pack releasing tomorrow. The announcement comes after Overkill Software, developer of Payday 2’s DLC, reached its goal of 1.5 million Steam group members.

The DLC pack includes John Wick as a playable character, the Hitman perk system (including new features like Akimbo, which gives players the ability to dual-wield weapons), a new pistol and knife weapon, and three sunglasses customizations. At 1.5 million members, the Payday 2 Steam group is the largest community group on the service.

Continuing the promotion, moviegoers who pre-order tickets to John Wick through Fandango tomorrow will receive a free Steam download code for Payday 2. The John Wick DLC for Payday 2 is out tomorrow at no cost to Steam users.
