Payday 3: Creating an Account to Play
If you want to fully enjoy Payday 3 and access exclusive content like items, weapons, and more, you’ll need to create an account. This guide will walk you through the process of setting up your account so you can dive into the heist shooter and earn exciting rewards.
How to Create an Account
Regardless of the platform you’re on, the steps to create an account are the same:
- Go to Starbreeze Neubla, either through Payday 3 or directly on the website.
- If you don’t have an account with Starbreeze, click on “sign up here” at the bottom of the page.
- Once you’ve created an account, select your platform at the top of the screen and log into your profile.
- Look for the “Linked Accounts” tab on the left-hand bar to link your Payday 3 account.
- On the Linked Accounts page, click on the “add link” button at the bottom to open a window displaying the platforms you can link to.
- Select the platform you want to link and sign in to that platform.
- After linking your account, return to the game and sign in. You should now be able to log in.
