It's time to bring some news of next year's game, and the opportunity that you could be playing it as early as next month!
Cyanide are once again looking for beta testers to test out various aspects of the game for two weeks, from January 4th to January 18th. The beta will involve the testing of the multiplayer mode as well as "Various changes on the AI and Gameplay Features".
If you want to apply, you have until the end of the week (December 27th) to do so - by filling in this google document form. See the thread on the official PCM forum for more detail.
Or if you would prefer to play a version of PCM already released, PCM 2015 is currently on a 60% discount on Steam, with older versions of the game at 80% off. Those deals end on January 4th, when the beta testing begins!
