Play Modern Warfare 2 MP For Free This Weekend

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 48 comments

Looking for something cheap to do this weekend? Here's your ticket.

If you don't already own Modern Warfare 2, then this weekend you're treated to a chance to play the latest Infinity Ward war shooter for free.

Starting Thursday, April 8, gamers on Steam can download and play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer free of charge during a special Free Weekend promotion. Even though the wonderful freeness hasn't started yet, those who want to get in as early as possible can begin pre-loading now.

For the rest of you who have been playing MW2 since last year… well, be prepared for an influx of newbies this weekend. It could be like shooting fish in a barrel.

Check it out on Steam here.

    I wanna see if it is worth the purchase even without dedicated servers. I guess that's the plan behind the promotion.

    I guess tech forums will soon be swamped with Strict NAT threads.

    It says "Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual"

    Apparently whoever is responsible has a sense of humor.

    And that last comment is why I hate MW the original and will never, ever pay for 2. I bought 1 and was constantly frustrated with tools who lurk in a corner, get 10 kills, then get a heli and keep on going. Being a giant douche should not win you the game.

    hackers, cheaters, laggy IWnet, non working VAC that is not banning anymore, map rotation that does not work, etc etc. Makes sense that they have a free weekend. Paying players are leaving this game like rats leaving a sinking ship and potential players who actually read reviews avoid this game like the plague. Enjoy the download and prepare to be headshot......a lot.

    Free is the price I would pay for this disappointment of a game. However, I'd rather spend my time playing BF:BC2 instead.

    I got this game as a gift for christmas on steam, but I haven't played it for about 2 months. It's honestly not worth it. And just a word of warning to those of you who have not played online yet. You will most likely get lit up, since everyone knows the maps inside and out and will camp in some obscure corner, or ran around with commando and marathon perks on. What a great game (sarcasm)

    I've been playing BC2 since early March and haven't looked back once :)
