Play Modern Warfare 2 MP For Free This Weekend

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.
