For this weekend - or at least from 4th of May to the 9th (six days which Steam which are referring to as the weekend) – PC gamers can get stuck into some Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer absolutely free. All you need to do is download Steam and initiate your preload.
This current offer coincides with the double XP weekend which is currently going on throughout Modern Warfare 2’s PC and PS3 multiplayer arenas. Infinity Ward have also just released their Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Pack which features five additional maps. Two of these (‘Crash’ and ‘Overgrown’) will be familiar for anyone who’s played Call of Duty 4, while the other three (‘Bailout’, ‘Storm’, and ‘Salvage’) are all brand new to the series.
Infinity Ward certainly did a good job upsetting the PC gaming community with their decision not to allow players to create dedicated servers (which essentially meant gamers can't enjoy the traditional freedoms which allowed PC multiplayer to expand beyond the limitations of the Xbox360 and PS3). And while there are plenty of people who harbour an eternal grudge against Infinity Ward, if it you weren’t too bothered by the whole thing, you should get yourself over to Steam.
Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer contains a diverse range of game modes including Free-For-All, Domination, Sabotage, Search & Destroy, Team Deathmatch, Capture The Flag and Demolition. So there’s plenty to get stuck into if you happen to find yourself at a loose end this weekend.
