Modern Warfare 3 shoots onto Steam for free

Weekend of weaponry anyone?

Boost IT visibility and business value

Activision is offering Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 completely free on Steam this weekend, with access to the full range of multiplayer features on show.

While the game hardly struggles for numbers, with over 6.5m MW3 copies shifted in the first 24 hours on sale, the move will allow unconvinced gamers a chance to load their weapons and join in with the addictive multiplayer carnage.

Modern Warfare 3

Free weekend in Paris?

Of course, Activision hopes you'll become hooked and reach into your pocket when free access expires on Monday.

Either way, if you're a PC user, you have a few days of free battle ahead should you wish to jump on board. Jump on Steam, download and fire away.
