MW3 free weekend for PC players on Steam

By Updated on

If you have just finished enjoying your free taster of the Diablo III beta and are looking for your next free gaming fix on PC, we have some good news for you. Activision has just announced that they’ll be holding another one of their free weekends and it means that Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer will be completely free to play.

It’s obviously not the first time that such an event has been staged of course, but it definitely is a rare sighting of generosity from Activision that you all should take advantage of.

Despite the game’s criticism, it still remains immensely popular with both PC and console gamers and it’s a shame that Activision can’t put a free trial of multiplayer up on the PS Store and Xbox Live marketplace. We’ve seen other developers like Ubisoft offer free trials of games like Assassin’s Creed, and it would be a great way for Activision to ignite new interest in the console version of the game.

For those planning to take part in the free weekend, it will commence on Thursday April 26 at 6pm UK time, 10am Pacific Time for those of you in the US. There’s no set time on when the free multiplayer will end, but we’re guessing that Valve will shut it off sometime on Monday or late Sunday evening.

This is completely free, so there can be no complaints really. Activision are on the brink of revealing their next Call of Duty game on May 1st, and information on the latest teasers for the game can be seen here. Tell us – are there any PC users out there who are happily playing MW3 ahead of BF3?

    Playing but not happily.  PC users seem to be the b@$t@^d stepchildren of Activision.  No DLC, rampant hackers, little communication.

      I agree, I bought the pc game when it came out but this is the last game I will purchase.  the multiplayer is rampant with hackers and the anti-hack is a joke.
