with the new firepower pack, is there a possibility of a free weekend coming as well?

I just upgraded to windows 7 but I am still on the fence about this game.

They did one for the last DLC release. Don't see why they wouldn't, last free weekend was a blast.

It was indeed very fun. If they do a free weekend, it will be a chance for me to get my K/D up and rank up.(because going 38/0 is just that fun) It would also be a way for FM to show everyone that this game has changed from what they thought before. A smart marketing ploy, but the masses are very unpredictable.

Pretty much becoming a new game and should - like a thread further down - have the ratings/reviews re-done for the Moonrise -> Firepower -> Shattered Horizon Game :P

The original reviews weighed heavily on the 4 map limit etc etc.

I hope they have a free weekend with the release of Firepower DLC, I have quite a few friends that are wanting to try this game though a few of them cant even run it at the moment due to old computers and running XP.

I really think Free weekend with this firepower pack would be success, but only if we can have enough servers that everyone can play.

I just loved to see new faces in-game and have fun with them, now with new guns funtime is multiplied.

As i remember, reviewers complained about missing guns and missing maps, now both are here:D

any word on this?

Are there guest passes or something like that?

I can say that there won't be a free weekend this weekend - some other game is having theirs.

didn't there used to be guest passes for this game? are they all expired?

$15 makes it enticing, but being able to try the game would definitely help.

Yeah, you can give us back the "Invites" rather than a Free Weekend. So we can invite people who would like try it and, if they like it, they can buy it at $15, thanks to the offer. If they have to wait till a "Free Weekend" they will likely lose the 25% off.

I never was able to use my invites from last time. Hopefully over the summer people will have more time to play this. I also noticed that the servers were EXTREMELY full last time there was a free weekend. Handing out invites lets you slowly introduce new players to the game.

This isn't to say a free weekend won't be helpful, but invites seem to be underused with most games

New players who buy the game still get guest passes. I think the Steam standard is that they expire if unused after 30 days. The places to ask for or give out guest passes are here:

I didn't realize they expire after 30 days otherwise I would have gotten on using them more.

Hasn't Modern Warefare been on sale for like the past month on steam and didn't it have a free weekend a few weeks ago?

yes it had, and that's why it baffles me that they have another free weekend so soon after the previous one...


MW2 is crap though so I have no intentions on using this free weekend stuff to play it at all.


C'mon MW2, show sum looooooooooove for SH!

SH needs a full 72 hour free weekend. Playerbase needs more expansion.
