Call of Duty: Ghosts gets free Steam weekend

Call of Duty Ghosts - 09
Raw excitement in its natural colour: brown.

Call of Duty: Ghosts is free to play on Steam, for this weekend only. If you fancy trying out the slightly rubbish manshooter for yourself, you can do so!

In case you’re new to the whole “free Steam weekend” thing, it’s not a case of “download and it’s yours forever” – it’s just free to play until the end of the weekend, when it will magically re-lock itself. Of course, it’s also 50% off, so if you actually enjoy horribly optimised and entirely phoned-in messes then you can grab it for only £19.99. This appears to coincide with a Double XP weekend, too, if that’s the sort of thing that matters to you.

This weekend also marks a Ubisoft sale on Steam, so if you fancy spending £20 on good games, you could instead pick up Rayman Origins for £6.49, or Rayman Legends for £16.24, or Splinter Cell: Blacklist for £19.49, or all sorts of other things. The Ubisoft sale is offering new deals each day, though, so I’m guessing those particular titles will be cheaper a little later on in the weekend. You may want to hold off to see if they’re picked for a further discount, as today’s Super Special Deal is the Might & Magic series.

    Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
