Xbox 360 owners aren't the only ones who get a free weekend of multiplayer gaming. Steam users are also offered a free gaming weekend... with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The game is available to play for the entire weekend while also being 25% off for those who wish to purchase a copy.
The free weekend will end on Monday, so you'll want to get in on the deal as quickly as possible by simply heading on over to the Steam app page and clicking on the “Play Game” button. That's it.
Oh yeah and you'll likely want to clear up about 55GB so you'll have some room to download and install Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
For gamers wanted to play-test the game before committing to a purchase, there isn't much to lose except for bandwidth. If you're expecting a high-quality, gaming experience well the reviews for the PC rendition of the game are mixed... at best. Majority of the reviews that people agree and have upvoted are negative. The biggest complaints about the game? Well, there are a lot of problems with the game's lack of dedicated servers for PC, which means that there are hackers running rampant in the game. I suppose Valve endowing developers with the ability to perma-ban players could be exercised in good faith under Activision and Sledgehammer Games' watch.
Plenty of reviews where gamers with anywhere between one and 20 hours worth of gameplay have mostly given Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on PC the big 'ole thumbs down. One of the common complaints besides the hackers is the lag. Steam user Airham Gouda methodically broke down the price per hour gameplay measurement for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, writing in the review...
I spent a good 6 hours on the campaign, so [that's] about $10 an hour to play a game. Lets put that in perspective. [I've] put 600 hours into TES: Skyrim, and paid $20 dollars on a steam sale for the entire package. I paid just over 3 cents an hour for Skyrim.
72% of the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare community appear to agree with Gouda.
Of course, if you're not entirely interested in the multiplayer, many of the gamers have commented that this is one of the best looking Call of Duty games to date on PC. There is plenty of praise passed around for Kevin Spacey's performance in the game, but gamers still note that Treyarch's multi-choice campaign in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 was still a heck of a lot better than the campaign in Advanced Warfare. There was also a lot of great feedback on the game's inclusion of exo-suits. The advanced suits enabled gamers to experience Call of Duty in all new ways, making the game play out much closer to the likes of Titanfall than other Call of Duty titles.
You can grab Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare right now, for free, for a limited time, from over on the Steam store.
