Gamers in Germany are getting a little post-Christmas gift this weekend, as Valve is letting them experience the PC gaming goodness of 2007 for free. During the Team Fortress 2 Free Weekend, offered exclusively to German gamers via Steam, gamers can download and play Team Fortress 2 for free from January 4-6.
The Free Weekend is open to all gamers in Germany. To participate, simply install the Steam client and get busy downloading. Team Fortress 2 is available now for pre-loading, so players can have everything installed and ready to play the moment the Free Weekend begins on Friday.
The Team Fortress 2 Free Weekend in Germany will conclude on Sunday (January 6), and no purchase is required to participate in the free weekend.
