Call of Duty: Ghosts will be free to play this weekend on Steam, Infinity Ward and Valve have announced.

From now until Sunday you'll be able to access the game's popular multiplayer mode at no cost, and if you want to carry on playing beyond the weekend the Steam price has been halved to only £19.99.

This weekend is a great time for PC gamers to get started as Infinity Ward has also confirmed Double XP for all platforms.

"February's the shortest month of the year, so you'd better make the most of the limited time to earn your next Prestige. Luckily, we're turning on Double XP this weekend for all platforms," explained the studio.

All players will earn twice as much XP on Multiplayer and Squads accomplishments.
