PC gamers will get a free trial of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare over most of the weekend. The latest entry in the very long-running first-person shooter franchise is set in space with the story focused on a battle for the Solar System. However, fans that want to play the campaign mode will be disappointed. #infinite warfare's multiplayer is the only feature that will be free, and it's exclusive to Steam users. The good news is that multiplayer will (mostly) not be limited, and any progress will carry over for those that purchase the full game.

Steam also discounts Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

The free multiplayer mode is part of a Steam sale beginning this weekend.

Its original rendition normally priced at $59.99 is on sale for $29.99. The Digital Legacy Edition is discounted from the standard price of $79.99 to $53.59, which is 33 percent off and includes #Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. Finally, the Digital Legacy Bundle includes all of the above and all DLC content for $74.99. That's 25 percent off the normal $99.99 price of entry.

These sales all continue until next Thursday, March 2nd. The additional game was the biggest highlight of the new Call of Duty release. Fans were excited to see an update to the game that really kicked off the buzz of the multiplayer frenzy, but they were disappointed that the game was locked away in a more expensive bundle. It's currently not available as a standalone release.

Praise wasn't high for PC edition of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

Another reason #Infinity Ward likely has a sale on the game is to make up for the criticism that exists for the product.

Before the release, a YouTube trailer became the second-most disliked video on the platform. Since, the console editions on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have received general praise, but not so much on PC. Both critics and consumers have panned the game, and Steam's recent reviews have been mostly negative -- only 29 percent of them have recommended the game in the past 30 days.

This will give consumers a chance to explore the latest Call of Duty entry before putting their hard-earned money on it. Multiplayer will be fully unlocked with the exception of its highly popular Zombies mode.
