Post Day of Defeat Source for free this weekend

Link: http://www.steampowered.com/index.ph...dodFreeWeekend


info at: http://www.gamearena.com.au/news/read/3498620

Day of Defeat offers an intense brand of online gameplay set in the WWII European Theatre of Operations. Players assume the role of light/assault/heavy infantry, sniper or machine-gunner class, and missions are based on historical operations. Day of Defeat: Source features enhanced graphics and sounds design to leverage the power of Source, Valve's new engine technology.

Yes folks, DODS has a free trial this weekend. YEEHAW

Do yourselves a favour and check it out.
You'll have to d/l Steam, setup an account and that's it (basically).
Visit Steampowered.com to pre-load the game and be set to play at 12:00 pm (noon) PST on Friday (6am? Sat morn here), when the Free Weekend begins. Join the ranks as Axis or Allies troops located in Western Europe during the height of the war in 1944.

Any probs/questions ask.

Looks interesting and if it use the same Havok physics engine as HL2 I'll be very impressed. I'll give it a whirl.

As far as I'm aware, it's the same game I'm running so you should be able to jump on any DODS server here in Oz or throughout the globe.
Apart from that, we (CSS ppl) may be running a server over the weekend with just DODS on it.
