XBL Silver accounts get Modern Warfare 2 free weekend

Microsoft is holding a free Modern Warfare 2 weekend this week, allowing Xbox Live’s Silver members to get their feet wet and try out the shooter’s online offerings without spending a dime on that pesky Gold account.

The free weekend begins on Friday, March 12, at 9am PT/Noon ET and ends on Sunday, March 15, at 9am PT/Noon ET.

As announced just yesterday, the first DLC for the game will be arriving later this month as well, on March 30.
