    All gamers in Germany may experience what many are calling the best multiplayer game of 2007 during the Team Fortress 2 Free Weekend, offered exclusively to German gamers via Steam January 4th through 6th. The Free Weekend is open to all gamers in Germany during the event. To participate, simply visit steamgames.com and install the free client. To maximize the free play time, 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, January 4. 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. Team Fortress 2 is one of three new games introduced in The Orange Box, a unique collection of new critically acclaimed games from Valve available for the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360 that is winning Game of the Year awards across the world.

    They do this with a lot of their games every once in awhile. Great chance to try a game before you buy it.

    i don't really understand why there are ppl who still don't have the orange box.
    i mean, there's absolutely _nothing_ you can do wrong about buying it. portal alone is worth the money, team fortress 2 absolutely rocks if you are into multiplayer fps', and episode 2 isn't bad either. so just go ahead and buy the stuff...

    They should just let any1 try it, why restrict it to Germany? It could bump sales of the Orange Box... I might of bought if I had a change to sample it.
