Play it and be amazed! if you like cs you will like this. It is a big download though so get downloading now and yes it is the full game that can be played.

Does this mean after the weekend we can no longer play it without making a purchase?

If you've not yet tried TF2 then go for this deal..it's an awesome first-person team game. It does take practice to master the individual classes but is also quite accessible by the novice (aka.noobs)
It's just had a Pyro expansion pack released last night so expect PYRO heavy servers until the novelty has worn off.
See you over the weekend on [TheFirm] servers
[TF]Ferengi.

That's correct, they seem like they're going to offer a free weekend every time a new large update is released though.

It's somewhere between counter strike and an unreal tournament. Not quite as bouncing off walls and redeemering mad as UT but also without the weapon buying and single life seriousness of counter strike.

You have nine classes to choose from (Scout, Soldier, Demoman, Pyro, Heavy Weapons Guy, Engineer, Medic, Sniper and Spy) and each class has three weapons - a primary, a secondary and a melee weapon. - Engineers can build a sentry gun, a health/ammo dispenser and a teleporter. In terms of weapons they're mostly short range and not instant - any long range instant hit weapons are limited somehow like the sniper's inability to protect himself and the engineer's unmovable sentry.

And yes, do expect lots of pyro's this weekend as the new update has brought new pyro stuff and acheivements to get before it's usable. If you do want to avoid them then keep your distance - even the heavy weapons guy only has a 50/50 chance to beat a pyro at close range. Engineer sentries are good against pyros if they can't get close.
