Steamworks to power PC version of Modern Warfare 2

Activision's first-person shooter to ship with Steam tools

Activision has announced that the PC version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will ship with Valve's Steamworks technology.

Steamworks will provide auto-updating, anti-cheat technology, Achievements and the recently introduced Steam Cloud.

"Steamworks will make it possible for us to have a closer connection to our fans, and enable us to support our community much more than ever before," offered Infinity Ward's Rob Bowling

"Steam is the hands down leader in offering a community focused experience on PC and the inclusion of Steamworks has allowed us to deliver the most feature-rich PC version to ever come from Infinity Ward, which at the end of the day will mean the most to our fans."

The PC version of Modern Warfare has been heavily criticised by the PC gaming community, with a petition of over 158,000 opposed to propriety matchmaking service IWNet instead of dedicated servers.
