Activision and Valve today announced that they've hammered out an agreement to get Valve's Steamworks suite of tools onto the PC version of Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2.

"All PC versions of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be powered by Steamworks, providing gamers with auto-updating, anti-cheat technology, Steam Achievements, and the recently introduced Steam Cloud," reads the release.

Modern Warfare 2 PC will come loaded with 50 Steam achievements. As with other Steamworks titles, the game will also be accessible from any computer, with Steam Cloud providing persistent settings.

"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," said Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling.

    I'm sure some people will like their mw2 tied to their steam accounts, but I don't. Understandably, if I bought a game through steam and it needs steam, then I'm fine with that. However, having this game tied to your steam account not matter where you buy it, sucks.

    I'm not going to even bother trying to boycott this. I'm just going to wait untill it becomes the $10 dollar game that it is and buy it then. In the mean time, there are plenty of other games that I'm interesting.

    Thank you IW and Activision for making my game purchasing decisions that much easier.
