Fake email claims Steam is giving Far Cry 2 away for free

Joystiq and a few others received a faux email earlier in the day saying Valve was giving them Far Cry 2 for free.

The email address appears to originate from Steam and the link looks legitimate, but it goes to a third-party site where heaven only knows what sort of nasty thing will download onto your system.

If you are one of the recipients of this email, don’t fall for it.
