If you already bought it and enter the key on steam, then valve update you to black for free, is this only for the weekend?

Will the expansion stop working afterwards and leave you with the standard one again?

The expansion will not stop working, the content was released for free.

Actually the download is around 4GB, Steam uses heavy compression.

Does a 2000% sale rise matter if it's free?

Maybe I read it wrong...

Yep, you read it wrong:
"player numbers jumped by more than 2000%"
Because they were playing it for free. They didn't buy it.

4gig DL isn't that bad, but it takes up 10gig of drive space! Biggest program I currently have installed.

UT3 takes up 25 gigs on my PC because of all the custom content :P

I should really clean up that folder...
