The massively popular hero first person shooter Overwatch will be available to play for free this weekend across all platforms, Blizzard has announced.
Attention, recruits! If you haven’t already had the opportunity to suit up and save the world as one of the heroes of Overwatch, now’s your chance.
From February 16–19, we’re calling on all prospective agents: assemble your teams and dive in during the Overwatch Free Weekend on PC, PlayStation 4, or Xbox One!
During this free weekend, we’re making Overwatch’s full roster of 26 heroes and 17 maps available for play in a variety of modes, including Quick Play, Custom Games, and the Arcade. Players will also have the ability to level up, earn loot boxes, and unlock a variety of different customization options.
If players decide to purchase Overwatch after test driving the game, they’ll get to keep any progress made during the weekend—as long as they use the same Blizzard, Xbox Live, or Sony Entertainment account that they played on.
If you don’t own the game, be sure to take it for a spin this weekend. It’s not the first Free Weekend Overwatch has had, but these kind of free weekends are always nice to see, especially for online games that thrive on an expanding community.
