Overwatch Free Weekend Announced For All Platforms

by Mike Guarino


Overwatch has easily been one of 2016’s biggest successes in gaming, launching earlier this year to critical acclaim and steadily expanding its player base. However, there are still some gamers out there that haven’t taken the plunge yet, and now the developers are giving them a chance to test the waters for free.

Developer Blizzard Entertainment has announced that the game will be getting a free weekend next week, which will run from November 18th through November 21st. PC gamers will be able to hop right in, though a PlayStation Plus subscription will be required for PlayStation 4 players and an Xbox Live Gold subscription will be required for Xbox One players.

This will also be the complete version of the game, with players having access to all of the game’s 22 heroes and 13 maps. To make matters even better, if you decide to purchase the game after taking part in the free weekend then you will be able to carry over all of your progress.

We recently learned that Overwatch was set to be getting custom game support for its Arcade mode, which you can learn more about by clicking right here.
