Blizzard is a little late to the party on Black Friday 2019 sales announcements, but better late than never we suppose. It just put up a catalog of discounts on a bunch of Blizzard games and services. The big inclusion in it doesn’t require any money though. Blizzard is launching a free trial period for Overwatch that will go through Black Friday weekend and into early December, and it’s available now.

Blizzard announced their Black Friday 2019 sale on November 26, 2019, and the Overwatch free trial along with it. From now until December 4, 2019, players will be able to download and play Overwatch for free on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. During the free trial, nothing seems to be off limits and once the free trial ends, you can pick up the Black Friday deal on Overwatch Standard Edition or Legendary Edition for 25% or 50% off respectively. In order to take part in the free trial, you just need to head over and follow the instructions on the Try Overwatch webpage.

Overwatch's free weekend is definitely the star of Blizzard's Black Friday 2019 sale, but a lot of the Blizzard catalog is featuring some decent deals as well.
