Overwatch getting a free weekend for PS4 and Xbox One

All heroes and maps will be free to try.


If you are one of the few who have not tried Overwatch yet, Blizzard is giving you a chance with a free weekend from September 9-12.

As part of the event, all 22 heroes, 13 maps and the four game modes will be available. Quick Play, Custom Game, Play vs. AI and Weekly Brawl will also be open. There are no restrictions on PS4 players, but you must have Xbox Gold to participate. Downloads will start on September 9 at 11 a.m. PT / 2 p.m. ET, with free play ending on September 12 at 4 p.m. PT / 7 p.m. ET.

The good news is that if you enjoy the game and decide to purchase the Origins edition, all progress and stats will be saved. But trophies and achievements will be disabled.

For PlayStation 4, the download size is around 9GB. For Xbox One, its about 15GB.
