Blizzard Entertainment will be accepting new recruits for Overwatch as it has announced the game will be free to play across all platforms next weekend.
Between November 18 through November 21, Overwatch will be free to play on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One with very few restrictions. Overwatch’s full roster of 22 heroes and 13 maps will be available to play across a variety of modes, including Quick Play, Custom Games, and the most recent Weekly Brawl. Participants will also be able to level up their account and earn Loot Boxes, which of course feature a number of customization options for your Heroes. All progress from the free trial weekend will be transferrable to the full version if you decide to pick it up afterward.
The free period will start on November 18 at 11am PT and come to an end on November 21 at 4pm PT across all gameplay regions. Unfortunately, the Overwatch Free Weekend client won’t be available to preload, so you’re going to have to download all 12GB of it once the free weekend begins. PlayStation 4 owners will need to be PS Plus subscribers, while Xbox One owners will need to have an active Xbox Live Gold account.
