For those who haven’t yet had the opportunity to suit up and save the world as one of the heroes of Overwatch, the time is near.
From 19:00 GMT on Friday, February 16 to 8:00 GMT on Tuesday, February 20, Blizzard is calling on all prospective agents to assemble their teams and dive in during the Overwatch Free Weekend on PC, PlayStation 4, or Xbox One. (Please note that a PlayStation or Xbox subscription is required to play on these platforms.)
During this free weekend, Overwatch’s full roster of 26 heroes and 17 maps will be 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 several customization options.
Those who decide to purchase Overwatch after test driving the game will get to keep any progress made during the weekend—as long as they use the same Blizzard, Sony Entertainment, or Xbox Live account that they played on.
More information can be found on the official Overwatch blog.
Seriously, if you haven’t at least tried Overwatch, you don’t have any excuse not to now.
