Free Overwatch for the weekend? Why not!

If you’re maybe one of the five people in the world that still haven’t tried Blizzard’s hugely successful Overwatch, now’s your chance! A free Overwatch weekend, and it applies to all platforms (PS4, Xbox One, PC).

Starting February 16, and running until February 19, the entire base game will be free, and that means the entire roster of 26 heroes, 17 maps, will be playable in all modes (except Ranked). If you decide to buy the game after trying, you’ll keep any progress earned during the free weekend. The mayhem starts on the 16th at 11 a.m. PT and will end on 11:59 p.m. PT on the 19th.

Note that the free weekend requires PS4 gamers to be a PS Plus member, while Xbox One gamers will need to be signed up for Xbox Live Gold.
