Play Overwatch for Free Next Weekend

Blizzard announces the opportunity to play Overwatch for free next weekend on Windows or consoles. Word is this will begin on Friday the 18th and run through Sunday. This will offer full access to all the game's heroes, maps, and progression rewards, and those who choose to then purchase the game will get to keep all their progress and unlocks. This will require PlayStation 4 owners to have a PlayStation Plus membership, Xbox One owners to have an Xbox Live Gold membership, and Windows users to have a Battle.net account. Here's a deployment schedule and a free weekend FAQ. Here's the deal:

Attention, recruits! If you haven't already had the opportunity to suit up and save the world as one of Overwatch's heroes, now's your chance.

From November 18–21, we're putting out the call to any prospective agents: assemble your team and dive in during the Overwatch Free Weekend on PC, PlayStation 4, or Xbox One!

For this free weekend, we're making Overwatch's full roster of 22 heroes and 13 maps available for play in a variety of modes, including Quick Play, Custom Games, and the latest Weekly Brawl. Players will also have the ability to level up, earn Loot Boxes, and unlock a variety of different customization options.

(Plus, if you decide to purchase a copy of Overwatch after test driving the game, you'll get to keep any progress that you made during the weekend—just be sure to use the same Battle.net, Xbox Live or Sony Entertainment account that you played on.)
