Here's How to Play Overwatch For Free This Weekend
All 28 heroes and 18 maps are free-to-play! Here's how.
If you've seen people talk about Overwatch but aren't really sure what all the fuss is about, here's so good news: there's a free trial on PC this weekend.
From July 26 to July 30 you can jump in the game and play with any of Overwatch's incredible 28 heroes and yes, that includes newbie, Wrecking Ball!
"For this free weekend, we're making Overwatch's full roster of 28 heroes—including Wrecking Ball—and 18 maps available for play in a variety of modes, including Quick Play, Custom Games, and the Arcade," says Blizzard. "Players will also be able to level up, earn Loot Boxes, and unlock a variety of different customization options for their heroes."
Best of all, if you really enjoy yourself and fancy picking up the full game afterward, you can keep any progress you make throughout your freebie weekend providing you use the same Blizzard account that you played on.
The free period starts at 7pm UK time on July 26, 2018 but before you jump in, make sure you register for a Blizzard account through the Overwatch free weekend client.
In May, Blizzard has released a very special, limited edition skin for Overwatch's Mercy in order to raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. 100 percent of the proceeds from the $15/£13 limited edition character skin went to the charity and raised a staggering $12.7 million.
