Overwatch Will Be Getting A Free Weekend Soon
Blizzard will be hosting a free weekend for Overwatch very soon. In fact, since we all love free stuff, we’ll get to play it next weekend.
The free event will start on Friday, 22nd September and last until Monday the 25th. Players from all platforms are eligible, so that means PC, PlayStation 4 and XBox One folks as well. It’s also important to note that any progress you achieve will be carried over should you decide to buy the game.
“For this free weekend, we’re making Overwatch’s full roster of 25 heroes and 16 maps 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 a variety of different customization options.”
In addition to that, you can check out the official post here

It’s not often that Overwatch or any other Blizzard game goes free on a weekend. I myself have held off purchasing Overwatch for personal reasons. Coincidentally, Guild Wars 2’s Path of Fire expansion will go live that very same weekend. Nice timing, Blizzard.
