Blizzard’s Overwatch will be free for a weekend, all characters included

If you're one of the few that still hasn't forked out a few bucks for Blizzard's hit shooter Overwatch, then you should know that a free weekend is coming so that you can finally clear any doubts you may have. Overwatch will be free to play from Friday, November 18 to Monday, November 21, on all platforms: PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

It's also a trial with no content restrictions, as you'll get to play with Overwatch's full roster of 22 heroes and 13 maps in four game modes: Quick Play, Play Vs. AI, Custom Games and Weekly Brawl. You can level up, earn Loot Boxes and unlock different customization options. If you decide to purchase the game later, you'll keep the progress made during the weekend, as long as you do it in the same account. Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus are required to play this free Overwatch weekend on Xbox One or PlayStation 4.
