Blizzard Announces Another Free Weekend for Overwatch

Blizzard has announced yet another free weekend for its hit multiplayer shooter, Overwatch, which will kick off on Friday, November 17.

Available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, the free trial will include the game’s full roster of 26 heroes and 16 maps alongside a variety of modes including Quick Play, Arcade, and custom games. You’ll be able to level up, earn loot boxes, and unlock customization options. Those who wish to purchase the game after the free trial is over will be able to retain their progress provided they stick to the same account that they used to play.
