Moments ago, Blizzard Entertainment announced an Overwatch Free Weekend event for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. The free weekend event starts on November 18th at 11AM PT and concludes on November 21st at 4PM PT.
Players who choose to participate in the free weekend event, will have access to all 22 Overwatch heroes and will be able to play on 13 different maps. Players will be able to play in game modes like Quick Play, Custom Games and the Weekly Brawl. Sadly, the free weekend event will not include Overwatch’s latest hero, Sombra, which Blizzard revealed last week.
During the Overwatch free weekend event, players will be able to level up, earn loot boxes and unlock items, which will allow them to customize their heroes. Players will be able to keep their progress if they purchase a copy of Overwatch on the platform they played the free weekend event on.
Players who are willing to take part in the free weekend event will have to download a 12GB file in order to play the game. Console users will have to have a PlayStation Plus subscription or a Xbox Live Gold membership in order to play the free weekend event.
For the PS4, players will have to search ‘Overwatch Free Weekend’ in the PlayStation Store to download Overwatch while the Xbox One users have to search ‘Overwatch: Origins Edition’ in the Xbox One Store.
The Overwatch Free Weekend event kicks off on November 18th and concludes on November 21st and will be available for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
