Blizzard confirms a new free play weekend - Overwatch

Another chance to try Overwatch before you buy.

Blizzard announced last night that there will be a new free weekend on Overwatch for all platforms, running from May 26th-29th. The full roster of heroes and maps will be available to try out in a variety of game modes, and if you decide to go out and buy the game your progress will carry over too.

The Overwatch free weekend begins officially on May 26 at 11:00 PT and ends on May 29 at 23:59 PT. That’s a 19:00 BST start for us in the UK, and a 07:59 end.

For the full details, check out the official blog post that carries the announcement.
