Blizzard is kicking things into high gear this summer, giving players a free chance to try out Overwatch one more time. Start on July 26 and running to July 30, players can dive into Overwatch for free on PC and try out the game.
During the free weekend players will have open access to all 28 of the game’s unique heroes—including Wrecking Ball—as well as 18 maps for them to play in mods like Custom Games, Arcade, and Quick Play. On top of this, you can also level up, unlock customization options, and earn Loot Boxes as much as you want.
This isn’t the first time that Blizzard has sent the beloved competitive FPS game to the free to play marketplace, and it probably won’t be the last. Players who dive into the game between July 26-July 30 will get to keep any progress they make if they decide to purchase the full game at any point down the line.
In order to get into the free weekend, players will simply need to log in during the event running from July 26-July 30. The free period kicks off at 11AM PDT on July 26 and will come to a close at 11:59PM PDT on July 30. If you’re not sure when the game unlocks in your area, check out this handy time table over on the Overwatch website.
The free weekend will only be available to PC players in the Americas, Europe, and Asia regions (excluding Korea). Unfortunately, people in any other areas won’t be able to take part in the free to play weekend kicking off on July 26.
This is a great time to give Overwatch a try if you haven’t already, and also a really good time for long-time players who want to get back into the action but might feel a little rusty. Make sure you don’t miss out on the action and dive into one of the most highly praised FPS games currently available.
