It’s about time Blizzard has another one of these. Another Overwatch free weekend is on its way! You may have seen these events come around in the past and just ignored it, but not this time! If you’re new to this, here’s the rundown:
Overwatch will be made free-to-play but only from 26-30 July. This event will be available on all platforms (PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One). If you’re wondering what Overwatch is about then now’s your chance to decide if this game is worth your time!
If you’re on PC, you’ll need a Battle.net account in order to install the game. As for PlayStation 4 players, an active PS Plus membership is required. Xbox One players, you’ll need an Xbox Live Gold membership. But that’s all you need. There will be no special access codes. Just hit that install button, download the game and play! Easy game, easy life.

If you create a free account during the free weekend and decide to get the game, the levels and skins you attained on your free account will be maintained through the upgrade. There are no roster or map restrictions for free players. You can play all the champions (yes, this includes Wrecking Ball), all the maps, and all the game modes EXCEPT the Competitive Mode.
Set a reminder, mark your calendars! You definitely don’t want to miss out on this opportunity because as I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again; The game is addictive. Once you start, you may not want to stop. Start your Overwatch journey! For more information, check out the official blizzard website. Enjoy your free weekend!
