Overwatch Free Weekend All Platforms – November 19-22

November 10, 2016

To celebrate the success of BlizzCon 2016 and announcements regarding Overwatch, Blizzard today revealed that there will be an Overwatch free weekend later this month for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. The full roster of 22 heroes and all 13 maps will be available to try out in Quick Play mode, custom games and the current Weekly Brawl event. All progress you make during the free weekend will be saved to your profile too, meaning leveling up, loot boxes and customisation options will all be saved for if you end up buying Overwatch at a later date.

Check out the full deployment schedule below:

The Overwatch Free Weekend will run from November 18–21. PlayStation 4 owners with a PlayStation Plus membership, Xbox One owners with an Xbox Live Gold membership, and Windows PC users with a Battle.net account will be able to download and play Overwatch for FREE during this period—no special keys or sign-up codes needed!

The free period will begin on November 18 at 11 a.m. PT (18:00 UTC) and end on November 21 at 4:00 p.m. PT (23:00 UTC) in all gameplay regions. If you’d like to see when the weekend will go live in your region, check out the reference guides below.
