Overwatch Free Play Weekend

November 12, 2017 by WarcraftDaily

In case you haven't had an opportunity to play Blizzard's awesome First Person Shooter Overwatch, now's your chance!  Overwatch will be free to play from November 17th to November 20th across all platforms!


Blizzard is making all 26 heroes and all 16 maps available for play in Quick Play, Custom Games, and the Arcade.  During the free play weekend, you will have the opportunity to level up, earn Loot Boxes, and have access to wide array of customization options.

As an added bonus, if you decide to buy the game after the free weekend, you will keep all of your progress!  Provided of course you purchase the game using the same Blizzard, Playstation Network, or Xbox Live account you used for the free weekend.

Deployment Schedule

The free period will begin at 11:00 AM PT on November 17th, and will run until November 20th at 11:59 PM PT.  We have included a handy guide that will help you figure out when it will launch in your area.  For additional help with time zones, please see timezoneconverter.com.
