If you never played Overwatch and want to see why the game is so popular, you can try it starting November 18th-21st!
If you’ve been sat there wondering what on Earth a “Gremlin D.Va” is or why everyone suddenly thinks the word “boop” is so funny, Blizzard have decided to help. Overwatch will be totally free to play from Friday, November 18 through Monday, November 21. That includes every aspect of the game, from the full roster of heroes through all the maps and modes.
To get it all set up on PC, you’ve just got to make a account and download the app. Once start time hits the buy button on the Overwatch panel will be replaced by install. Full instructions for the console versions are in the announcement post.
As for what’s available, the FAQ details that it’s everything currently in the live game. Interestingly, that limits it to no Sombra and no Arcade – the items currently in testing on the Overwatch PTR.
For what’s coming next to the game, see our Overwatch patch 1.5 rundown.
It all kicks off at 11am PST, November 18 and ends at 4pm PST, November 21. Here’s when that is in various other timezones:
- 19:00 GMT, Nov 18 to 00:00 GMT, Nov 22
- 20:00 CET, Nov 18 to 01:00 CET, Nov 22
