Play Overwatch for free this weekend, November 18-21

Are you yet to try Blizzard’s runaway hit hero shooter, Overwatch? Well this weekend’s for you! Blizzard is once again having a free weekend for Overwatch from November 18 to November 21, 2017.

Much like previous Overwatch free weekends, this one will have all 26 heroes and 16 maps available in a variety of game modes. Yes, you read that right, 26 heroes will be unlocked for play; that means the latest Overwatch hero Moira will be playable in the main servers by that time!

The game modes Quick Play, Custom, and Arcade are unlocked for the free weekend; Competitive mode will be locked though. What isn’t locked is Loot Boxes, as free-to-play accounts can level up and earn Loot Boxes. Best part is that players who decide to buy the game after the weekend will retain their progress, provided of course that they use the same account.

Deployment times for the Overwatch Free Weekend differs from each country. In the Philippines, the Free Weekend will start on November 18 at 3:00 am, and will end on November 21 at 3:59 pm.

To download Overwatch, you will need Battle.net account for those on PC, and a PlayStation Plus/Xbox Live Gold membership for those on consoles (PS4/XBOX).
