Blizzard has just announced through the Overwatch Twitter account that the team-based FPS will be free to play this weekend, February 17 to 20 (converted to Philippine Time).
Overwatch gets free weekends a couple of times throughout the year, so if you’re not taking the plunge now, it might be a while before you get to do it again. For reference, the last free weekend was in November of last year.
The game will be free to play on all platforms, which are PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Crossplay between platforms however, is not natively supported. Also, even if a free weekend player somehow reaches level 25 (the requirement to play ranked), they will not be able to play ranked mode. The upside here though is that should you decide to buy the game, your progress from free weekend will be carried over.
Converted to local time (GMT+8), Overwatch free weekend starts February 17, 3:00 AM, and ends February 20, 3:59 PM. Console players may get the game at the PlayStation Store or Xbox One Store (PlayStation Plus/ Xbox Live Gold membership required), while PC players may get the game through the Battle.net desktop app.
