Blizzard has announced that Overwatch‘s next free weekend will take place November 17th-20th on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
During the free weekend, players on all platforms will be able to download and play the game for free. There will be no restrictions, with players able to access the game’s 26 characters, 16 maps, and numerous modes, including Quick Play, Custom Games, and the Arcade. Players can also level up, earn Loot Boxes, and unlock a variety of different customization options. All progress made during the trial can be carried over to the full game.
The interesting part of this announcement is the mention of Overwatch‘s 26 characters. The game currently has 25 available characters, with the 26th character, Moira, only being available on the PC’s test server. This means that Moira should be live on all platforms before this free weekend begins on November 17th.
Moira was unveiled during BlizzCon and is a support character who wields two Biotic Orbs, allowing her to heal allies with one and sap enemies’ health with the other.
Overwatch is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
