Blizzard is letting Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners a chance to play nearly the full version of its hit team shooter Overwatch for free from September 9-12.


Blizzard stated:

For this free weekend, we're making Overwatch's full roster of 22 heroes and 13 maps available for play in a variety of modes, including Quick Play, Custom Games, and the latest Weekly Brawl. You'll also be able to level up, earn Loot Boxes, and unlock different customization options via the Hero Gallery. If you like what you see and decide to buy Overwatch: Origins Edition, you'll also get to keep whatever progress you made during the weekend.

The free play period will last from 2 p.m. Eastern time on September 9 to 7 p.m. Eastern time on September 12. Xbox One owners will need a paid Xbox Live Gold subscription to play the game.
