That’s right folks, Blizzard’s brilliantOverwatch will be free to play on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 all throughout next weekend. From 9-12 September, those of you who haven’t already bought it will gain access to the full game, with all the heroes and maps currently on offer. You’ll also be able to level up and unlock things, and if you decide you like Overwatch enough to buy it (which you probably will), your progress will carry over into the paid version.
PS4 players won’t need an active PS Plus subscription to participate, but XBO owners will need an active Xbox LIVE Gold sub in order to join the fun. Full details here.
