The free weekend will start on November 17th and conclude on November 20th. All heroes and maps will be playable.
Blizzard Entertainment, as it is wont to do, has announced another free weekend for Overwatch. It will start on November 17th at 11 AM PT and last till November 20th, 11:59 PM PT for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
The interesting part is how Blizzard mentioned 26 heroes and 16 maps being playable so perhaps Blizzard World and new Support hero Moira will be available as well. Players can still engage in Quick Play, Custom Games and Arcade, earning loot boxes and cosmetics during their free play time. It’s expected that Competitive Play won’t be available to new players joining in the free weekend but we’ll have to wait and see.
Furthermore, any progress made once the free period is over will carry into the full game if you purchase it. Overwatch’s Moira is also currently available on the Public Test Realm for PC players so you can try out her abilities on there before the free weekend starts.
