Overwatch Free Weekend on PC, PS4, Xbox One: Dates, Start Time, and More
  • Overwatch is available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One
  • It's having a free weekend from May 25 – May 28
  • Starts at 11:30pm on Friday in India

To celebrate the second anniversary of its release, Blizzard's extremely popular multiplayer FPS Overwatch is offering a free weekend to gamers across all platforms.

"From May 25–28, we're calling on all prospective agents: assemble your teams and dive in during the Overwatch Free Weekend on PC, PlayStation 4, or Xbox One," Blizzard wrote in its announcement earlier this month.

What's more, you don't need a PS Plus subscription to play Overwatch, so it's completely free as you long as own the console, of course. Xbox One owners will still need an Xbox Live membership, and PC gamers will need an account on Battle.net, which is owned by Blizzard.

The free weekend for Overwatch starts on Friday, May 25 at 11am PT (that's 11:30pm IST) and ends on Monday, May 28 at 11:59pm PT (that's Tuesday, May 28 at 12:29pm IST). While PS4 and Xbox One users have been able to pre-load since May 22, those on PC will have to wait for the unlock time to start downloading.

You'll have access to Overwatch's full roster of 27 heroes and 18 maps across a selection of game modes, including Quick Play, Play vs AI, Custom Games, and the Arcade. You can level up, earn Loot Boxes, and unlock visual customisations. The only things locked are trophies and achievements.

And should you enjoy it so much that you end up buying it, Blizzard will carry over your progress to the full game, on the platform you choose to play. Overwatch costs Rs. 1,499 on PC, and Rs. 1,999 on PS4 and Xbox One.
