Overwatch Will Be Free To Play This Weekend!

If you still haven’t picked up Overwatch, this is yet another option for you to play it for free on the Xbox One, PS4, and PC. Overwatch will be having a free to play option this weekend from February 16th until February 19th.

“The free trial kicks off at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET and will feature all of Overwatch’s 26 heroes and 16 maps. Players will also be able to try “a variety of modes” during the free weekend, including Quick Play, Custom Games, and Arcade. Additionally, players can level up, earn loot boxes, and unlock cosmetic items for the duration of the event.”

According to Blizzard, if you play on the Xbox One or PS4, and you used your Blizzard, PSN or Xbox Live Account to play the game – your progress will be carried over IF you decide to purchase the game in the future.

If you don’t have the game yet, I gotta wonder why! Not only is it a fantastic and much different game than all the other games out there right now, but even though the game is a few years old, they still keep up with new content, new DLCs, and brand new events every single year – hell, several times a year!

Right now, they are having the Lunar New Year Event in fact which will be going on until March 5th. The Overwatch Lunar event adds new skins and of course new seasonal items to the game, as well as a new mode.

Gamers Elite has written a ton of content about the game which you can check out below.

The aptly named year Of The Dog event is, of course, a follow up to last years event of the Rooster. The Rooster brought in a lot of new skins, some sprays, and a few new emotes so its only safe to say that the 2018 event for the Lunar New Year will also bring in some of the same items.
