Play 'Overwatch' for free next weekend

Get your game on gratis September 9th - 12th on Xbox One and PS4.

If for whatever reason you still aren't sold on Overwatch, Blizzard's popular team-based shooter, you'll want to clear your schedule for next weekend. Blizzard announced on Thursday that it's putting on an Overwatch Free Weekend from September 9th to 12th.

The weekend technically starts September 9 at 2PM ET. Anyone with a PS4 or Xbox One will be able to download and play the 15GB game for free, no login required. You'll have access to all 22 playable characters and a variety of game styles, be able to level up, grab loot and troll your opponents. If you want to keep the spoils of your online battles once the weekend concludes at 7PM ET on the 12th, you'll need to pick up a copy of Overwatch: Origins Edition.
