Free Weekend Kicks Off Today On All Platforms - Overwatch - MMORPG.com

In celebration of the Overwatch first anniversary, Blizzard is swinging open the doors to invite everyone in for a weekend of fun. From May 26th to May 29th, players on XBox One, PC and PlayStation 4 can take part in the game with no restrictions. All 24 heroes and 14 maps are available as well as all game modes. In addition, players can level, earn Loot Crates, customize their heroes an more.

Players who purchase Overwatch during or after the free weekend will retain all prior progress. That's a pretty sweet deal.

The weekend kicks off at 11:00 am Pacific / 2:00 pm Eastern today. You can check the start times for other locations here.

You can read a handy FAQ and check out installation instructions on the Overwatch site.
