It must surprise Blizzard that there are people out there still not playing Overwatch. But, to their tenacious credit, they won't let these stragglers live Overwatchless
forever, inviting them in for free this coming weekend to play with the full roster across a number of game modes.
The free weekend will take place across PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Here's the official line:
Attention, recruits! If you haven't already had the opportunity to suit up and save the world as one of the heroes of Overwatch, now's your chance!
During this free weekend, we're making Overwatch's full roster of 26 heroes and 17 maps available for play in a variety of modes, including Quick Play, Custom Games, and the Arcade. Players will also have the ability to level up, earn loot boxes, and unlock a variety of different customisation options.
If players decide to purchase Overwatch after test driving the game, they’ll get to keep any progress made during the weekend—as long as they use the same Blizzard, Xbox Live, or Sony Entertainment account that they played on.

Interestingly, outside of a few BlizzCon's ago, when the game was first revealed, this editor hasn't since jumped into the full release proper. I guess this weekend gives me no excuse now.
Are you also an Overwatch no-show? If so, what's stopped you jumping in?
