Play Overwatch for free on PS4 and Xbox One


What is Overwatch?

Oh you know, only one of the biggest games to be released in 2016. Overwatch is a FPS released by Blizzard in May 2016 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Play Overwatch for Free?

Yup, Blizzard is making Overwatch free to play from September 9th, 2016 to September 12th, 2016 for PS4 and Xbox One ONLY, sorry PC gamers.

When will Overwatch be available for free?

Like I mentioned from Sep 9 – Sep 12, Xbox One members with gold and PS4 Plus members will be able to download the game for FREE. More specifically the game will be released around 2:00pm EST on September 9th.

How much of Overwatch will be free?

Almost all the content of the game will be available to users for the weekend including the use of all 22 heroes, 13 maps as well as a bunch of game modes such as Quick Play, Custom Games, and even Weekly Brawl.

Better yet you will be able to level up, earn loot boxes and unlock customization options as well.
And finally BEST of all, if you buy the full game for your respective console on the account that you played for free with, you get to keep all the game progression and it will carry over when you buy the full game.


Additional details:
  • The game is only available for free for PS4 and Xbox One and NOT PC.
  • Xbox Live gold will be required but PlayStation Plus is NOT required to play for the free weekend only but will be required to play the full version.
  • The Free Weekend of Overwatch will also support a number of different languages apart from English (up to 10 different languages)
  • Trophies and Achievements will NOT count as they will be disabled for the Free Overwatch Weekend.
  • Any and ALL progression made in terms of levels, skins and other items will, however carry over to the full game should you decide to buy the game later.
  • You will require about 9GB on the PlayStation 4 to install the game for the free weekend and about 15GB to install Overwatch for the Free weekend on the Xbox One.

Final Thoughts

I think this is a pretty good business decision from Blizzard to give out the free trial as anyone who doesn’t have Overwatch finally has a chance to see what all the hype has been about, myself included.

It also gives Blizzard a chance to get more people to buy Overwatch as many players will surely buy the full game after trying it and the free weekend is up.Many of the stragglers, who were on the fence about the game, will get a chance to play it for a whole weekend, potentially with friends and that should also convince them to make the jump to Overwatch.

Finally as for why Blizzard haven’t offered a free pass for PC players, only Blizzard would know the real answer to that. Keep in mind however that the Console version of the game costs almost double what the PC version costs. The majority of early adopters of Overwatch were in fact the PC gamers, meaning there is less of the remaining market of stragglers for PC gamers as compared to Xbox and PlayStaion.

Another reason is for those who initially got the game on PC but can’t run it on optimal settings, now get a chance to try the game out on the consoles thus having a chance that they might now buy the game AGAIN for their console.

Either way I am pretty excited for the Overwatch Free weekend and can’t wait to try the game out myself as I don’t have it, either on PC, PS4 or Xbox One. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below, are you excited for free Overwatch Weekend?
