Play Overwatch for Free This Weekend on PS4, Xbox One, and PC

Another free Overwatch weekend descends.

Here it is, another chance to play Overwatch for free on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. That's right, a free weekend of Overwatch will be held starting this Friday February 16 and will run until February 19.

The kickoff time will be 11 am PT/ 2 pm ET and includes access to all 26 Overwatch heroes and 16 maps. Quick Play, Custom Games, and Arcade mode will also be available. And if you were to pick up some loot along the way or level up, then your progress will be saved if you decide to buy the game afterwards. Just be sure to purchase the game using the same Blizzard, PSN< or Xbox Live account you used during the free trial.

Currently, Overwatch is holding its Lunar New Year event celebrating the year of the dog. The event will last through March 5 and includes a variety of new seasonal loot, including some kickass legendary skins for six heroes: Mercy, Pharah, Genji, Zarya, McCree, and Widowmaker.

So if you haven't already, now's your chance to jump-in and give Overwatch a whirl.
