Since its debut in 2016, Blizzard’s popular shooter Overwatch has built up a large community thanks to its fast-paced gameplay and roster of characters, with a new opportunity opening up for players to try out the game for the first time.

Blizzard Entertainment has announced that a Free Weekend for Overwatch will be running from February 16th – 19th, 2018 across all versions of the game, allowing new players the chance to jump into the game for the first time on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

The trial itself will give players access to the full roster of 26 heroes and all of the game’s maps and modes, along with the ability to earn and open loot boxes to get new skins and other cosmetic items. Any items, experience, and progress that players earn over the course of the free trial period will also transfer over for players that purchase the full game on the same system/platform that they played the free trial on through Battle.net.

Overwatch is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC – for more specific details on the upcoming Free Weekend for the game as far as where and when you can access it, you can head here.
