Still unsure on whether to pick up Overwatch following the hype from the World Cup and the upcoming Overwatch League? Then wonder no more as Overwatch Free Weekend starts next week, from 3am on the 18th of November (Saturday) 2017 and will run til 4PM on 21st November 2017 for Asian regions.

The free-to-play event is open for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. However, before your watch can begin, you’ll first need to install Overwatch on your chosen platform. Each platform is a little different so to install and play on November 17 (or whichever date depending on your timezone), follow the instructions below:

For Windows PC

Step 1: Download and install the Blizzard Battle.net desktop app, if you haven’t already, and launch it.
Step 2: Create a FREE Blizzard account, or log in with an existing account.
Step 3: Click the “Overwatch” icon, located on the left-hand side of the Blizzard desktop app.
Step 4: Select your region from the drop-down menu, then click “Install” to begin the installation process.
Step 5: Once installed, click “Play” to begin!

For PlayStation 4

Step 1: Turn on your PlayStation 4 and log in to your preferred local user.
Step 2: Go to PlayStation Store and select “Search” from the top menu.
Step 3: In the search field, type in “Overwatch.”
Step 4: Select “Overwatch Free Weekend” from the search results and then click “Download.”
Step 5: Once the download and installation process is complete, click “Start” to begin!

For Xbox One

Step 1: Turn on your Xbox One and log in to your Xbox Live account.
Step 2: Go to the Xbox One Store, then select “Search.”
Step 3: In the search field, type in “Overwatch.”
Step 4: Select “Overwatch: Origins Edition” from the search results and then click “Free Trial.”
Step 5: Once the download and installation process is complete, click “Launch” to begin!

The Overwatch Free Weekend client will be available for download throughout the duration of the free weekend. New players who sign up will have access to Overwatch’s full roster of heroes, maps, and a selection of features including Quick Play, Custom Games, the Arcade, and Loot Boxes.

Any progression obtained during the free weekend will carry to the final game in case you decide to pick up the game in full, as long as you use the same account when activating your purchased copy. How cool is that? In the wise words of Winston – Are you with me?
