Scrap all your weekend plans folks as Double XP Weekend is back for Overwatch.
2 years of Overwatch. Twice the XP.
Earn DOUBLE XP this weekend on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One!
— Overwatch (@PlayOverwatch) June 6, 2018
As confirmed by the game’s official website, all players who log in this weekend on all platforms; PC, PlayStation 4, or Xbox One will receive double experience.
This bonus will apply to nearly all sources of in-game XP, including:
- Time spent in a match
- Completing a match
- Completing consecutive matches
- Winning a match
- Backfilling a match in progress
- Earning medals
Best of all, it will also stack multiplicatively with existing group and IGR bonuses. The only experience it will not affect is your First Win of the Day bonus—which will remain at 1500 XP.
The double XP period begins in all regions across all platforms starting Saturday, June 9 at 2 a.m (Singapore/ Malaysia/ Hong Kong) and ends on Tuesday, June 12 at 2:59 a.m
