Play Overwatch for free this weekend, February 17-20

Did the Overwatch League Season 1 hype you up to play Overwatch? Or did the new Year of the Dog event make you want to play the game? Whatever the case may be, if you still don’t have a copy of Overwatch then this weekend’s the perfect time for you! Overwatch will be free to play this February 17-20 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

As with previous Overwatch free weekends, all 26 heroes and 17 maps will be playable for free-to-play players. The various Overwatch game modes will also be available, including the new event-limited Ayutthaya Capture-the-Flag map.

Not everything will be available though, as competitive mode will be locked for free players. But everyone will still be able to level up and earn loot boxes. Free players who buy a copy of the game will have their progress and items carry over, provided he/she uses the same account.

Here are the deployment times for the Overwatch free weekend:

For the Philippines, the free weekend will start on February 19 at 3:00am, and will end on February 20 at 3:59pm.

To download Overwatch, you will need Battle.net account for PC users, and a PlayStation Plus/Xbox Live Gold membership for those on consoles (PS4/XBOX).
