New free weekend announced for Overwatch, begins on February 16th

Activision and Blizzard have announced a new free weekend for their team-based multiplayer online first-person shooter, Overwatch. This new free weekend will begin on February 16th and will last until February 19th.

For this free weekend, Blizzard will be making Overwatch’s full roster of 26 heroes and 16 maps available for play in a variety of modes, including Quick Play, Custom Games, and the Arcade. Players will also have the ability to level up, earn Loot Boxes, and unlock a variety of different customization options.

As always, those who decide to purchase Overwatch after test driving the game will get to keep any progress that they made during the weekend. Do note that you’ll have to use the same Blizzard account that you played on during this free weekend.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
