Activision and Blizzard announced that Overwatch is free to play on PC until January 4th. From today and until January 4th, 2021, PC gamers can visit its Battlenet page, download and start playing it.
This free trial will give you access to all 32 heroes and 28 maps. Additionally, you can keep all your progress once – and if – you decide to purchase it.
Overwatch is a team-based online multiplayer first-person shooter that assigns players into two teams of six. Each player selects one of the pre-defined characters, called heroes, each with unique movement, attributes, and abilities.
In Overwatch, players work together to secure and defend control points on a map or escort a payload across the map in a limited amount of time.
You can download and start playing the game from Battlenet.
John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. 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. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
