Blizzard has been super excited to share their Overwatch Anniversary video which shares some of the highlights and favourite moments and its finally here, with one happy announcement to those players who have yet to try Overwatch.

Starting May 23rd will be kicking off the Overwatch Anniversary celebration leading to a free weekend from 26th-29th.

For this free weekend, Overwatch's full roster of 24 heroes and 14 maps will be 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. It is nice to note if you then purchase the game later all progress remains.

The Overwatch Free Weekend will run from May 26–29. PlayStation 4 owners with a PlayStation Plus membership, Xbox One owners with an Xbox Live Gold membership, and Windows PC users with a Battle.net account will be able to download and play Overwatch for FREE during this period—no special keys or sign-up codes needed!
