There’s a free Overwatch weekend in your future later this month

Yes, she has them.

As a buy-to-play game, Overwatch has always had that financial barrier that’s kept some potentially interested players at bay. For those who haven’t taken the plunge yet, Blizzard is planning to tempt them with an extended free play weekend in the near future.

From August 23rd through the 27th, anyone can access Overwatch on the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One and enjoy it with no restrictions for the duration of the event. It’s a good time to have this happen, what with the Summer Games going on and all. And yes, progression made during this weekend will carry over if you decide to purchase the game afterward.

“For this free weekend, we’re making Overwatch’s full roster of 28 heroes — along with the newly released Wrecking Ball — and 18 maps available for play in a variety of modes, including Quick Play, Custom Games, and the Arcade,” said Blizzard.

I play Overwatch super casually, and for me that’s the only way I could manage. I’m not really one for competitive play in any game.
But I do love jumping in and making people mad at Sombra. :) Sombra is the character that originally drew me into the game and I play her most. Been playing a bit more Moira lately and Lucioball is fun.
The free weekends are a good time to check it out.

not unless the community has suddenly become not toxic.

The thing that really bothers me though is they have this amazing world built with these amazing characters…. and yet the gameplay is just your standard capture point.

This is a game that NEEDS a single player/co op campaign story mode. I mean just imagine how great a co op story based mission would be and how fun it could be using each character with their unique powers and abilities.

No there’s not.
