Blizzard have announced that Overwatch will get a free weekend during the UK's long Bank Holiday weekend, also coinciding with Gamescom.
Those on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will all be catered for when the free period begins on the 23rd of August. Blizzard will be presenting at Gamescom the day before, on the 22nd.
The full character roster will be available, and any progress earned will be fully transferable to the full game once the weekend ends. If you have a PS4 or Xbox One, you can start pre-loading it now, however those on PC unfortunately cannot.
The free period begins at precisely 7PM BST 23rd, and will finish at exactly 7:59AM BST on the 27th for those in the UK.
