If you are one of the few people who still want to but haven't tried Blizzard's newest title, you're in luck—Overwatch will be free to play starting at 11am PT on Nov. 17.

New Overwatch players across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC will all be able to play from Nov. 17 to 20 without buying the game. All 26 heroes, including new healer Moira, are playable during the timeframe. Likewise, all 16 maps will be unlocked during the free weekend.

Custom Games, Quick Play, and the Arcade are all open to free players. Overwatch's Competitive Play mode is only open to players who've purchased the game.

Players that choose to buy Overwatch during or after the free weekend will be able to keep any progress they've made, as long as the same Blizzard, Sony, or Xbox Live account is used.

The free weekend will begin Nov. 17 at 11am PT and end on Nov. 20 at 11:59pm PT across all regions.
