Overwatch Sombra To Be Included on Free Weekend?
For veteran Overwatch players, we all know how excited we are with the latest Overwatch update where Sombra went live earlier today. And good news, our favorite hacker hero is confirmed to be included in the upcoming Overwatch free weekend. This is the part where you plan on which snacks you are going to panic buy tonight.
To those who ready for Overwatch Free to Play this weekend, you will get the chance to play Overwatch Quick Play, its Custom Games, and Overwatch Weekly Brawl on all the 13 maps with the 22-hero roster. Additionally, you'll also be able to earn loot, unlock items and even level up. But of course, you need to get Overwatch with the same Battle.net, PSN, or Xbox Live account.
Overwatch download size is estimated to be 12GB for this free weekend's client. While Overwatch Achievements and the Trophies are going to be disabled for this weekend's players, progression will be carried over so it's still a "yehey" thing.
