Blizzard Entertainment are scheduling another free weekend for team-based shooter Overwatch, allowing newcomers to see first-hand what the fuss is all about. Open hunting season runs from 18-21 November for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with no restrictions on the hero roster, map selection, or game modes.

All progress – including levels, loot boxes, and character customizations options – will be saved should testers decide on buying the game. Sadly, Blizzard aren’t running any promotions to entice users into taking the plunge, a tactic commonly seen with other games.

Starts: 18 November, 3AM SGT
Ends: 21 November, 2:59PM SGT
