You can try out any of Heroes of the Storm’s characters for free this weekend

The entire Heroes of the Storm roster will be available for free this weekend.

Heroes of the Storm features many free heroes, but a few others are locked behind a paywall. This paywall is a one-time fee you pay to unlock these characters, after which you get to use them forever.

Not this weekend, though, as Blizzard is hosting a free event that lets you try any of the characters for free. You’ll still need to pay for them after it’s over, but it’s a good way to give characters you’ve been interested in a go for free.

The free weekend takes place January 13–16 across all regions. In the video, the studio recaps the content and updates added to the game during 2016.
