Play Overwatch free over Thanksgiving week between bouts of stuffing your face

Overwatch is free to play starting today and for the duration of the week.

Blizzard has made Overwatch free to play today through November 26 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Not a bad way to spend Thanksgiving week.

Pre-loading started last week for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A PlayStation Plus membership and Xbox Live Gold subscription is required.

The entire content of the game will be available including the full roster of 29 heroes, as well as all maps and modes.

All progress saved during the free trial week will carry over to the full game upon purchase.

During the Free Trial, folks with linked Blizzard and Twitch accounts who watch two hours of Overwatch streams will unlock in-game rewards. Watch the streams today through November 26 and earn three Ashe-themed sprays.

More information is available on the Overwatch website. Start times for various regions are posted below.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.

Buy our t-shirts, yeah

They're far more stylish than your average video game website tat.
