Free trial begins 8/23/18 at 11:00 AM PDT and ends 8/27/18 at 11:59 PM PDT

PC:
Download and install the Blizzard Battle.net desktop app and launch it, find it at https://www.blizzard.com/en-us/
Create a free Blizzard account, or log in with an existing account.
Click the Overwatch icon on the left-hand side of the Blizzard desktop app.
Select your region from the menu, then click 'Install' to begin the process.
Once installed, click 'Play' to begin.
Here's how to take part in the free trial on PS4:

PlayStation Store
"Search" from the top menu.
In the search field, type in Overwatch.
Select 'Overwatch Free Weekend' from the search results, click 'Download'.
Once the download and installation process is complete, click 'Start' to begin.

In the search field, type in 'Overwatch'.
Select 'Overwatch: Origins Edition' from the results and click 'Free Trial'.
Once the download and installation process is complete, click 'Launch'.




Overwatch is free to play this weekend only. If you like it, you may get the standard edition on PC for $20.

The Legendary Edition adds some skins and what not. Nothing I want, but see this deal thread on a possible cheaper way to get Legendary for less on Amazon:

Overwatch has lost so many players to Fortnite and now the next Battlefield and Call of Duty are coming. This is going on a fire sale for Black Friday.

While they may have a good sale, this is already a good deal based on comparable previous sales.

CoD and BF are jokes and the more serious gaming community has been complaining about those franchises. I can agree with you on Battle Royale games grabbing users. Fortnite has a ton of players, but it's not my cup of tea. PUBG is the more adult version of that.

Either way, it's all personal preference. Many suggest R6S xx CS:GO, and Overwatch as your main games with the most community respect.

Anyone know how to buy the standard edition for $20 for Xbox? It only gives me the option to play for free, but I want to buy it while it's still $20. When I go to buy in game, it brings me to the legendary edition. Also tried via Xbox.com, same thing

OW is my favorite game in so long. As frustrating as it can be at times, the controls work amazingly well for all characters and it's really up to you to figure out the best way to use characters. It would be a game that would have benefited SO much from coming out in an era when people still used headsets, as you're lucky to find 1-2 people in a room that might have a live mic, but it's still so good. I can't recommend this game any higher. There are a million things that I wish would be changed (i.e. Dva's room clearing explosion), but the game is just solid. When you play with a team, there's so much strategy to pick from to set up your team and modify as you go. It's a blast. Especially when you just have one of those great games.

Anyway, I am sure anyone interested in the game knows something about it already, but continued support, free DLC, easy to earn loot boxes, and great character design, this game is still easily worth MSRP.

I am still getting this same option in app and it's past the free weekend time frame. I almost got excited thinking it was free with Gold.
