Blizzard Entertainment is giving PS4, PC, and Xbox One users a chance to test drive Overwatch for free later this week.

The latest Overwatch Free Weekend will run through February 16-19, and gives you access to the game's diverse roster of 26 agents and 17 maps to battle it out on. What's more, you'll have access to modes including Quick Play, Custom Games, and Arcade during the taster.

Players can also boost their character's level and hoover up loot boxes during the free trial, as well as tinker with various customisation options. As always, you can transfer any progress you make over to the full game, providing you simply use the same account you played the trial on.

Oh, and regular players might want to remember that Overwatch's Year of the Dog event is now live, featuring a bunch of new skins and other goodies. 

Carry on the conversation on the VideoGamer forums!
