The end of the year celebrations are just around the corner and no one can resist receiving a gift of any kind. As a Christmas gift to its thousands and thousands of users, Blizzard announced that Overwatch is now available to play for free , although it will be for a limited time.
Starting December 23rd, Blizzard’s multiplayer shooter will be free to play, but only on PC . To close the year as it deserves, fans will enjoy a practically unlocked Overwatch with all 32 available heroes and 28 included maps.
As in any promotion, there are conditions, so the title developed by Blizzard will only be available at no cost until January 4, 2021 . Those who want to play Overwatch on PC require Windows 7, 8 or 10 at 64-bit and with the latest service pack update.
To enjoy a better experience, the developer company recommends having a screen with a minimum resolution of 1024 x 768, Intel Core i3 and a broadband internet connection . You also need to have at least 4 GB of RAM and 30 GB of available hard disk space.
During the free period, PC users will be able to purchase Overwatch at a 50% discount. But that’s not all, since PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will also have the possibility to take advantage of the half price promotion until next January 4.
Meanwhile, Blizzard continues to work on development for Overwatch 2 after its release in 2019. There aren’t many clues as to the release date so far, but rumors recently surfaced that the game could hit the market until October 2021.
