Blizzard Entertainment, the developer of the popular team-based shooter game Overwatch has announced today another free weekend of gameplay from November 18 through 21. Just like the company did for the previous free weekend in September, players will be able to try Overwatch’s 22 heroes and 13 maps in various game modes including Quick Play, Custom Games and more. Even better, all their progress will be saved if they decide to buy the game after the free weekend.
