If you've managed to miss the most recent Overwatch free weekend and you're itching for another chance to dive in, you'll be glad to hear that there will be another one running from July 26 to July 30. However, unlike the past few free weekends, this one will only be available for PC!

As far as content is concerned, you'll be able to play with all 28 of the heroes (including the upcoming Wrecking Ball), wonder across all 18 maps, explore all of the various game modes, and naturally, unlock all sorts of cosmetics for your heroes. The only thing that will be locked away from you is the competitive mode, mostly to prevent any sort of griefing that might occur due to the influx of numerous free accounts.

Personally, I would highly recommend taking Blizzard up on their offer and giving Overwatch a try this next weekend. Not only has the balance been consistently getting better, but the new hero Wrecking Ball is ridiculously fun to play given his heavy focus on mobility and combos. So if you're even remotely interested in Overwatch, this upcoming patch is going to be a pretty darn good one to start with!

To learn more about Wrecking Ball, or just Overwatch as a whole, you should head on over to the official website. And as a final note, allow me to leave you with this (unfortunately tiny) infographic showing the official starting times for the various time zones.
