The game can be played for free from the 20th to 26th.

Description
There’s never been a better time to become an Overwatch agent. If you’re ready to join your friends on the payload, now's your chance.

For this free trial, we're making the ultimate team-based shooter’s entire content available including the full roster of 29 heroes—including the newly released gunslinger Ashe—and 19 maps available for play in a variety of modes, such as Quick Play, Custom Games, and the Arcade. Players will also be able to level up, earn Loot Boxes, and unlock different customization options for their heroes.

During the Free Trial, players will have the opportunity to unlock in-game rewards for a limited time! Players with linked Blizzard and Twitch accounts can watch two hours of Overwatch streams starting November 20 through November 26 to earn three Ashe-themed sprays.

Hope it helps someone.

Only just out on the switch. Are they planning free to play?
Oh.... It's just a free trial for a week. Thought it was free to play forever.

Yeah my bad. There has been a bit of chatter about this going free to play, so I took this deal as confirmation that it had happend. Should have paid more attention.

Reckon I'm going to fork out for it on the switch.
Good deal. Crap game IMO.
Are trophies obtainable in this free trial?
Is this correct? I can find no reference to this other than the free play 20-26 Nov 2018 on the official website and given there are now 31 heroes, Ashe is not recent either, this probably relates to the 2018 one and not this year.

In my opinion, the 2 2 2 system has ruined it.

Now you have to depend on random players being good in the role they picked (unless you team up) instead of just switching between classes to carry the game...

So many games where if I had the option to change to DPS from tank/support I know I would have made a bigger impact for our team.

And then if you want to play DPS you have to wait 10-15 minutes between rounds. (I know that doesn't sound too long but the wasted time soon adds up).

They moved the classic mode into arcade so it's still playable as it was before.

Fair enough but imo it's better as I always get sided with nobody that wants to heal or tank and this way they've got no choice

I always played whatever the team needed, but I usually always switched it up to counter the enemy team.

So now I'm just sat begging the Torb to switch to Reaper so he can sneak around the back and take out the god damn Widow, but nope just build a turret and run around like a headless chicken..

Yeah I agree with that. I do find even on classic mode you'll get people who won't switch anyway. They'll sit as widow on maps that doesn't need a widow and not kill anyone. Offering nothing to the team. Myself I can switch upto 4 times a game to make an impact but rarely see anyone else doing it

I think too many people play the game as a standard shooter, instead of thinking its more about team play and using heroes who work well together / using abilities together.

Too many times have I said "Please Hanzo just switch... switch to anything.."

Just running about like its Call of Duty.

The game is impossible if you're not playing as a team. You'll never win a game against a solid team who stick together with the right heroes. But 9 times out of 10 I'll be put on teams with people who solo play
Thanks for pointing this deal out!
I'm ranked Master and love this game competitive player only.
They are desperate to get good will /PR back on their side despite a public hollow apology and only caring about money, falsely promoting free speech despite having their own members of staff personal social activity monitored by Blizzard.

I’ve boycotted Blizzard / Activision months ago don’t support these scum bags and let them sink their teeth into you and trick you into purchasing microtransactions.

Just focus on your own gameplay to win games.
DPS queue can range from 1-8min in quick play. Mostly quick for me tbh never had it go above that.

I did some digging, the article linked from the OP is from 2018, although...

Blizzard did also do a free play weekened in November 2017 as well from the 17th to the 20th,
news.blizzard.com/en-…one

So there might not be a free play weekend on the exact dates (still could happen), there's a very real chance there's a free weekend in November reguardless.
Boycott Activision-Blizzard
Cold, TF2 has been free to play for ages.
