If for whatever reason you still aren't sold on Overwatch, Blizzard's popular team-based shooter, you'll want to clear your schedule for next weekend. Sony announced on Thursday that it will host an Overwatch Free Weekend from September 9th to 12th.

The weekend technically starts September 9 at 11am Pacific. Anybody with a PS4 (and Xbox One) will be able to download and play the 15GB game for free, no login required. You'll have access to all 22 playable characters and a variety of game styles, be able to level up, grab loot and troll your opponents. If you want to keep the spoils of your online battles once the weekend concludes at 4pm Pacific on the 12th, you'll need to pick up a copy of Overwatch: Origins Edition.
