Overwatch May Get A Free Trial

Those interested in demoing Overwatch may be in luck. Data-mined files that were found in the game’s latest update strongly imply that the game may receive a free trial at a later date.

According, a news article on Overpwn, Blizzard has made several hints that the game may receive a free trial somewhere down the road to allow new players a chance to demo the game out to see if they enjoy it. Similar to how the developers allowed free trials for World of Warcraft and StarCraft II. The strings found in the data-mined can be found below:

  • Sorry, the Overwatch Free Trial is not available at this time.
  • Group members using the trial cannot enter competitive play.
  • Not available for trial

Should a free trial ever come to surface those who participate in the free trial will not have complete access to the game, or the game could be a timed trial. Unfortunately, the free trial’s limitations have not been revealed, but there is a strong possibility that the game will have a level cap. Regardless, the developer has yet to confirm or deny that the game will receive a free trial so it’s best to take this with a pinch of salt.
