In case you haven't played Overwatch and are curious what the game is all about, Blizzard is offering up two free weeks to play it. From now until January 4th, you can play the game, in-full, completely free on Battle.net. That includes all of the game's characters up to this point, all of the maps and items to get, and the current Holiday 2020 event happening in the game. Once the two weeks are up you'll need to buy the game, but all of your progress will be saved to your account so if you do decide to continue, you'll be able to pick up where you left off. Which, incidentally, they're selling the game for up to 50% off. We also have a new Developer Update video from last week for you below where Jeff Kaplan talks about a new map coming to the game.
