You can play Overwatch for free next week with Nintendo Switch Online


NSO subscribers can play the Game Trial from October 13–20

If you've had your fill of Super Mario Bros. 35,  heads up: Nintendo is rolling out another one of its infrequent Nintendo Switch Online membership perks. For a limited time, Overwatch will be free to play.

To partake, just grab Overwatch from the eShop and play as much as your schedule allows between October 13 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific and October 20 at 11:59 p.m. This Nintendo Switch Online Game Trial contains the "entire game," so you'll want to set aside 12GB for the download. Progress carries over.

I imagine most of us know how we feel about Overwatch by now, but if you're curious about the game at large – or you just want to see how the Switch version in particular handles itself – go do your thing.

It's honestly bumming me out how disconnected I feel from Blizzard right now. I hope Diablo IV is good.
