Overwatch will be free-to-play later this month, Blizzard has announced.

In a post on the Overwatch website, the game’s developer said: “If you haven’t had a chance to join the fight for the future yet on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, then get ready for the perfect tactical opportunity.

“Assemble your friends and try out Blizzard’s team-based shooter during the Overwatch Free Weekend September 9–12!”

For the entirety of the weekend, the full roaster of 22 heroes and 13 maps will be available to play in a variety of game modes, including Quick Play, Custom Games and Weekly Brawl.

Players will be able to level up, earn Loot Boxes, and unlock different customization options via the Hero Gallery.

The free weekend begins on Friday, September 9th, 2016 at 6pm GMT, and ends on Monday, September 12th, 2016 at 11pm.

Any progress players make during the free-to-play weekend will be kept, if they choose to buy Overwatch: Origins Edition.
