Here’s how to play an entire week of Overwatch for free

The Overwatch team announced via Twitter that Overwatch would be free-to-play on PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One for a week, from November 20-26.

The free week comes shortly after Overwatch’s newest hero, Ashe, was introduced into the game and is probably aimed at getting new players in to try the hero out.

Overwatch has offered free weekends before, but this is the first time the game is offering an entire week of free-to-play.

Some veteran players like the free weekends because it introduces a lot of new players to the game, who might not be as experienced, which means easy wins.

Console players could use the free week to try out Overwatch on PC, and decide if they want to make the switch.

Blizzard usually offers a sale on Overwatch at the end of the games free week/weekends, giving new players or those who might be looking to switch platforms a little more incentive.

Of course, the free week is also an opportunity for smurfs, veteran players who make new accounts to make other players think they’re new to the game, to get their latest accounts up and running.


Incredible Overwatch custom game lets you drive a ‘Lamborghini’

An Overwatch racing game might not be all too far off now as a stylish new Workshop mode places heroes behind the wheel, allowing you to drive through any given map.

Driving a car is now possible in Overwatch thanks to the power of the Workshop. Players have modded their own custom vehicle into existence, allowing you to take it for a spin and drift through the game.

It’s not a simple trick that lets your hero move faster than usual. It’s a proper vehicle design that you can take control of and drive around. 

In fact, it’s modeled after the Lamborghini Aventador SV, giving you some style and some speed as you cruise through the world of Overwatch.

Ever wanted to drive a Lambo? Now you can… in Overwatch.

“I’ve turned Overwatch into a Streetwatch,” GraczCourier’s Gaming revealed on January 21. While it might look a little different to what you had in mind, it functions better than perhaps any Workshop vehicle to date.

A collection of pipes and electricity effects bring the template of the car to life. Players have complete control over the direction of the Lambo, along with its speed as well.

You can drift around corners, activate nitrous, and even change the radio station while you’re in the driver’s seat. Not only that, but the custom mode appears to work across every map in the game.

This means you can boost through Hanamura, take in the sights of Blizzard World, or jet around London on King’s Row. Handling looks to be extremely precise as an accompanying video showcased just what’s possible with the Aventador in Overwatch.

While it’s a blast to drive around, there’s a unique challenge to it as well. How fast can you get through your favorite map? How long can you drift in one attempt? You and your teammates can put it all to the test.

The flashy Workshop mode is available for anyone to check out in-game now. Try it out for yourself with the following Workshop code: 4XQP4
