Really recommend this game to anyone who hasn't given it a try even though the trial is over, it's worth buying it.


Hella awesome to see them do another weekend, pretty decent game at that.


This is one game that's yet to decrease by a large amount in price, despite its age. I own it on the PS4 and it's enjoyable every time I manage to get on for a few games.


if anyone's on the xbox that wants to play this just hmu with a pm, i always play this


Very cool. Already have it on pc but good for others to try it!


Never really played the game but playing for free is great


Free overwatch weekend count me in.


Will be taking advantage of this loved the last free weekend it had.. Will have to pick the full game up sometime soon tho.
