Overwatch will be playable for free on Nintendo Switch next week

When one thinks about Nintendo, the first thing that comes to mind is Super Mario, but Nintendo Switch has changed quite a few things for the fans of the Japanese company. Other than the multiple possibilities that the hybrid console offers to the players, the variety of games that have been released on it seems to be much wider than what you could find on previous Nintendo platforms. It's no strange then that games like Overwatch have a lot of adepts on Nintendo Switch already. If you are one of those, you will find a lot more players to play with starting next week, because Blizzard is hosting a special event in which the game will be playable for free. 

The only requirement needed to play Overwatch for free on Nintendo Switch from October 13 to October 20 is having an active subscription to Nintendo Switch Online service.



Overwatch free trial will give you access to all of the heroes and gameplay modes available in the game for a full week. As it usually happens with this kind of trial, any kind of progression made during the event will transfer over if you decide to buy Overwatch later, as long as you purchase the game with the same account you used for the trial, of course.

Overwatch offers you competitive team-based matches in a thrilling FPS experience. It includes a lot of characters to pick from and a variety of gameplay modes and innovative mechanics which, for example, let you swap the character you are playing in the middle of a match. Blizzard's take on the shooting genre has quite a lot of followers, it's a great game to have fun with your friends on your Nintendo Switch, and you can give it a try for free starting next week.
