Xbox Free Play Days weekend
This is not just a standard Overwatch that is available through Free Play Days, although but rather the Overwatch Origins Edition. The Origins Edition includes the base game and skins for five heroes: Reaper, Soldier: 76, Bastion, Pharah, and Tracer, it also happens to includes in-game items for other Blizzard games, unlocking tracer in Heroes of the storm, a Baby Winston pet in the world of Warcraft, portraits for StarCraft II, a Hearthstone card back, and Mercy wings for Diablo III.
Xbox Free Plays Games
Overwatch is now going free on Xbox alongside the launch of Ashe’s Deadlock challenge, a new limited-time event that offers players new icons, sprays, and an epic skin for Ashe by completing matches and watching Overwatch Twitch Streams for long hours. Ashe’s Deadlock challenge is on now until the 5th of July.
Overwatch Origins Edition also is accommodated by Saints Row IV: Re-Elected and Warhammer: Verminitide 2 for this free play Days weekend. Neither game requires plenty of introduction nowadays, but if you happen to be looking to play a wacky third-person action game or a Co-op monster slayer this weekend, these two-title fit the bill the way it is expected.
Xbox Game Pass Discounts
And As always, Free Play Days would be available to all that is subscribed to Xbox Live Gold or Xbox game Pass Ultimate. While discounts usually accompany these free play Days weekends, Overwatch Origins Edition actually is the only title on sale, as its Price has been further reduced from $59.99 to $19.80 for the duration of the weekend.
Unfortunately, Saints Row IV: Re-Elected and Warhammer: Verminitide 2 are both still at their normal prices of $19.99 and $29.99, respectively, so seems like you would want to keep them after the weekend has run out. You’ll be paying full price for the privilege. All three games would be available through Sunday, June 27th at 11:59 PM PDT.
