    Overwatch will have a new patch coming but may still not be available for the players right away, the new patch appeared on the Blizzard's CDN. Overwatch may have a few things in common with some free-to-play PC shooters, but it’s not a free-to-play game. At present, the only way to play Overwatch is to buy it. A free trial mode of some sort may soon be available.

    According to the latest news on Dataminers at the Overpwn, things are about to change, They manage to dig a little deeper on the upcoming patch and found a couple of lines mentioning that a FREE TRIAL option might be coming.

    • Sorry, the Overwatch Free Trial is not available at this time.
    • Group members using trial cannot enter competitive play.
    • Not available for trial.
