Yesterday, Nintendo surprisingly announced that Overwatch will be available for a free week trial in Japan, but there was no word about anywhere else. Well, thankfully, Nintendo of America has confirmed that the Overwatch Game Trial is coming to North America and Europe, too!
From October 13th (Tues) until October 20th (Tues), Nintendo Switch Online members will be able to download the full Overwatch game for free and test it out for seven days. Again, that offer is only for Nintendo Switch Online members.
Once the Overwatch Game Trial has expired, players will be able to transfer any progress made to the full game if they so desire to buy it after trying it. The Japan announcement confirmed that Overwatch will be on sale during this trial period, so we can only assume that a similar sale will be available for North American and European members.
So one week from today, you will be able to download the full Overwatch game for Switch.
Thank you for stopping by Nintendo Link for all of your Nintendo Switch Online deals and downloads. What do you think of this offer? Do you think this may get some new players to jump into Overwatch? Or do you think something else? Let us know in the comments below! Happy gaming, everyone.
