Even so this free character weekend is a good way for everyone to try out the newly released characters.
Blizzard announced at BlizzCon 2015 that Overwatch’s teleporting dual wielder, Tracer will be heading to Hero’s Of The Storm. Tracer will be available on April 19. There hasn’t been any other Overwatch characters that have been confirmed at the moment. In an interview with Venturebeat, senior artist Phil Gonzales said,
“We’re planning on bringing Overwatch hero’s into the fold, but we are going to let Overwatch have its party, and then we’ll be like, hey there over here too. We have a soft limit of six months before we’ll do anything like that, but we absolutely will be visiting Overwatch and bring Overwatch to the Nexus.”
All the characters are available from now until Monday, April 11 at 10am PST, so hurry to get your chance to try out the various characters in Hero’s Of The Storm.
