The Overwatch leak reveals the dates of the next free promotion

An enterprising fan of Overwatch has discovered what appears to be the dates of a forthcoming free promotion for the game during the Storm Rising Archives event.

Storm Rising is the last event in the Overwatch archive and, like Uprising and Retribution, it will offer a PvE mission to players.

It seems that Blizzard hopes to use all the new content to encourage new players to try the game or the old ones to come back, with a free week starting at the same time as Storm Rising.

Free to play, you say?

According to an image of Xbox Live published in Reddit by Findlaya11, this free trial will take a week from the start of Storm Rising on April 16th.

Storm Rising lasts until May 6, but the free trial only lasts until April 23. To continue playing beyond this point, players will have to buy the game.

With a ton of new content coming to Storm Rising, including a new map, there's no better time to try to attract new players or recover old ones.

We still do not know if the promotion will only be available in certain regions, but it should be on Xbox, PS4 and PC.


What else do we know about Storm Rising?

Up to now, Overwatch has revealed five new skins for the event, so far for McCree, Moira, Baptiste, Junkrat and Hammond.

A new map, Havana, was teased before the event and so far reveals all the details of the skin, but no exact details have yet been revealed.

We know that a new PvE event is coming up, which makes the Archive event very attractive to players every year.
