Overwatch Free Weekend Announced For 22-25 September

One of them improvements coming to Overwatch players is that Blizzard will share more feedback with players when their reports result in an action. Aside from that, players can try out the new Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch modes, the new Highlights system and much more. I wish we could take the time that we put into putting reporting on console and put that towards a match history or replay system instead. Blizzard addressed this issue by rolling out the feature to report players and it's seen active use. Kaplan explained that this was because he and the rest of Blizzard Entertainment are focusing their energy on cleaning the game of players who seem to be intent on destroying the experience for others.

The free weekend is open to players in America, Europe and most of Asia, with South Korea unfortunately not included. It goes without saying that interested individuals better make sure to have Overwatch installed on their systems beforehand in order to save time. "We just don't want those people in Overwatch", he says.

"The community needs to take a deep look inward", he said.

"Think of all the times someone said something negative to you in the game, and imagine if they said something positive instead". Whether its Call of Duty or Counter-Strike, toxic gamers have been around for almost as long as online gaming itself, and most mature gamers already know how to deal with it by simply blocking or muting those players. I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say that this may just be the project to revitalize lapsed or disheartened gamers' interest in the medium, or the one to bring new players onboard the FPS wagon. "It was the exact same people that had to work on both, who got re-routed to work on the other". If they do, everyone will win with more content in the long run.
