You can try out Blizzard’s team-based shooter for free this weekend on every platform.

If you’ve been waiting for the price on Overwatch to come down before you give it a try, you’re in luck. Blizzard has kicked off a free weekend for the popular shooter, so all you need to do is download it and try it out.

Starting today, all you need to do is head over to PlayOverwatch.com and click on the banner at the top for your platform of choice to get directions on how to get started. The free weekend runs from today through Monday, the 21st at 7 PM ET.

There is one big restriction: you can’t play Competitive. Honestly though, that’s probably for the best. You’ll still be able to check out Quick Play, Custom Modes, and more. You’ll also get to play as all 23 heroes on all 13 maps. You can also look forward to earning loot boxes, customizing your characters, and all that fun stuff. If you wind up buying the game, your progress will carry over.

If you want to make the most of the free weekend, you should probably get started now.
