From Blizzard Entertainment:

Starting today, Overwatch will be free to play from Friday, May 25th through Monday, May 28th on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. For those playing on PlayStation 4, Sony PlayStation will NOT require a PS Plus subscription to participate in Free Weekend (PS Plus will still be required to play after purchase).

During this free weekend, we're making Overwatch's full roster of 27 heroes and 18 maps available for play in a variety of modes, including Quick Play, Custom Games, and the Arcade. Players will also be able to participate in the Overwatch Anniversary Event, as well as have the ability to level up, earn loot boxes, and unlock a variety of different customization options.

If players decide to purchase Overwatch after test driving the game, they'll get to keep any progress made during the weekend—as long as they use the same Blizzard, Xbox Live, or Sony Entertainment account that they played on.
