Downloading the trial version of Overwatch (buy now € 57.99 ), which, by the way, will be available until January 4, 2021, can be found in the Blizzard Entertainment online store. The free trial version of the multiplayer shooter includes all 32 heroes, which are also available in the full version, so that you can experiment to your heart's content and find your personal loved ones.
