The best thing about this trial is that there are absolutely no restrictions in terms of what fans can access in the game. This means despite being a free trial, players will have access to all the 32 heroes and 28 maps of the game, and also access to all the game modes. The fans will be able to level up and progress in the game.

Also, fans can interact with all the other features like earning loot boxes and cosmetics. The best part is it will save the progression of the fans even after the free trial ends on 2nd Jan 2022. This means that it will carry over all the progress earned in the free trial to the full version of the game if the fans buy the game using the same account. Currently, the free trial is available for three platforms: PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. Check here for more details.
