Try the new ‘Overwatch’ hero during the game’s free weekend

At Blizzcon earlier this month, the studio behind Overwatch announced a new playable character for the hero shooter: Moira, a healer with evasive and damage-dealing abilities. Last night, she became available to play on PC and consoles — and wouldn’t you know it, Blizzard is making the game free to try out this weekend, starting today.

Blizzard announced Moira with none of its usual teasing build-up, but the hero should be a nice respite for players who’ve been asking for a new healer. While she’s something of a potluck character with abilities recycled from a few other heroes, more variety in support characters has been on the community’s wish list for awhile.

There’s no word on when the new Overwatch map Blizzardworld, also announced at this year’s Blizzcon, will come to the game. For now, new players can try out the hero shooter from 11am PT today until 11:59pm on Monday, November 20th.

Oculus Rift bundle discounted to $379 until December 20th

After permanently slashing the Rift and Touch combo price to $399/£399, Oculus is at it again. With Christmas fast approaching, the VR headset bundle is now the cheapest it's been since Black Friday, at $379/£369. (Heads up that Amazon UK is still honoring the £349 Black Friday price for now, though.) The price cut means the device is fast approaching the more affordable Windows Mixed Reality gear on the market. But, the limited time deal is only up until 11.59PM (PT) on December 20th, so you'll have to be quick. You can grab the kit online via Oculus' website and in select stores, including Best Buy, Amazon, and Newegg.

With new games and apps making it onto the Oculus Store everyday, you won't be at a loss for entertainment come Christmas. Aside from the fresh beta release of the Rift Core 2.0 VR interface, Arktika.1 brought some motion-controlled action (from the makers of the Metro series) to the device in October. A companion experience for Pixar's latest smash, Coco, also arrived around the same time. And, you'd be silly to miss out on rhythmic shooter Rez Infinite, which we found to be a transcendental VR journey.
