    Overwatch stuck in free trial


    A while back I bought and was able to play overwatch origins edition. Then, before i new that game sharing was against xbox’s terms and service, game shared with my friend. But there was one problem, every time I tried to play overwatch it would say that
    I was in the “free trial” and that I could not play at this time. While researching how to counter this I stumbled upon a post talking about how game sharing was against the terms and service of Microsoft. Fearing an account ban I removed his games and account.
    But overwatch is still keeping me in the free trail. I purchased the game so far back that it doesn’t appear in my purchase history but I do have in game purchases to prove i had owned the game. I have tried everything, uninstalling and reinstalling, factory
    reseting my xbox. I was about to just give up and re-purchase the game but it wont even allow me to do that! I would like to know if there is anyway I could get overwatch back or if i’ll just have to go out and purchase the disc.

    :)

    First, search your order history. Find the item mentioned, look in the store and try to install it.

    I remember at that, OW has two versions, one exclusively for free weekend and other buyable. Make sure you are downloading the correct version.

    If you still can't play, contact xbox support.

    If it's not showing in your purchases, then you didn't purchase it. Maybe your just not seeing it...

    >>CLICK ME<< to go to purchase history. Make sure to use the ALL AVAILABLE and DIGITAL filters, and keep scrolling till you spot what you're
    looking for. You can then set it to install from there

    Overwatch stuck in free trial, HELP!

    I found another discussion for this, and there are multiple answers, but the one I see the most is to change the setting on your xbox to "play disk automatically". This will force the xbox to read the disk first, before internal storage, which is where it
    is reading the free trial from. Hopefully this helps!

    Love Overwatch, see you out there!
    The thing is, thats already checked. It still does the trial thing :(
