Overwatch 2 announces the beta schedule

If you’ve been wanting to play Overwatch 2, here’s your chance. Blizzard has just announced the scheduled time for Overwatch 2’s first PvP beta test—Tuesday, April 26, at 11 AM PT and will last until Tuesday, May 17.

Lucky players will receive an invitation to try the game during this time, and possibly more will be sent as the beta test goes on. If you want a better chance of getting access to the beta, you can try to grab them through Twitch drops. Just watch selected streamers between April 27 from 10:00 am PT to 6:00 pm PT.


Testing, Testing

In case you don’t get the chance to try out the beta, don’t fret. Blizzard has announced that they will hold more betas in the future, although the exact details will have to wait till the current test is complete. Future beta tests will also include the console versions, as the current one is for PC only.

Players have much to look forward to in this beta, because they get the chance to try out the newest Damage hero, Sojourn. 



There’s more to look forward to with the new game mode, Push, as well as the new 5v5 team.
