Overwatch Beta Starts October 27th!


For those of you interested in Overwatch, Blizzard’s upcoming First Person shooter, you’ll be happy to hear that beta will be starting on October 27th. Blizzard stated in their latest Overwatch blog post that they are looking for player feedback on the core game and server stability.

There will be two types of betas:

  • Closed Beta – a small number of testers that will have regular access. This will mainly be to test core systems.
  • Best Test Weekends – a large number of people can play for a certain amount of time. This will be for stress testing. These weekends will run in parallel with the closed beta.

Sadly the beta will be for Windows-only. You’ll also need the Battle.net desktop app to play. You’ll receive an email if you’re accepted into either of the two beta options with instructions on how to proceed. If you don’t get into Closed Beta, perhaps you’ll get in on a beta weekend. The first Beta Test Weekend is slated for after BlizzCon 2015; this year BlizzCon is on November 6th and 7th.

If you’re looking to get in, good luck!
