Open Beta Coming to PC, PS4™, and Xbox One
By Blizzard Entertainment 2 hours ago 63

Want a chance to check out Overwatch™ ahead of its May 24 launch? Form a team of friends and try out the team shooter of tomorrow in the Overwatch Open Beta, coming in early May to PC, PS4™, and Xbox One!

As a newly added bonus, if you pre-purchase or preorder Overwatch for any platform at www.buyoverwatch.com, you'll also get early access to the Open Beta for you and a friend from May 3–4. After that, everyone will have a chance to play free during an all-access Open Beta period from May 5–9.



PC, PS4, and Xbox One players alike will be able to experience the intense action of Overwatch for themselves, including all of our launch-day heroes and maps. Read on below for more information, and be sure to stay tuned for additional details.










To get a two-day head start in the Open Beta for you and a friend on May 3–4, simply pre-purchase or preorder any edition of Overwatch by April 29 through one of the methods below.

BATTLE.NET SHOP:
Pre-purchase the digital version of Overwatch or Overwatch: Origins Edition for PC via the Battle.net Shop. We'll send two early-access keys (PC) to your Battle.net email address—one for you and one for a friend—before the Open Beta begins.

If you've already pre-purchased digitally through Battle.net, you're good to go. We'll send you two keys before the Open Beta early-access period gets started.

RETAIL STORES:
Pre-purchase or preorder any version of Overwatch at a participating retailer, and your retailer will give you two Open Beta early-access keys for your specific platform before the early access period begins—one key for you, and one for a friend. Distribution varies by retailer, so check with them for additional details.

To find a participating retailer in North America, visit www.buyoverwatch.com. If you don't see your favorite store listed, check with them to find out if they're taking part in this promo.

If you previously pre-ordered or pre-purchased Overwatch at a participating retailer, contact your store to find out how to receive your early-access keys.

PLAYSTATION STORE & XBOX STORE – COMING SOON:
Preorder the PS4 version or pre-purchase the Xbox One version of Overwatch: Origins Edition digitally through the PlayStation Store or Xbox Store (once available), and you'll automatically be flagged for early access to the Open Beta on your console.

Before the Open Beta early-access period begins, you’ll also receive one additional early-access key (valid only for the same platform).


And don't forget: In addition to receiving early access to the Open Beta, when you pre-purchase or preorder any version of Overwatch, you'll also get the Noire Widowmaker skin at launch! Visit www.buyoverwatch.com for more details.






Q. By what date do I need to pre-purchase to get early access to the Open Beta?

Q. When will I receive my early access keys?

Q. How will I receive my early access key from a retailer?

Q. How do I get early access to the Open Beta if I previously preordered or pre-purchased at a participating retail store, but didn't get an early access key?
A. If you previously pre-purchased or preordered Overwatch at a participating retailer, contact your store to find out how to receive your early access keys.

Can't wait to give it a try. Clearly got some confidence in it to pretty much make the whole thing available during the beta.

I was reading that for people who get Early Access also get another Code for a Friend, so if anyone does get any spare Early Access Codes it would be appreciated.

This is my most wanted game this year (yes more than battlefield 5) i have waited 2 years for this i got a gaming pc rig as i though it would be pc only then they announce it on console 2 weeks after i get me bloody pc. I signed up for the beta day one and not got in the beta or the beta weekends.

I have watched alot of this game though and this game is more than a beta the game is very solid game that just needs a few tweaks.The meta is going to be different on console to pc and they have all ready nerfed a few hero's on console. I can say 76 getting used alot as he is very easy to use and i can see him getting nerfed on console.

If you have never seen anything on this game there is plenty of footage on YT watch it this game is going to be huge it all ready is on PC.

Here are a few tips on hero's to use to get started.


ASSAULT
Soldier 76
mcCree

Tank
Winston

Healer
Mercy
Lucio

Support
Widow maker

Damage
Tracer
