Following the leak that revealed a release date and open beta data for Overwatch, Blizzard has now confirmed these dates as final.
An open beta will take place from 5-9 May. There’s a pre-purchase pre-order bonus where if the game is pre-ordered there’s early access to the beta for you and friend between 3-4 May. This offer is only available until 29 April.
“Overwatch is a team shooter for everyone, with deep, cooperative gameplay, fast and fun competitive action, and a diverse range of larger-than-life heroes,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We think PC and console players everywhere will have a great time in the game, and we’re excited to give everyone a chance to try Overwatch out for themselves ahead of its May 24 launch.”
