Blizzard hosts another Overwatch 2 beta later this month ahead of the game’s newly announced October release date for early access. The new beta starts on June 28 and will be available on Xbox, PlayStation and PC.
You can sign up for the beta from June 16, and that same day, Blizzard plans to share more details about what to expect in it. The company has already teased two tidbits: you can play as the new hero Junker Queen and there will be a new map to try out. An earlier closed beta started in April but was limited to PCs.
On Sunday, Blizzard announced that the PVP portion of Overwatch 2 is slated to release on October 4 and will be free to play, although it will be in early access to get started. The game has been a long time coming – it was first announced in 2019. We still don’t know when the PVE aspect of the game, which Blizzard is planning separate from PVPcould be released.
