You may have heard that the Overwatch 2 first Beta round has started. If you want to get in on the action, here are the steps on how to play Overwatch 2 Beta.
If you get into the beta, you can choose to play one of your favorite reworked heroes or take the newest member of the team, Sojourn, for a spin. Combat your way across a slew of new maps, 5v5 multiplayer, and a new push mode before anyone else, and don’t forget to let us know what you think!
1. Opt Into the Overwatch 2 Beta
First, go to the Overwatch 2 Beta Opt-in webpage. You may have already opted in, but double check to make sure that you are! Simply sign into your Battle Net account here and you will be signed up, if you weren’t already.
2. Check Your Email To See If You’ve Been Accepted
Make sure you check your promotions / spam email as well as your main inbox in case you have an email from Blizzard Entertainment, Inc called “You’re In! Welcome to the first Overwatch 2 PvP Beta!”. The following image shows exactly what you should see within the email. There is no action needed within the email itself. If you aren’t sure if you received the email, you can check the status in step 3 below.
3. Check your Battle.net Blizzard App For Overwatch Beta
If you are logged in, you should be able to find Overwatch on the listed games. If you do not see it, click the “Plus” sign and add Overwatch.
Once you click on Overwatch, you can use the drop down on the “Game Version” to find “Overwatch 2 Tech Beta” If you do not see the Tech Beta in the list, you are not yet accepted into the beta and will have to wait until you are.
