Pro players and select media have gotten their hands on the game, and now it’s time for to general public to play it again, ahead of the official Overwatch 2 release date for the full version of the game. Here we teach you how to get the Overwatch 2 beta so you can get access to test the game.

Overwatch 2 Beta details

In the Beta, round two, players will be able to pick the new tank hero Junker Queen. A brand new map will also be playable. We don’t know any additional details at this stage, however, in the livestream broadcast this Thursday, 16th June, at 6pm BST/7pm CEST/10am PT Blizzard will be divulging more info, including the planned live-service model and seasonal content plan.

How to sign up to Overwatch 2 beta

Like the previous Beta back in April to get the Overwatch 2 beta, you need to head to the game’s website and sign-up once registration opens on Thursday 16th June 2022. Follow the link and then click the opt-in button. It will then move your browser to the button to sign up. You will need to be logged into your appropriate Battle.net account to gain access to the PvP beta.

Players should start expecting beta invites at some point between when they sign-up and the date of the Beta itself on June 28th, so keep an eye on your Battle.net email to be alerted to your invite. Also, there are no keys for the beta. You need to be invited through this method only in order to get the Overwatch beta.

As it stands, it is only a PvP beta. Players will be able to test the PvP content early, including getting their hands on the reworked Doomfist and Orisa, along with trying out Sojourn and other PvP changes, including the new map and mode. If you’re interested in PvE coming Overwatch 2, there is going to be a separate PvE beta sometime in the future. Signing up for the beta through the method said above should also flag your account for that beta too. If not, we will update the article when Blizzard releases more information on the PvE Overwatch 2 beta.

To all those signing up for the Overwatch 2 PvP beta, may Blizzard bless your account with access.
