You will not miss a thing over my watch

The beta for Overwatch 2 kicks off the moment and we'll be keeping you posted on all of the action as it goes live.

Activision Blizzard is giving suckers the chance to dive into the PvP portion of Overwatch 2 ahead of its launch. The devs get to stress test their waiters while players get a taste of the new 5v5 multiplayer format.

The Overwatch 2 beta kicks off moment, April 26, from 11 am PT/ 2 pm ET/ 7 pm BST for PC players only. There are a couple of ways to get beta access over a coming couple of days. People who inked up will find out if they made the cut via a dispatch when the beta goes live. Not a nanosecond ahead.

Still, guaranteed access is being granted hereafter, April 27, If your inbox is sorrowfully bereft of invites. There is a caveat, however, which involves watching select Twitch pennants for an aggregate of four hours.

You also need to enjoy Overwatch so make sure you have the game downloaded and installed so you are ready to go if you are one of the chosen.


European players who did not get an invite should try and checking their games in the drop-down. You may have access to the Overwatch 2 beta and not indeed realize it.

Redditors in the region are reporting that they've access but their emails have not come through yet.

"EU, did not get correspondence, did not work with update button, was available later to renew of the launcher," said one.

"I had the exact same thing, the emails are delayed compared to when you're granted access," added a mod.

So indeed if all of your dispatch flyers are empty, renew the launcher to see if you have any luck.


Some donors of the Overwatch 2 beta invites are reporting they are unfit to get in. However, do not horrify!
If you are also seeing the communication below.

" have possessed OW since before it came out, I-ordered as soon as you were suitable to. I've OW1 installed and I can play it fine, but the OW2 Beta says' Account missing Overwatch License'," lamented the Redditor who participated in the screenshot below.

A mod waded in to explain that this is simply a bug that is reared its head" because of how the beta is being rolled out."

They go on to say that Activision Blizzard is" giving access to the game person after a person so you'll have to stay as this is anticipated and there's no workaround.

"If you have this error you just have to stay and also you will be suitable to log in."

A number of other druggies chimed in say that they are seeing the same communication, but the OP came back to confirm that it was just a temporary glitch.

"After an hour of retrying, it eventually worked for me and let me in."

So if you've banged up against the same issue, just keep on trying. It should sort itself out ultimately.


While Activision Blizzard told suckers that invites were being transferred out as soon as the beta went live, there is still a chance to get in the moment. A Redditor posted a screenshot from the Blizzard forum that will give a stopgap to those of you who did not get your golden ticket.

"As a friendly memorial everyone, the dispatch invites will go out in swells and will take several hours to complete the entire original list of people named to play. Please be patient!" says WyomingMyst."

"Remember to check both your spam and creation flyers on your dispatch customer. The dispatch will come from the dispatch address. Indeed if you don't get the dispatch, your BattleNet app launcher will modernize with the beta customer in the game interpretation list if you're named. So try resuming the app launcher on occasion and check there."

The stoner is part of the Blizzard forum MVP program and is a believable source for all Overwatch tidbits.

They note that lots of people have had their dispatch invites delayed" from the time the account is actuated." So check all of your flyers – you might be among the chosen Overwatch 2 beta actors!


TechRadar Gaming's attendant's editor, Patrick Dane, is streaming the Overwatch 2 PvP beta now over on his Twitch channel pixellogicttv. Competitive shooters are his chuck and adulation so if you want to get an idea of how the beta handles, head over there and ask him for his expert opinion!


Activision Blizzard has participated in the full Overwatch 2 patch notes and they are expansive! Lots of Idol changes, new features, and general tweaks then and there.

23:55:45 - April 26, 2022

Activision Blizzard has released a list of patch notes that detail changes between the original game and the PvP beta. The highlights then include the new Ping system, and Scoreboard.

The Scoreboard screen now displays crucial stats for all players in real-time, including eliminations and deaths. The layout echoes that of" other competitive games and sports" and should give you a better and more accurate overview as you play.

The knock-on effect is that the Fire and Order systems are being scrapped. The new Scoreboard makes it gratuitous for now, but the devs say that they'll readdress the system at some point down the line. More so for the" excitement and positive feedback" it provides.
