Blizzard Invites All to Try Out ‘Overwatch’ During Open Beta Phase This Week

Following a recent closed beta period, Blizzard Entertainment are extending the opportunity for everyone to try out their team-based first-person shooter:¬†Overwatch. The Open Beta period will begin on March 5th 2016, and shall conclude on May 9th 2016. Those who have already pre-purchased or pre-ordered a copy of Overwatch on any platform will be able to dive into this test right now. For those left waiting… the countdown¬†has begun and fortunately isn’t too far away.

This open beta doesn’t seem to have much to hide, as it supposedly grants access to all of the game’s maps, heroes and game modes. This isn’t a bad opportunity to develop your skills before the fun really begins later this month. Just don’t expect your progress to carry over to the final game, as there will be a wipe before launch.

Developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment, Overwatch is set for release on the Windows PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One gaming platforms starting May 24th 2016.
