Overwatch 2 recently had more of its details announced, with another beta test open for players to enjoy. Overwatch 2 will be free to play on all platforms launching on October 4. Before that though, there's a closed beta for Overwatch 2 players to enjoy. This guide will let you know how to join the beta.
The beta sign-ups are now closed, but if you got in within the time period, you should be able to access the game right now. There will be a lot of new features, such as the ability to play as the new hero Junker Queen, a hero players have been waiting for since the original Overwatch.
When Did The Overwatch 2 Closed Beta Start?
The closed Beta started officially on June 28, 2022. There's a new map for players to enjoy, plus the Junker Queen operator. The sign-ups opened on June 16, 2022, but have since closed. As such, if you didn't sign up for the beta during that period, your only option to get in now is to pre-order the game.
The new beta was announced in an Overwatch 2 live stream on June 16, which you can catch below. From details on the new maps and character to another look at gameplay, it's a valuable watch if you didn't manage to get access to this beta.
Overwatch 2 Beta Tracker
Your Overwatch 2 beta tracker is the attachment you'll be sent by Blizzard if you were successful in getting access to this beta. The new early access phase is available on all major consoles as well as PC, so your tracker will come attached to the platform of your choice. If you participated in the Twitch Drops method for gaining access, you should be able to access it again. Equally, if you purchased the Watch Point pack, you should get your tracker to play this current beta, too.
