Overwatch 2 beta: Here’s how to sign up and take part

Sign up for a chance to play Overwatch 2 early

Overwatch 2 is currently undergoing a closed testing period for Blizzard employees, Overwatch League pros and “other select groups,” according to Activision Blizzard. You can sign up for a chance to take part in a closed beta that’s scheduled to start in April, though.

“This closed beta will include a larger group of testers who we will ask to provide gameplay feedback,” wrote Overwatch game director Aaron Keller. “Our goal for this phase is to test our new features, content and systems before we shift to stress-testing the servers with a wider player base in future Beta tests.”

All you need to do is head over to the official Overwatch website and enter your information for the chance to gain early access to Overwatch 2.

“Players will be granted access in phases, and we will add more and more players as we progress through the upcoming beta phases,” Keller added. “We will also be sharing regular updates about what to expect in this first beta in the weeks leading up until its launch.”

Overwatch 2’s first testing phase began on March 10 and will run through April. The first closed beta will pick up around then and include more players. The closed beta will include four maps, a new damage hero, the new Push gameplay mode and 5v5 gameplay.

You could get the chance to play alongside Overwatch League players, too. Activision Blizzard announced the league will start on an early build of Overwatch 2 when it kicks off on May 5. Players from around the league will need as much practice as they can get so you may see them in some public lobbies.
