Last month, Blizzard announced that the Overwatch beta would be returning in February with a brand new game mode, some new maps and an all-new progression system. The beta’s return will also mark the next wave of invites for those still looking to get access and now it looks like we don’t have much longer to wait as Blizzard has confirmed that Overwatch will be coming back next week.
Next Tuesday, on the 9th of February Overwatch, will be playable once again and aside from the other new features, there will also be updates made to private matches and AI bots.
Those who are already in the beta will be able to play straight away and more details including full patch notes are expected to arrive at launch. You can sign up for the beta at Battle Net though you might be waiting a while as Blizzard is sending invites in monthly waves.
You can pre-order Overwatch already through Battle Net as well but this will not grant you beta access.
KitGuru Says: I’m still waiting to get into the Overwatch beta myself but from what I’ve seen, the game seems to be shaping up quite nicely. Are any of you in the Overwatch beta yet? How are you finding it?
