Overwatch Release Date, Beta Details
If you're amped for Blizzard's latest, this will make your day.
The developer has officially announced the release date for its anticipated multiplayer FPS Overwatch, along with a beta test. The beta and the full launch will be awfully close together, too.
The beta will run May 5-9 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC and if you pre-order the game, you can start testing it out on May 3. You can even invite a friend if you like. This beta will feature the full roster of available characters, so you'll be able to sample all 21 distinct fighters. Unfortunately, anything you earn - skins, rewards, levels, etc. - will not carry over to the full game, though it's interesting to note that PS4 players don't need a PlayStation Plus subscription to try the beta. You'll need it to play online after launch, though.
