Blizzard last year had discussed its plans to launch a closed beta for Overwatch 2 and had even launched a site for letting users sign up for this beta as soon as it was live, it crashed and that is something that upset a lot of users.
Now the developer team has decided to share with people the details of the game and the various things that are coming for the players and what it means for them. There is also a definite date for the release of the beta, April 26.
#Overwatch2 PVP Beta is coming April 26.

How to Sign Up for The Beta?
Now obviously the most part is signing up for the beta. The beta tester selection will be done based on the quota per geographical area. There are a lot of people who will miss out on this beta as to be a beta tester you need to be on a PC only and you need to own a copy of Overwatch 1 prior to signing up. The selection will also be on the hardware specs of your PC too.
Steps to Sign Up for The Beta
- Visit the Blizzard website
- On the website click on the opt-in button
- Once you opt-in you will then be re-directed to sign in to your account.
If you do not meet the requirements or do not get selected for the beta testing then you need not worry as Blizzard will soon be releasing alternate ways for people to join the expanded beta testing soon.
System Requirements for Overwatch 2
Now the system requirements for a game reveal a lot more about the game than most people realize. The system requirements tell us how graphically modern and intensive a game will be and how detailed will the environments of the game be. Today, most modern games have intensively detailed environments that allow the player to be more engaged in the game.
System Requirements for Overwatch 2 Beta
The minimum system requirements for Overwatch 2 Beta are almost similar to the recommended specs for Overwatch 1 which goes to show how much has the game evolved with respect to the graphics quality and game dynamics.
The beta will require the players to have at least the Nvidia GeForce GTX 600 series or AMD Radeon HD 7000 GPU and 6GB of RAM to target 30fps on minimum settings. As far as the recommended settings go, the players will need to have a Core i7 or Ryzen 5 series CPU, GTX 1060 or AMD R9 380 graphics card, and 8GB of RAM to get 60fps on minimum settings.
Changes Coming with The Launch
The launch of the beta brings a lot of changes to the game that will change how the game is perceived by the players and how entertaining it is. The developers in a twitch stream discussed reworking the 5v5 format and making it a 6v6. The developers also address ping issues and glitches that will be fixed soon.
The beta launch will also let people choose Sojourn as a hero. Sojourn is the first black woman on the game’s roaster and is a hero that people have been excited to choose for their matches.
There is also a talk about separating the PvP element of the game from the PvE element which was discussed in a recent update.
