Announced in the video, players will have a chance to access the Overwatch 2 Open Beta by viewing the Overwatch League over the weekend. They’re celebrating the fifth season of the Overwatch League by handing out 1500 Overwatch 2 Beta Keys per hour. The event is occurring on YouTube. To make use of this opportunity, Click the Rewards button towards to bottom. Make sure the viewers YouTube account is connected to their BattleNet account. Then, watch the stream for a chance to gain the exclusive rewards!
Note, the connected email must be the account that players use for Overwatch. In addition, the base Overwatch game must be already be purchased on PC.
There are alternative ways for gaining access to the Beta. Another way is by using the link here. Once again, this requires players to have their email for their BattleNet account on hand. It’s not necessarily a guaranteed method, but it’s definitely worth a try.
The Game Haus staff members all highly recommend giving the Overwatch 2 Beta a try. Though the game is definitely still in testing phases, for players who enjoy Overwatch already, it’s a fantastic attempt towards rejuvenating the franchise. Do keep in mind, Overwatch 2 is a “true beta”, and not a demo or vertical slice. There may be bugs, and not all visuals are final. Treat the article as an analysis of the beta, not the final game.
