When Does the Overwatch 2 PVP Beta Begin?

The Overwatch 2 PVP Beta is mere hours away. On Tuesday April 26, players across the world will slowly gain access to the highly anticipated sequel to Overwatch. The initial Beta releases a week before the start of the fifth season of the Overwatch League. Players have submitted their requests to gain entry into the exclusive Beta, but fans are wondering – what time will those lucky few know that they have gained access? Luckily, the Overwatch team made an announcement on Monday April 25 that would ease the minds of all the expecting players.

Those lucky few that have select invitations will have access to the game right out of the gate at 2pm EST, 11am PST.Β Β As the day progresses, more players will get their chance to join the Beta and get into some games of Overwatch 2.

On the following day, the Overwatc team will host the Beta Bash Livestream on Twitch. The livestream will feature content creators squaring off against one another as they show off the new look of Overwatch. The livestream will feature appearances from Overwatch League casters and hosts who will interview members of the Overwatch team to talk about the beta launch.

Players will also have the chance to earn beta keys through the week by tuning into select Twitch streamers. Viewers can earn drops that will contain an Overwatch 2 Beta key. Once a player earns that drop, they are all set to go and join in the fun. Only users that have synced up their Battle.Net account with Twitch will be eligible for the drops.
