Blizzard announces beta testing for Overwatch 2
It has been a long time since Overwatch 2 was announced. However, the old news set has materialized with Blizzard's announcement earlier in the evening.
Via the official Twitter handle, the developers have announced that Overwatch 2's PVP beta phase will begin soon. They have also given out the steps by which players will register themselves to be a part of the beta testing. Players can go here to get themselves registered.
Additionally, there is more exciting news for all the fans. The heroes of Overwatch have created a cult following in the gaming community. As per the official news, there will be new heroes and maps in the sequel, and they'll be present in the beta phase.
A new hero named Sojourn will be starting his Overwatch journey with the beta phase. There will also be four new maps available to all the players. Everyone's favorite 5v5 mode, which is essentially a staple of the game, will naturally be present.
Curiously enough, there's a new mode called 'push,' and not much is known about it. Developers have also mentioned a new ping system.
Additionally, some existing heroes like Orisa, Doomfist, Bastion, and Sombra will be changing. The PVP beta kickoffs in late April and players should be quick to sign up for all the upcoming things. The PVP beta will likely have limited access to ensure a smooth server experience.
