Overwatch Open Beta Extended

The open beta for Overwatch has been extended by 24 hours, Blizzard has announced.

Blizzard has extended the open beta of Overwatch for 24 hours.

In a post made on Battle.net, Community Manager Lylirra thanked the “millions” of players who have partacipated in the beta so far.

“We hope everyone has been enjoying the Overwatch Open Beta. We certainly have! We’ve loved being able to play alongside you on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Over the last week, we’ve also had the opportunity to listen to your thoughts and opinions on the game; make improvements based on your reports in these very forums; and collect invaluable data just from you playing normally,” Lylirra wrote.

We couldn’t be more grateful. So, as a small way of saying “thank you” to our community and the millions of players who’ve logged in so far, we will be extending the Open Beta by 1 day on all platforms. This means the beta will now conclude on May 10 at 10:00 a.m. PDT in all regions.”

That means that, for UK players, you can continue to play Overwatch until around 6pm tomorrow on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Don’t get too attached to all of those unlocks, however – Blizzard has confirmed that it will be resetting all progress prior to the game’s worldwide launch on May 24th.
