Blizzard Entertainment sets to launch their new franchise, Overwatch, in early summer. Join the Watch now.
Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch is set to arrive in stores May 24 for PC, PlayStation 4™, and Xbox One. There are three versions players can purchase either digitally or through preorder: Overwatch™ (PC only), Overwatch™:Origins Edition, and Overwatch™: Collector’s Edition.
Open Beta Access
When pre-purchasing Overwatch before April 29, a launch exclusive skin for Widowmaker will instantly be available as well Open Beta access for PC, PS4™, and Xbox One. Buyers will have early access to the Open Beta for themselves and a friend from May 3-4. Then everyone will have a chance to play free during the all-access Open Beta phase from May 5-9.
Pre-purchase the digital version of Overwatch or Overwatch: Origins Edition for PC via the Battle.net Shop. We’ll send two early-access keys (PC) to your Battle.net email address—one for you and one for a friend—before the Open Beta begins.
If you’ve already pre-purchased digitally through Battle.net, you’re good to go. We’ll send you two keys before the Open Beta early-access period gets started.
Pre-purchase or preorder any version of Overwatch at a participating retailer, and your retailer will give you two Open Beta early-access keys for your specific platform before the early access period begins—one key for you, and one for a friend. Distribution varies by retailer, so check with them for additional details.
