Blizzard Entertainment has announced the start date for Overwatch 2 beta testing. You can try out the long-awaited sequel to the tactical shooter on April 26th.

Curious about what the developers have in store for Overwatch 2's first PvP beta?

A new era of heroes begins. We invite you to apply for the Closed Beta, divided into several stages, so that you can help us bring the new version of Overwatch to perfection. The first phase will begin on April 26 and will give you a chance to get an early look at the huge amount of content that is about to be released.

You can apply for participation in the Overwatch 2 closed beta testing on the official website of the game. Note that the developers did not specify the specific timing of the Overwatch 2 beta test.

In their statement, the developers promised fans a new hero Sojourn, four new maps, character rework and a signal system.

Recall that Overwatch 2 was first presented in 2019 at BlizzCon 2019. However, in the future, Blizzard Entertainment postponed the release of the game several times, which is probably due to internal scandals in the company.
