Instead of ending today, the Overwatch open beta will now conclude tomorrow, May 10, at 10am PT/1pm ET, Blizzard announced.
Revealing that millions of people have already played the open beta, Blizzard discussed the extension, which applies to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC:
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.
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.
The open beta includes Overwatch’s full roster of heroes, maps, and launch-day features, but it doesn’t have Competitive Play as Blizzard is working on improving it.
Will you be using the extra day to play more Overwatch before the full game releases on May 24?
