Overwatch opens up all heroes for final closed beta weekend

    
26
I guess this is sought.

Gotta play them all! If you’ve been itching to try out any specific Overwatch hero, this weekend might be your chance. On Friday and Saturday, Blizzard is inviting even more players to help stress the servers during a final beta test weekend, and for 36 hours all 21 heroes will be open and available for play. Testers will be battling it out on three maps: Hanamura, Route 66, and Nepal.

Invited accounts will start getting flagged on Thursday afternoon, and players can download and be ready without missing one moment of the limited time. (Blizzard warns that emailed invitations may be slow to arrive, so players are better off watching for the install button to appear on the Overwatch tab of their Battle.net desktop app or for the Overwatch Beta license in the “Your Game Accounts” section of Battle.net account management.) The fun will then start at 12:00 p.m. EDT on Friday, April 15th, and last until 12:00 a.m. on Sunday, April 17th.

PizzaDoh Gendou Actually, this is the exact wording that the studio itself said and stressed, for those who properly read the official announcement that is linked: “During the Beta Test Weekend, all invited players (including those currently in the Closed Beta) will have access to the full roster of 21 heroes and a limited selection of maps: Hanamura, Route 66, and Nepal.”

I have an Install button on my Overwatch tab for the first time ever. Greyed out for now but it’s supposed to start allowing people to pre-load sometime today. Whee. I missed out on the last closed beta.

Armsbend Skyewauker Rumm Sorenthaz Yeah base is $40 but Origins Edition is $60 which comes with goodies across their games which I’m always a sucker for.

Oh, how times have changed . You’ve been conditioned to think that’s crazy, but that’s how it was for a long time.

No 21:9 support, no buy. Seriously Blizzard, get with the times.

Deuter Gendou Because they weren’t yet created/finished. All the characters have been ready since the beta that started early this year, and I’m pretty sure the previous beta ended shortly after they added the last 3.

Gendou I don’t think MJ plays or keeps up with overwatch…or reads properly.

Not quite sure what kind of poor filler text attempt this was, but it’s spreading not-true information.

Skyewauker Rumm Sorenthaz The base game is $40 not $60 fyi.  Unless we are talking consoles – which would be ridiculous to talk about consoles.

I just wish they toned the particle effects down a notch, too much flashy shit going on in game.
