It's been years since Activision announced that it was working on Overwatch 2, the much-anticipated sequel to the popular online multiplayer game, but players are finally going to be given a chance to test out what could be in store for the upcoming game. Activision has begun its beta test for Overwatch 2, but unfortunately, not everyone who signs up will get a chance to play.
If you haven't already gotten an email notifying you that you're able to test the game, hope isn't lost just yet. The developers revealed on the beta's website that they'll be adding more players to the beta testing pool as needed, meaning you could be granted access to the game anytime before the test closes.
If you're looking to increase your chances of being able to test the game, you'll want to tune into any of the Twitch streams happening on April 27, as the developers will be granting certain viewers access to the game.
To be considered, you'll have to make sure that your Battle.net account is linked to your Twitch. If you haven't already done it, it can be done in just a few simple steps before you log onto a stream. Here's how to connect your Battle.net account to your Twitch.
