Overwatch fans who have been waiting for a beta invite may soon get their wish with this weekend's invite-only beta event. As said on the notice, "a lot more players from our Americas and Europe gameplay regions" will be added to the test that runs through Monday, November 23rd.
The objective of the test is clear: Players will be stress testing server hardware and technology as well as getting a taste of what Overwatch is.
During the Beta Test Weekend, all 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, King’s Row, and Watchpoint: Gibraltar.
Since this is a stress test, we're primarily interested in your technical feedback, like how Overwatch runs on your system, your experience with the beta servers, critical bug reports, and other game-impacting problems. One of our goals is to push our hardware to the limit, so don't be surprised if you experience performance issues or run into unexpected downtime—that’s all part of the process.
