Posted October 23, 2018 09:50:33The beta of Overwatch is set to start at 10 a.m.
PDT (12 p.m., EDT) on Monday, October 23.
The beta is only available in select areas, so it’s best to start getting into the game as soon as possible.
In the meantime, you can check out a few of the screenshots we’ve collected over the past couple of days.
For those who are still on the fence, here are the main features that we’re expecting to see.
We’re expecting the game to support up to four players at once, which will likely be the case for the first time in the beta.
As mentioned, the first two Overwatch characters to be available for use in the game will be Mei and D.
There will be more characters and items available to play with, so we’ll see how the game develops in the weeks to come.
While the beta has a limited number of characters available, Blizzard is also going to be running a limited event.
The event will feature a variety of new heroes and modes, including three modes that are completely new.
The Overwatch Heroes Arena, which you can play for free, will feature six players in four different maps.
Players can earn credits by winning matches, but players can also play in one of four different game modes: the Overwatch Challenge, the Overwatch Showdown, and the Overwatch Battle Royale.
The Heroes Arena will be available until October 24, and we’ll have a more detailed breakdown of the mode available to the public when the beta begins.
For now, we’ll focus on the Heroes Arena and its new heroes, as well as the mode itself.
The Overwatch Battle Rivalry mode will have five maps available to use in it, with the first map set to be played in the middle of the day.
There’s also a new mode called “Team Battle Royale,” which is available to everyone at the time of this writing.
The final mode available in the Overwatch beta is called the “Overwatch Challenge,” which has six teams in four maps.
Each map features a different hero, and it features an “Ultimate” mode that is unlocked upon completing a round.
The mode has been tested in a limited test and is expected to launch at some point this week.
As for the game’s modes, the “Ultimate Overwatch Challenge” mode is going to feature the following:The Overwatch Challenge mode features six maps:Two maps: A three-team map (two players per team)Two maps featuring a two-player map: A five-player game mode with a respawn timer (one minute)A three-player “Ultimate Game” map: This map has a respawn time of one minuteThe Overwatch Showdown map features six teams:Six teams in five maps: Five teams each with two players each.
Four maps with an extra map on each side of the map: Four maps each with a “Ultimate Mode” map that is only playable in the “Challenge” mode (not “Ultimate Challenge” maps).
The Overwatch Classic map features five maps and five maps in the final map:Five maps featuring an extra one on each team: Five maps each in the main map with two-person maps and an extra “Ultimate Map” map.
The “Ultimate Classic” map is going for $3.99, which is a slight price increase over the “Classic” map’s $3, but it’s not worth noting here.
If you’re not into the “classic” mode, the other maps will also be free.
If you’re on a PC, you should be able to download the game right now and start playing on October 23 at 10:00 a.mi.
PDT/11:00 p.mi., EDT.
Blizzard will be rolling out the game in its beta mode on PC on October 24 at 10 am PT/11 am EDT.
We’ll keep you updated on all the Overwatch news as we get closer to the official launch of the beta and more details emerge about the game.
