Overwatch Beta Test This Weekend

Blizzard announced today that it will be conducting an invitation-only beta test weekend for Overwatch from Friday through Monday. The company says it will also be opening up the beta to more players for the three day event.

To help us get the most out of this testing phase, we will be flagging accounts for the Beta Test Weekend a little early, during a scheduled maintenance on Thursday, November 19. We encourage all new recruits to use this additional time to download and install the beta client so you can be ready for action once servers come back online. If you're selected to participate in this Beta Test Weekend, you'll see an Install button appear in the Overwatch tab of your desktop app as well as an Overwatch Beta license in the YOUR GAME ACCOUNTS section of Account Management.
