Overwatch Confirms Beta Test Weekend November 20-23

This weekend, we’re inviting a new batch of heroes to a special three-day skirmish!

From Friday, November 20 through Monday, November 23, we’ll be conducting our first invitation-only Beta Test Weekend. During this three-day event, we’ll be opening up Overwatch beta (for a limited time) to a lot more players from our Americas and Europe gameplay regions.

The objective: help us stress test our server hardware and technology . . . and make a few Plays of the Game in the process.

DEPLOYMENT SCHEDULE

Our first Beta Test Weekend will begin on Friday, November 20 at 9:00 a.m. PST and end on Monday, November 23 at 9:00 a.m. PST.

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.

MISSION DETAILS

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.
For more information about our Beta Test Weekend you can find a full FAQ and additional details at the following blog.
Overwatch will be launching for Windows PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Spring 2016.
