The Overwatch Beta Finally Gets a Release Date.

Blizzard, Blizzard, Blizzard. Boy oh boy do they know how to tease. I’m pretty sure if you look up the word tease, Blizzard Entertainment would be mentioned. After months of gameplay videos, character reveals, and telling everyone that the beta is coming “soon,” (thats another Blizzard word that can be looked up) we finally have a release date for the hotly anticipated team based shooter. That date is October 27th, which is not to far from now!

Unfortunately, it is a closed beta to begin with. Blizzard will pick a select few to participate in the beta, but there is hope for those who may not be that lucky. There will be stress test held only on weekends, eventually so many other people can try it out as well. As of now, there is no word on when the open beta will start. I’m sure that will start “soon.”

I have been signed up since registration opened late last year so I will keep my fingers crossed in hopes that I get in. If you are not signed up, you can sign up here and pray to Blizzard that you get in.

Overwatch Still Looks Great

Blizzard uploaded a new video to YouTube today from their upcoming team based shooter, Overwatch. It features the dual wielding, overly enthusiastic, death bringer himself, Reaper.

The footage is from an early build of the game, but it looks great nonetheless. The player goes on a rampage while showcasing some of Reaper’s abilities, such as his Ultimate Ability Death Blossom. Check out the video below.

Overwatch’s beta takes place this Fall and you can sign up here. The launch happens sometime in 2016.
