The Overwatch 2 PvP Beta is currently on everyone’s lips. Although the question of differences with Overwatch 1 still seems to be omnipresent, Blizzard’s hero shooter IP is currently enjoying extreme popularity again. As part of the beta launch, the Overwatch category on Twitch broke an all-time record of over 1.5 million concurrent viewers.
This value was not reached even when part 1 was released. But as great as the interest in Overwatch 2 is, the closed beta version, as the name suggests, is still not reaching all computers. While there was a one-night chance of getting guaranteed access through cumulative watch time on Twitch.tv, it was only an eight-hour window during which you had to spend four hours on specially selected Overwatch 2 channels.
So if you didn’t have the time to do it right now and you weren’t lucky enough to be selected and notified by email via the beta subscription in your account, you still come up empty handed. Now there is a new opportunity to continue to have access to the Overwatch 2 PvP Closed Beta.
Launch of OWL as a new beta access opportunity
Blizzard recently announced that beta access will be granted again as part of the Overwatch League kickoff on May 5, 2022. The associated stream will take place this time on YouTube and will begin on Thursday at 9 p.m. Every hour, 1,500 keys will be randomly distributed. beta to all viewers who have linked their YouTube account to their Battle.net account in the YouTube stream at the start of OWL.
As with the Twitch Drop event, this connection is absolutely necessary. Also, the competition is likely to be significantly less than it would be with a Twitch live stream. However, 1,500 hits per hour among all viewers promise a fairly low chance of success. With a little (more) luck, you can still get into the Overwatch 2 beta, which is currently planned to stay active until May 17, 2022.
