The Overwatch closed beta was finally announced this week, and the action will commence on October 27th. If you're one of the lucky few who makes the cut, you'll need to know the game's basics before diving into its stunning futuristic world of guns and glory.
Not everyone will be playing Overwatch right away. Some people will be forced to wait until the announced open beta weekends, which haven't been given dates just yet. If you have to wait that long to join the fun, you'll definitely need a recap to get caught up to speed. The video below covers enough to get you started. See how to sign up, get a feel for the world, discover the game modes, and learn your role.
The beta can't get here soon enough! I'd sell at least one kidney to make sure I'm in the first round of invites, and I don't think I'm alone. Absolutely everything about Overwatch looks incredible. The art design is stunning, the graphics are crisp and gorgeous, and the gameplays looks frenetic and fun in a wonderful way. I can't wait any longer!
