The upcoming Overwatch 2 has uncovered the dates of its closed beta, which will be accessible on PC, and for the first time on PlayStation and Xbox consoles. Overwatch 2 was announced at Blizzcon in 2019 and, with the exception of the initial uncover, new information about the sequel has been sparse. The first beta for the game took place recently and had limited access. This beta lasted three weeks and saw blended reception from fans, with many concerned Overwatch 2 is too similar to its predecessor.

Another trailer for Overwatch 2 recently debuted during the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase as part of Summer Games Fest 2022. The large uncover at long last gave fans another gander at the game, alongside a host of new details on its future. The trailer contained several updates and announcements, including new legend designs, an October 4 release date, and the perhaps surprising news that Overwatch 2's multiplayer will be allowed to play. Junker Queen, another legend who had been implied in the first game, was also uncovered. The character will be one of several new heroes fans will get to play as, and the spotlight confirmed Overwatch 2's Junker Queen is a Tank who uses battle axes and guns.

The next closed beta for Overwatch 2 will start on June 28 as indicated by an Overwatch announcement on Twitter, and fans can figure out additional details and sign-up starting tomorrow, June 16. This beta will incorporate access to Junker Queen and another guide, and keeping in mind that PC players will get to try the game in the future, the new closed beta marks the first time PlayStation and Xbox owners can test it out. Nintendo Switch is the only platform excluded from the upcoming closed beta.

As Overwatch 2's newest legend, Junker Queen has been the focus of Blizzard's marketing during this year's Summer Games Fest. One of the most significant differences between Overwatch 2 and its predecessor is the job of Tank heroes in a team's dynamic. Team sizes have been diminished from six to five with the second tank getting sidelined. Because of this change, the developers of the game made tanks more aggressive and brutish. Doomfist's shift from DPS to Tank is another indication of how the job is being emphasized.










It's exciting that Overwatch 2 is getting another beta - especially one that console players can participate with. Ideally, with the announcement of sign-ups and the inclusion of PlayStation and Xbox owners, more individuals will actually want to check the game out, stress the servers out a little bit, and get a vibe for the contrast between the sequel and the first. The Nintendo Switch being left out of the beta odd because it is the only platform that Overwatch 2 will be releasing on that isn't being invited to the party, though its truly possible this is down to the limitations of the console. Fans can figure out additional details on the Overwatch 2 beta before long.
