Blizzard shares an update on Overwatch 2, closed alpha PvP testing details
Slowly, but surely coming along
It’s been a bit of a long, winding road for Blizzard and Overwatch 2, but progress is being made. The team has shared another dev vlog to keep fans informed of what’s coming next, and there’s a few notable tidbits worth sharing.
First up, Blizzard is decoupling Overwatch 2’s PvP and PvE experiences from one another to get new PvP content to fans sooner. This means that right now, Blizzard will focus on sharing PvP details.
The closed alpha testing for Overwatch 2 PvP on PC begins today in select regions, then the first PvP Beta will begin in late April for PC in all regions. This first PvP Beta will include the most significant release since launch, and includes the following.
- New Damage Hero: Sojourn
- New Game Mode: Push
- 5v5 Multiplayer
- Hero Reworks
- 4 New Maps
