Overwatch 2 closed beta is coming to PC next month
Monitor 2 is getting a closed beta for its PvP mode next month. A developer update video released today provided a slew of new details about the upcoming game and its upcoming beta.
Players and community members can sign up now for the closed beta, which will take place at the end of April. The closed beta will include a new damage hero named Soujourn, the new Push game mode, 5v5 multiplayer, several hero reworks, and four new maps.
In the developer update, game director Aaron Keller explained that the development team is “decoupling” Monitor 2from player versus player mode to its player versus enemy mode in order to give the community faster access to multiplayer PvP modes. He apologized for the lack of meaningful content posted in Monitoring during the development of its sequel and for the silence that followed the announcement of Monitor 2.
According to Keller, the team is looking to build on what has made Monitoring awesome by expanding its communication systems, refining its combat and hero balance, and introducing entirely new game modes to Overwatch 2.
Before the closed beta, a closed alpha will take place starting today. Blizzard employees, professional Overwatch League players, and a handful of others will be the first to test Monitor 2the new systems, features, and tweaks of before a wider group of players have access to them in the beta. Keller promised regular updates ahead of the game’s release and reiterated the team’s commitment to providing quality PvP and PvE experiences for players for a long time to come.
