The Overwatch 2 closed beta is set to start next month. Here's how you can sign up to play.

After a long wait, Activision Blizzard finally revealed that the Overwatch 2 closed beta would be coming soon. There'll be a number of closed betas rolled out, with the first one set to kick off in late April.

Those who take part will be able to get the first hands-on glimpse at all of the features the developers have been working on, including new hero Sojourn. Players have so far been left in the dark regarding Sojourns abilities, knowing only that she appears to wield a railgun.

Players will also be able to get stuck into some of Overwatch 2's new maps: Circuit Royale (Escort Map), Midtown (Hybrid Map), New Queen Street (Push Map), and Colloseo (Push Map). Some of the new hero reworks will also be available to test out, these are for Orisa, Doomfist, Bastion, and Sombra.

So, how can players sign-up to the closed beta?

How to Sign Up to the Overwatch 2 Closed Beta

To sign-up, players will need to head to the Overwatch website and ensure they're logged in with their Battle.net account. Head to the bottom of the page and click the "Sign Up Now" button.

It's important to note that the site will have seen a lot of traffic these past new days, meaning it might take a few attempts before players are signed up successfully. Players who successfully sign-up will receive a message saying so, while others will need to come back and try again after some time has passed.

Blizzard have already announced that they're continuing to scale the sign-up owing to demand, asking players to just check back later for more success.
