Overwatch2 was announced back at the 2019 BlizzCon, and fans have been eagerly waiting for a chance to experience the game ever since. Now, the chance to play is closer than ever: on April 26, 2022, the beta rollout for the OW 2 PvP Demo began.

What are the System Requirements for the OW2 PvP Beta?

Not every computer is capable of running the OW2 PvP Beta. As detailed in an article on the Blizzard website, the minimum requirements to run OW2 are as follows:

  1. Your operating system must be Windows 7, 8, or 10, 64-bit.
  2. Your processor must be an Intel Core i3 or an AMD Phenom X3 8650.
  3. Your GPU must be in the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 600 series or the AMD Radeon HD 7000 series.
  4. You must have 6GB of RAM.
  5. You must have 50GB of available space on your hard drive.
  6. You must have a broadband internet connection.
  7. You must have a minimum of a 1024 x 768 display resolution.

It's important to keep in mind that these are only the minimum requirements to be able to run the OW2 PvP beta. For optimal performance, different requirements are suggested. The recommended setup is as follows:

  1. Your operating system is Windows 10 64-bit.
  2. Your professor is an Intel Core i7 or AMD Ryzen 5.
