Bilzzard’s foray into the first-person shooter genre Overwatch will hit stores later this spring, but interested players can take part in the game early thanks to an upcoming open beta.
The company announced Monday that Overwatch will arrive on the PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on May 24. The game has previously entered a closed beta form and will have an open beta from May 5-9. Anyone who pre-orders the game will also be able to play on May 3 and 4.
Overwatch lets players choose from 21 hero characters in various game modes. Depending on the chosen heroes, players have different roles in combat while completing the objectives in the game’s modes like Point Capture and Control.
