Developer Blizzard Entertainment has made two important announcements for their upcoming team shooter Overwatch
. As well as the release date, Blizzard also revealed that there will be an open beta before said release date.
First up, the open beta. We'll let game director Jeff Kaplan go into the finer points, but the main details are thus: all 21 heroes are playable and it takes place from May 5th to May 9th, unless you have pre-ordered the game, in which case you and a friend get two days early access to the open beta.
Now to the other important announcement, the release date for which Blizzard has made a trailer.
As seen in the trailer, Overwatch
will release on Xbox One on May 24th.
