    Ever since we played it at BlizzCon last October, Blizzard's been completely silent about when exactly the wider public will be able to get its hands on its first-ever FPS. Today Blizzard revealed that an Overwatch closed beta will go live on the 27th, a few days before the start of BlizzCon 2015.

    Game Director Jeff Kaplan also said that a spectator mode and built-in voice chat will be ready for the beta's launch, the first time any Blizzard game has had the latter. The spectator mode, and the ability to make private games, means independently run competitions could potentially start right away, and Kaplan made it clear that Overwatch's competitive side is "super important to us."

    Nice! I mean on one hand it's another shooter but on the other it's Blizzard and they always seem to have some kind of special mix. Will be interesting to see how it goes.

    The game does look nice so that could be a problem. Usually minimum isn't actually minimum though so you could still be ok.

    Anything? Also does the fact the game may not be free-to-play lower your hype?

    Nope.

    That is what I thought too but apparently it's all just speculation, turns out Blizzard hasn't announced anything yet. I'm skeptical myself it wont be Free-to-Play... the cheapest pre-purchase is $39.99 so it wouldn't make sense for it to be a pay for game... I mean if it's gonna be buy-to-play why wouldn't you go with the standard $60. A sub doesn't make sense either as it's not gonna go over well if everyone pre-purchases and then they go surprise! monthly fees for everyone!. That said, a few large video game sites have commented they don't believe it will be a free-to-play game so I guess we'll see.

    Blizzard has announced that the Overwatch closed beta will resume on February 9. The second round of beta testing will feature an all-new progression system, a pair of new maps, a new game mode, and a number of Private Game updates including full AI matches.

    Players who were already part of the Overwatch beta last year will still have access when the game comes back online next week

    Yup, good idea. Since it will be a game you have to buy great idea to test it now to at least make sure it works. If it doesn't end up getting a demo (very likely will at some point if not at launch) but if it doesn't then it's also a good chance to try the game before you buy.

    I tried it and it feels a bit like Team Fortress 2 to me, which is a good thing but PvP games are just not for me.
