If you’re like me, you spent a lot of your free time this past weekend ripping through the Overwatch open beta. It was supposed to end today, but fans can celebrate a small extension.
Blizzard Community Manager Lylirra took to the Battle.net forums to announce that Overwatch‘s open beta has been extended a full day on all platforms. It will now end on May 10 at 10am PT in all regions around the world. That’s 24 hours of bonus time, whether it was always planned or not.
That’s pretty awesome, I say. Most that I’ve spoken with have said that Overwatch has been a fantastic ride during its open beta phase. I know the beta has even pushed some towards pre-purchasing the game, and that comes from folks who rarely, if ever, pre-order.
If you’ve been playing Overwatch, enjoy your extra day of open beta goodness. If you haven’t yet, give it a download and roll a bit tonight before Blizzard flips the switch tomorrow morning.
Overwatch will sell for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 24, 2016. We’ll have more on the game as it comes.
