If you’re looking to get your hands on the Overwatch 2 Beta, you’ll need to link your Twitch and Battle.net accounts.
Right now, the Overwatch 2 Beta is in full flow, and players are enjoying Blizzard’s hero shooter like never before. At its core, Overwatch 2 isn’t too different from its predecessor, albeit with a few major changes.
First of all, players will now take part in 5v5 action, with just one tank per team. As such some characters are getting major reworks already in Overwatch 2!
Already, fans are starting to get invites to the Overwatch 2 Beta through their emails. But if you weren’t so lucky, you can at least get a guaranteed Overwatch 2 drop through Twitch today!
How to Link Twitch Account to Blizzard Battle.net Guide
To link your Twitch account to Battle.net and be in with a chance at getting an Overwatch 2 Beta key, here’s what you need to do:
- First, make sure you have a Twitch account setup.
- Then, head to the Twitch Connections page on your account.
- Here, you can click Connect near Blizzard Battle.net, and sign into your Blizzard account.
- Once done, you’ll see a small green tick next to the Blizzard logo on the Connections page, alongside your account name.
- Now, simply tune into one of these streamers between 10 AM PT – 6 PM PT today, April 27.
After watching the stream for 4 hours, you’ll receive a free Overwatch 2 Beta Key! But this appears to be your only chance to nab one via Twitch.
Right now, there’s a possible fix for those still waiting for their Beta invites too.
But after playing a few hours of the game ourselves, we can attest that Overwatch’s player base is still as toxic as ever in Overwatch 2.
