Overwatch 2 Closed Beta – How to Get Invited via Twitch Drops

New details for the upcoming Overwatch 2 Closed Beta have just dropped, including how players can get Beta invites through Twitch Drops!

To do so, you’ll need to sign-up for the Closed Beta via the official Overwatch 2 website.

But even then, that won’t guarantee that you get a code.

Thankfully, there is one other way that you can secure an Overwatch 2 Closed Beta code through Twitch Drops.

How to Secure an Overwatch 2 Closed Beta Invite via Twitch Drops

Players who have linked their Twitch and Battle.net accounts will be able to obtain an Overwatch 2 Closed beta invite through Twitch Drops on April 27 from 10 AM PT to 6 PM PT.

This means that players who don’t receive an invite email will still have the opportunity to grab a code for themselves without needing to wait for the next wave.

To do so, players will need to tune in to one of the streamers participating in the event and watch Overwatch 2 for a total of four hours.

But to be eligible, you will need to link your Twitch and Battle.net accounts.

Once your accounts are linked, you will need to:

  • Log in to your Battle.net account.
  • Click on the Overwatch icon on the top right of the launcher.
  • On the bottom left of the Overwatch page, you will see “Game Version.” Click on it, and you should see a drop-down menu.
  • Select Overwatch 2 Technical Beta and install it.
  • Press “Play” to start your Overwatch 2 journey.

It doesn’t have to be the same streamer either. Your watch time will still accrue no matter which streams you tuned into.

As long as you’re watching one of the listed streams below, you’ll be eligible.

In the past few days, we’ve been presented new glimpses at a few of the hero reworks that we will see in Overwatch 2.

And we’ve even been shown some gameplay from the alpha that content creators were given early. Despite all this, some players are still wary of how long it has been since Overwatch 2’s initial announcement.

It will be interesting to see how opinions change once more players get their hands on the beta.
