Overwatch is currently noted by Blizzard to be their first-person shooter to look out for, given that it is, indeed their first of the kind. Since the game hasn't handed out a concrete date for the release, the beta of the title is one to look out for, and fans all over the globe can get already get their hands on it.

According to Kotaku, Blizzard's Overwatch has already been rumored to launch their beta for the title within the month of October, and as quick as the days may come, that day has finally come forth. Overwatch's beta date, which is officially set for October 27, 2015, is now upon the gamers. The journey to it, though, was not as smoothly acknowledgeable and accepted by the fans in the past.

It was noted by Lazy Gamer that Overwatch's beta was originally set to arrive only and only in the Americas on the said release date appointed to it. However, since Blizzard was able to accomplish the necessary results in their EU test much sooner than it was expected to be. The developers were able to catch up on the beta release and will include Europe to the list of countries to have the corresponding beta.

Sadly enough, these are only some of the territories as of the moment that will actually be able to experience the title and the rest of the world will have to stay a tad bit more patiently for their own share.

Delivered by Kit Guru, the beta testers for Overwatch will be segregated into two separate groups-one group will gain unlimited access to the title at all times, which will be comprised of numerous Twitch streamers together with YouTube personalities that will aid in amplifying the utter hype of the game. In oppose to it, the second group is bound to receive timely invites that will permit them to go about the beta a few days at a period. In general, all betas for Blizzard will receive invites in multiple occasions over a certain time.

For players that may not be able to get their hands on a beta soon enough, Blizzard encourages for just a little patience, perhaps a few months until the beta becomes official for the other territories. Overwatch still doesn't have a fixed release date, nor the confirmation that it will be a free-to-play game. Stay posted for more updates on Blizzard's first-person shooter title.
