Blizzard has announced that Overwatch Crossplay Beta is coming. With the crossplay feature, console players can play with PC players and vice versa.
Overwatch Crossplay Beta is on the way
It’s been years since Overwatch came out. And since its launch, Console players could only play with other console players, PC players could only play with PC players. But from what it looks like, this is going to change soon. Because Blizzard recently announced that Overwatch Crossplay Beta is on the way. This will be accomplished with an update to Battle.net.
With a small update to Battle.net, players from different regions and platforms will be able to team up. Also, this new update will remove the region lock that’s been available for players in different regions. However, China still cannot play with other players in different countries. So you will be able to team up with your friend in the USA even if you live in the United Kingdom.
When cross-play is released, all players will need to make a Battle.net account and link their appropriate console accounts. In order to encourage players to do so, Blizzard is giving Golden Loot Box to players. Keep in mind that you have time until the end of this year. Cross progression will not be available in the first process of Overwatch Crossplay Beta.
There is no exact release date for the Overwatch Crossplay Beta as of now. However, it should be ready by the end of this year. As you may also know, Overwatch 2 is on the way and before its release, the developers are trying to give the best experience on Overwatch. It was already necessary since the launch of the game eventually. Players all around the world wanted to play with their friends on different platforms.
