Overwatch was released in 2016. Though the game aged quite well, it also needed a fresh start to make way for further developments.

The franchise will be getting that fresh start in the form of Overwatch 2, and the game’s slowly getting closer to its full release. Before it officially becomes available, however, the developers will be running a few beta tests to ensure everything’s up to scratch without any bugs.

If you’re looking to participate in the beta or pick up Overwatch 2 when it becomes available, you’ll need a capable gaming machine that is capable of smooth frame rates.
