After the announcement of Blizzard on Twitter, the Overwatch cross-play beta is now live for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
The cross-play beta is available, thanks to the global Battle.net update. It also merges friends list from various territories. It means that from now on, you won’t have to switch regions to play with friends.
If you want to turn on cross-play for Overwatch, you can log in to the Battle.net account. Afterward, you have to connect your preferable platform, namely the PSN, Xbox Live, or Nintendo Switch Online.
After logging in, players will receive a bonus in the form of a free Golden Loot Box.
Cross-play has become an increasingly popular feature for many iconic games in the last few years. It’s because not all the players have the latest gen consoles. Thus, they can try out any new release without any issue with their data with the help of cross-play.
While the Overwatch cross-play is here, it will keep the fans hooked until the sequel arrives eventually.
It will have specific new changes in the original gameplay when it comes to the next big entry. A release date is yet to be revealed from the developers.
