Cross-Play is Coming to Overwatch!
Cross-Play Beta is coming to Overwatch, allowing players to group up and play together regardless of their preferred platform. Additionally, a global Battle.net update merges friends lists from different territories into one, so players no longer need to switch regions in Battle.net just to play with buddies on the other side of the planet.*
For the release of cross-play, all players will need to do is make a Battle.net account and link their appropriate console accounts. Everyone who follows the steps below and logs in to Overwatch by 31 Dec., 2021 will receive a Golden Loot Box to celebrate the launch of Cross-Play Beta.
The Overwatch Cross-Play Beta officially launches soon on PC, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and Xbox.
