This Beta is presently available for PC only

The Overwatch Competitive Play Beta for PC is now in progress. You will get the Beta in the latest patch for Overwatch. Not only will you have the Beta, the patch also includes the gamepad controls update, bug fixes that are available for maps, heroes as well as general ones. Everything is now available to be tested on the Public Test Region.

Competitive Play Beta can be accessed by the players who have reached level 25. Accessing the competitive play will allow you to have a “more serious experience”. It will give you the chance to perfect your game strategies and sharpen your skills.

How to join the Overwatch Competitive Play Beta

To be able to access the beta, you must finish 10 placement matches. Competitive play beta requires this so that the matchmaking system can gather information on what you are capable of and give you a skill rating. The skill rating assigned to you will be the basis for the system to be able to match you with other players with similar skill level.

You will also need to have an Overwatch copy for PC which is licensed, and it also should be connected to your account.
(Note: Your account must be in very good standing; your account must not have been banned or suspended previously.)
Follow this 5 steps to participate:

Step 1: Restart Desktop App. Step 2: Navigate to the Overwatch tab on the left-hand menu. Step 3: Select “PTR: Overwatch” from the region/account drop down menu. Step 4: Click “Install” for the installation process to start. Step 5: Click “Play” once the PTR client has been installed and updated.

        Note: For you to access the Public Test Program (PTR), you should have installed Overwatch and was able to log-in at least once. It may be possible that the PTR will not be available after following the steps given, try logging in then out of the Overwatch game client then try accessing the PTR once again.
Same with the Beta Tests, no progress will be carried over to the live version of the game.
