Overwatch 2 beta will add more maps, heroes and other features

Blizzard has published a blog about the first week of public beta testing of Overwatch 2 PvP modes.
The main idea is that more content will become available in multiplayer, which players will be able to try out before the release.Key points from the blog:In the \"beta\" PvP will appear more heroes, maps and features.
When exactly, Blizzard does not specify.
Judging by the fact that the developers call the current test \"the first technical beta test\", PvP additions may be introduced not in this \"beta\", but in any of the following.Until the end of this \"beta\" will be open matchmaking without restrictions on the roles - it helps reduce waiting time.In this \"beta\" will not enter a competitive mode.
Firstly, the developers do not want to fragment a limited audience for a large number of queues in matchmaking.
Secondly, some significant changes are planned for the competitive mode - they are not yet ready for a public launch.For support heroes are preparing new and redesigned abilities.
They have a chance to appear in the current \"beta\", but are likely to be delayed until the next test.
Blizzard is also creating new support heroes, which will be introduced sometime later.Overwatch 2 is introducing a new table with stats in the match.
According to Blizzard, the old system, with medals and the state \"On Strike,\" was causing players to misinterpret their team's overall performance.
Now you can see the number of kills, assists, deaths, damage, and cures for all players in the match.
Separately, Blizzard mentions features that aren't ready or aren't finished in the current beta: menu screens, player profiles, different time of day on the classic maps, a gold weapons system, and headshot indicators in the kill ribbon.
That is, says Blizzard, now players see the unpolished version of Overwatch 2 - the release, it will look prettier and richer in content.It is expected that the current phase of the beta test will last until May 17, but the date can still change.
When the full version of Overwatch 2 will be released is still unknown.
