Which for all of us down under is 9:00 a.m. AEST on Tuesday May 24. So if you had plans to fire it up at midnight on Monday, its time to think about something else to do during at that time. Like making sure the game is installed correctly, re-watch the Overwatch animated shorts, scour the internet for Overwatch "fan art", or explore the legalities of changing your name to Pharah. Or simply, get in a good nights rest before a long day of epic and intense hero battles.
Speaking of installing the game correctly, Blizzard's launch post
which highlights the international times that the servers go live also include instructions on how to do just that. Like these for the PS4 retail version.
FOR PLAYSTATION 4 (PHYSICAL):
- Step 1: Turn on your PlayStation 4 and log in to your preferred local user.
- Step 2: Remove the Overwatch disc from its packaging and insert it into the console.
- Step 3: Follow the on-screen instructions to begin the installation process.
- Step 4: Once installed, select the Overwatch icon and press "X" to begin!
Unnecessary sure, but deep down we all want to be matched up against the person who needs that bit of info to get the game running.
