Overwatch PS4 PlayStation 4 Servers Online Live Switch On 1

Rather smartly, Blizzard is allowing you to get your hands on Overwatch ahead of its official 24th May launch so that you can get the game downloaded and installed ahead of time. You may be wondering, however, when the servers will go online. Fortunately, we have answers!

The official live time is the same globally: 00:00AM BST on 24th May. That means, depending on your time zone, you may actually be able to start playing the day before the official launch date. Let's run through the rollout across the world.
