Blizzard Entertainment has announced today that Overwatch, the first-person, team-based shooter, is the company’s biggest open beta ever with over 9.7 million players from around the world. The open beta was made available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC and closed on May 10th.

The game features 21 different heroes to choose from, each with their own unique abilities and weapons. Players must team up with others to complete objectives on the battlefield.

“We’re thrilled that such an incredible number of players from around the globe got a chance to check out Overwatch during the Open Beta,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “Our mission was to make sure as many console and PC gamers as possible could experience the full game ahead of its launch—the response was overwhelming, and we hope that everyone had a blast.”

Overwatch will be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on May 24th. You can pre-order at www.playoverwatch.com/buy.
