Blizzard has officially launched its Overwatch cross-play beta for all platforms. It means Xbox heroes can now team up with players on Nintendo, PlayStation and PC platforms.

In order to do this, you'll need to create and link a free Battle.Net account. To celebrate this special occasion, all players will receive a Golden Loot Box.

There are, of course, some finer details. This update does not include cross-progression. This means no progress or collection content will carry over between sessions on different systems. Players can also choose to opt-in or out of cross-play.

Last, of all, there'll be two competitive matchmaking pools. PC and console players will not be mixed in the same pool for these matches.
