I can't understand how to pre-load this damn thing. I got the battle.net program open and there's no option. I haven't pre-ordered and it's for the PC. This is insane.

You need to have a code that you enter into the battlenet site, and then you'll be able to install the game through the Battlenet launcher you have pictured.

I preordered it, so I received the code in a Blizzard email. I'm not sure how you get a code if you did not preorder, though.

Edit: The Beta started yesterday (in NA), and my son had a blast.

No one cares that you saved an extra nickel on this same deal back in 2007. If it doesn't apply to the current deal, please keep it to yourself. Tumbleweed

So I'm to assume there's no pre-load option if you didn't pre-order? That's nutz, how big is the download?

I'm in the US and the open beta is available for download. Just go to the same page you are on, and there should be a link at the bottom which says Install. The download for me is 6.5gb

An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

The Blizzard blog has details about playing the beta for free through May 9th: https://playoverwatch.com/en-gb/blog/20100169/.

Fun game..I like it better than Battleborn by miles.

Though just like MOBAs...a good counter-pick against your character and no amount of skill is going to help you.

Kind of wished they equipped everyone with some sort of standardized weaponry and movement system along with whatever specialized abilities and weaponry.
