If you haven't gotten into the Overwatch beta yet, you may want to check your account on Friday to see if has been one f the lucky ones to make it into this weekends beta test. The closed beta will be opening it's doors to a much larger group of testers temporarily from November 20th at 9:00am PST to the 23rd. After the weekend beta has ended you will be locked out again like the rest of us.

Throughout the weekend players will be able to take up arms as any of the 21 heroes currently available, but only three of the available maps which are: Hanamura, King’s Row, and Watchpoint: Gibraltar.

Blizzard is labeling this weekends events as a stress test, so there's likely to be a lot of people getting in. But remember, there are no invites being sent out. If you're selected for beta duty your account will be flagged for access. You can check if you've made it in or not by launching the Blizzard launcher and seeing if there is an option to install Overwatch. If there isn't you're out of luck.
