All console players are required to create a Battle.Net account and then link their console account (PSN, Xbox, Nintendo) so they can access the feature. Players on PC need not do this step.

 

Steps to Create a Battle.Net Account:

  1. Go to Battle.net
  2. Create a free Battle.net account by clicking “My Account” at the upper-right corner of the screen, then selecting “Create a Free Account”
  3. Once you create your Battle.net account, go to your Account Settings
  4. Click on the “Connections” section under Account Settings and link your console

Here’s how you can link your Overwatch console game to your Battle.Net account once Cross-Play becomes available:

  1. Launch the game on your console
  2. Press the confirmation button to progress through the Overwatch welcome screen
  3. You will be presented with an alpha-numeric code and a QR code
    • The alpha-numeric code can be entered at blizzard.com/link
    • The QR code may be scanned with a mobile app to take you to the linking webpage, which will be pre-populated with the code provided in-game
  4. Log in with your Battle.net account credentials to finalize the connection between your console game and Battle.net accounts
  5. You will receive a message in-game that notifies that your account is now successfully connected
