Bastion is one of the most annoying heroes in Overwatch

If you're having the time of your life playing as Bastion, or simply getting mowed down by Bastion as the majority of players I've met seem to be doing the past few days, you'll be glad to hear that the Overwatch Open Beta has been extended by one day.

This announcement comes from the most recent Blizzard post over at the Overwatch forums where the team has expressed their gratitude for the overwhelming amount of player feedback that has arrived over the past couple of days. Here's the full message:

"We hope everyone has been enjoying the Overwatch Open Beta. We certainly have! We've loved being able to play alongside you on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Over the last week, we've also had the opportunity to listen to your thoughts and opinions on the game; make improvements based on your reports in these very forums; and collect invaluable data just from you playing normally.

We couldn't be more grateful. So, as a small way of saying "thank you" to our community and the millions of players who've logged in so far, we will be extending the Open Beta by 1 day on all platforms. This means the beta will now conclude on May 10 at 10:00 a.m. PDT in all regions."

I'll post a more detailed analysis of Overwatch in a couple of days once I'm certain I'm no longer overly-emotional about Bastion being a gigantic piece of scrap-metal, but for now I would recommend you give Overwatch a try. It certainly doesn't live up to the titanic amounts of hype that surrounded it before the open beta, and it does have more than a few balance issues, but even with all of that considered its still an extremely polished, and quite fun team-based shooter.

The open beta will be ending on May 10 at 10:00am PDT for all regions and platforms, with the official release set for May 24 at $40/€40 price tag.
