The Replay feature can be tried out on Overwatch’s PTR server, where you can put it to it test in your own games. It is possible for you to watch the last 10 games in the replay. By the way we should tell you that the training and the tutorial games cannot be accessed at the moment. Yet, you can easily watch replays of the professional eSports games. You can pause, slow down or speed up the game at any time. The change of perspective can be easily done as in the live broadcasts of the official Overwatch League. Lastly, you should know that the replays will only be available until a new patch is released. Blizzard Entertainment has not revealed that for how long will it be on the PTR and when will it be the released on the Overwatch live servers.
