Despite rumors of Blizzard’s debut FPS being free-to-play, Overwatch has been priced and is now available to pre-order not just for PC, but for the PS4 and Xbox One.
An accidental early listing on GameStop showed Blizzard’s Overwatch releasing not just for PC, but on consoles as well. Confirmed moments ago during BlizzCon 2015, Overwatch is in fact coming to the next-gen systems with two versions available for pre-order.
Overwatch: Origins Edition will include five additional skins for Bastion, Pharah, Morrison/Soldier: 76, Reyes/Reaper and Tracer, along with digital content for the Blizzard library; a “Baby Winston” pet for World of Warcraft, Overwatch card backing in Hearthstone, and the “Mercy’s Wings” item in Diablo III. A multitude of portraits are included for StarCraft II, featuring Tracer, Reaper, Pharah, Winston, Bastion and Soldier: 76.
For the dedicated fans, Overwatch Collector’s Edition (pictured above) is also available for pre-order. For $129.99, buyers will receive the base game, everything included in Origins Edition, a “visual sourcebook”, game soundtrack and a statue of Soldier: 76.
Overwatch was previously rumored to be free-to-play, however all three versions have been priced accordingly: the PC-only standard version of Overwatch is priced at $39.99, with Origins Edition listed at $59.99, and the Collector’s Edition finally coming in at $129.99.
Overwatch will release for PC, Xbox One and PS4 in Spring 2016.
