Just a quick reminder to those who planned to pick up Overwatch at some point but haven’t yet: the Game of the Year edition is now available on the Blizzard, PlayStation and Xbox Stores.


Leaked earlier this month, before an official announcement was made alongside the Overwatch Anniversary event, which just so happened to go live today, the Game of the Year Edition is not only available but on sale.

Over on the PlayStation Store, it is 30% off, running you $41.99 instead of $59.99. If you are a PS Plus member, you can take an additional 5% off the sale price.

This edition is also 30% off through the Xbox Store and is also an additional 5% off for Xbox Live Gold Members.

So on both stores, if you hold a respective console membership, you’ll get 35% off and pay $38.99 or the regional equivalent.

PC players can pick up the game from the Blizzard Store for $39.99 instead of the regular price of $59.99

If you are on the fence still, the game will be free to download and play this weekend on all platforms, May 26-29.

Just make sure you have a Plus or Gold account or you won’t be able to play online. You can find out when the free play weekend goes live and when it ends in your region here.
