Overwatch is a highly acclaimed team-based multiplayer first-person shooter game from Blizzard. However, it's relatively high price has been a barrier preventing many from playing it. Basically one would have to wait for the game to come on sales before they can get it. That is no longer the case here, as gamers are now able to get Overwatch Standard Edition for just £16.99 (Rs 1580), which is only half the original price.

Standard Edition

As spotted by Trusted Reviews, £16.99 (Rs 1580) is now what it takes to get the base version of Overwatch on the Battle.net store. This is NOT a discount for a limited time period, the game will now stay at this price permanently. In fact, during Black Friday’s huge discount back in 2018, Overwatch was selling for just £12.99 (Rs 1200). This is easily the cheapest price ever available for the game, compared to the retail price that previously sold for £29.99 (Rs 2800).

Legendary Edition

Regarding the Legendary Edition, you can now get it at £34.99 (Rs 3260), instead of the traditional £49.99 (Rs 4650). This edition brings about extra skins and several other in-game stuff. Although it’s just a £15 price chop, it is still a bargain, a very generous reduction. Although in case you don’t know, the Legendary Edition can be picked up at an insane price of £16.99 during the holiday sale.

Available platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows

All of the above price cut and sale-off from Blizzard really encourages people to purchase the game, especially during Black Friday or any big sales throughout the year. It’s doubtless that you will eventually pick up Overwatch with a fairly lower price.

The multiplayer first-person shooter was released on May 24th, 2016.

Meanwhile, in the U.S, the cost to buy the Legendary version has gone down to $39.99 (Rs 2840). The base one is now selling at $19.99 (Rs 1420).

New Year event

Reinhardt Year Of The Pig

Aside from that, Overwatch has also recently kicked off its New Year celebration: 2019 - Year of the Pig, running until Feb 18th. This event is inspired by the Lunar New Year of Chinese culture, with references to important historical or cultural figures. The real star of any Overwatch event is the new cosmetic items, and this one is no different. It introduces countless new goodies, fresh skins, emotes, sprays, new maps alongside new patch notes and balance changes.
