Blizzard permanently slashes $20 off the price of Overwatch on PC


Knocking down prices like a Wrecking Ball

Overwatch on PC just got a little more affordable for anyone who wants to become a late adopter of Blizzard's hero shooter (or for anyone who just wants an alt account).

Blizzard has cut the price of Overwatch on PC by $20 for both editions. The standard edition -- all the heroes but without all the bells and whistles -- has been reduced to $20, down from $40. The legendary edition, which really just has a handful more character skins, is now $40 instead of $60. For what it's worth, the legendary edition also has crossover content for World of Warcraft, Diablo III, Heroes of the Storm, StarCraft II, and Heartstone.

This seemingly won't affect the price of the console versions, at least not yet. The PS4 version is still listed at $60. However, the PC market is increasingly making these type of live service games free-to-play. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is one of the most recent examples. Slashing $20 off the price tag doesn't make it free, but it makes Overwatch a bit more enticing to the holdouts.
