Overwatch gets free weekend event as GOTY and standard editions go on sale

0

Anniversary bash

If you didn't hear the news, Overwatch turned one this week, and with that, a barrage of promotions are accompanying its various new skins and maps.

Starting on Friday, May 26 at 11am Pacific and running through Monday, May 29 until just before midnight, you'll be able to try Overwatch for free on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Blizzard has also introduced Overwatch: Game of the Year Edition -- in essence replacing its Origins Edition -- and brought discounts.

Unsurprisingly, Overwatch: GOTY Edition is priced at $60 and gets a big cut down to $39.99 (33% off), while the standard edition gets a smaller price cut from $40 to $30 (25% off). Interestingly enough, the discount on GOTY for PS4 and Xbox One will require Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus to get the maximum price cut, whereas PC pals can just pick up the game at its lowered price on Battle.net or at GameStop (same Battle.net key).

Overwatch Anniversary Deals

Sales listed above last through June 5, so you'll have plenty of time to mull on picking up a copy if you enjoy your time with the game during the free weekend.

Disclosure-bot: Just in case the editor neglected to mention it, we have zero control when deals start and end. Deals can sometimes be gone within minutes (please don't shoot the messenger). Trying deal links even hours after this article's time stamp may lead to self-punching, so maybe bookmark our video game deals if you're on the hunt. Also, it goes without saying, but some shopping links do directly support the author. If you've spotted any inaccuracy please let us know asap.
