Yesterday, Blizzard announced that Overwatch will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on May 24th, giving players an all new experience from the company known for creating amazing games.
While the game is only coming at the end of May, the start of May will see a final beta available for all players who pre-order the game and those who don't, but if you do order the game, you will get two days of access before it opens to the general public.
“Overwatch is a team shooter for everyone, with deep, cooperative gameplay, fast and fun competitive action, and a diverse range of larger-than-life heroes,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We think PC and console players everywhere will have a great time in the game, and we’re excited to give everyone a chance to try Overwatch out for themselves ahead of its May 24 launch.”
In order to ensure that players can choose the version of the game that is right for them, there are three versions of the game available, the standard game, the Origins Edition and the Collector's Edition.
The standard game is only available on PC and will get players the full experience, for those though that want a little more to their starting experience, the Origins Edition is for you. Alongside the full game, players will also get all of the following:
- Overwatch - Hero Skins
