Back in May, Blizzard celebrated Overwatch's first anniversary with a new seasonal event, a free weekend and a digital GotY edition. Now, a physical Overwatch: Game of the Year Edition will hit the shelves on 28 July.
Overwatch now has north of 30 million players. Starting next week, new players can join the fight with an enhanced boxed version of the team-based shooter that’s now won over more than 100 game of the year awards.
The digital version of Overwatch Game of the Year edition was available on 23 May. When it came out, the GotY edition replaced the Origins Edition.
Overwatch: Game of the Year Edition will be available in retail stores starting 28 July. In addition to the full roster of heroes, maps, and features, the GotY edition includes a host of digital goodies and extras for other Blizzard games:
- 10 Bonus Overwatch Loot Boxes - Enjoy 10 bonus Loot Boxes, each containing random items that can be used to customize and personalize the appearance of your heroes.
