Blizzard partnered up with Dark Horse to release an Overwatch art book. The book will come in two editions: Standard and Limited, and feature some never-before-seen art. An anthology collecting the first 12 of Overwatch comics will also be available in October.

Overwatch art book, which popped up on Amazon recently, will have a Standard and a Limited edition and we'll get to marvel at its glorious pages in October this year. Pre-orders are now open for both editions and they will set you back £38.7 and £77.4 respectively. 

The Art of Overwatch Limited Edition "comes packaged in a beautiful clamshell box with magnetic closure and includes an acetate slipcover featuring the game’s most popular hero, Tracer, as well as two portfolios containing a total of three prints chosen by the Overwatch team!"

Am I the only one who read this in a sensual and seductive inner voice?

Blizzard partnered up with Dark Horse Books to bring us the books filled with never-before-seen artwork, and take us behind the scenes to take a peek at our favourite heroes. 

"Dark Horse is proud to partner with Blizzard to give fans an action-packed art book full of never-before-seen art and commentary,". These books will include art that was not featured in the Collector's Edition of the game itself. 

Another Overwatch themed book set to release in October is the Overwatch Anthology: Volume 1, a hardcover anthology featuring all the first 12 issues of the comics. The anthology will include the origin stories of the Overwatch heroes as well as offer some new details about their past.
