As with most Blizzard games, gamers have the choice of purchasing the “regular” game, or a deluxe version of the game that usually comes bundled with several in-game goodies. In the case of Overwatch, Blizzard has a “Game of the Year Edition” which is basically Overwatch plus a bunch of in-game items, as well as other in-game items for other Blizzard games.
However so far the copy of the game has been digital-only, but for those who might prefer collecting physical copies of the game, you’ll be pleased to learn that Blizzard has since confirmed that they will be selling a physical version of “Game of the Year Edition”. Essentially nothing has changed in terms of content, it’s just that it is now available in physical form which is what some gamers prefer.
For those who are unfamiliar with what the Game of the Year Edition contains apart from the main Overwatch game, it will come with a set of Mercy’s Wings that players can use in Diablo 3. It will also give World of Warcraft players a Baby Winston pet, and it will also unlock Tracer in Heroes of the Storm for free.
There will also be StarCraft 2 in-game portraits, and a special Hearthstone card back. There will also be 10 additional loot boxes bundled that will give players a chance to unlock new skins and other Overwatch in-game items. The retail version of Overwatch: Game of the Year Edition is expected to be released on the 28th of July.
