Overwatch is one of the best multiplayer shooters around. If you’ve been itching to pick the game up on console, the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the Legendary Edition, which gives you extra skins for your heroes, is available for $30 through Amazon Prime Day. That’s a 50% discount. You’ll have to act fast though, as the deal ends Monday 9:20 PM PT / Tuesday 12:20 AM ET.
Overwatch takes after titles like Team Fortress 2, pitting teams of players against one another in objective based multiplayer matches. Blizzard’s shooter features a diverse range of fighters, from the angelic Mercy who soars above the battlefield and heals teammates, to the stoic Hanzo who hunts down enemies with his bow, an assortment of trick arrows, and mystical Japanese techniques. The game earned a cult-like following before it even released, and continues to reward its player base with regular gameplay updates, patches, and new maps and characters.
In our Overwatch review, Mike Mahardy gave the game a 9/10, writing, “Overwatch is an intelligent cascade of disparate ideas, supporting one another, pouring into one another, and coiling around themselves as they flow into the brilliant shooter underneath.” We later gave Overwatch our Game of the Year award for 2016.
The Legendary Edition of Overwatch includes the base game and adds five Epic, five Legendary, and five Origin skins for the assortment of heroes you can play as. The Origin skins add Overwatch content to other Blizzard games, like World of Warcraft and Diablo III. It’s not an ideal purchase for someone who’s already been playing Overwatch, but it’s a great starter kit for any players looking to jump into the game.
