If you haven’t already jumped into Overwatch, you can purchase the Game of the Year Edition which includes the complete roster of Overwatch heroes, maps, and game modes, as well as an arsenal of bonus content and Overwatch-themed goodies for several Blizzard Entertainment games:

  • [Diablo III] Mercy’s Wings: Slay demonic forces throughout the High Heavens and Burning Hells while donning Mercy’s wings, and all of Sanctuary will know of your allegiance to Overwatch!
  • [StarCraft II] Player Portraits: These picture-perfect portraits of Tracer, Reaper, Pharah, Winston, Bastion, and Soldier: 76 give new meaning to the phrase “Hero of the Koprulu Sector.”
  • [Hearthstone] Overwatch Card Back: If you happen to find yourself in a Tavern Brawl, show your opponent you’ve got backup with an Overwatch-themed card back.
  • [World of Warcraft] Baby Winston Pet: Adorably cuddly and highly intellectual, the Baby Winston pet will be at your side as you fight to extinguish the Burning Legion.
