Overwatch – Anniversary and Game of the Year Edition!

Overwatch is pretty much the go-to shooter nowadays, especially if you are not into gritty and bloodthirsty wars, but prefer a more family-friendly style of violence. Time flies, and it has been a year since Blizzard’s team shooter has overtaken PCs and consoles worldwide, and the time for celebration is now!

If you are hesitating about getting Overwatch (what!? You mad bro), there will also be a free-weekend session from May 26 to May 29, with all the progress being transferable to any full game purchase. There will also be a new seasonal event coming sometime this year, as Overwatch gets bigger, we can only hope for more awesome things to come!
