I hate smurfs. They're the reason I can't get out of Plat
I have three options when I click on the link.

Do I need to buy the standard edition at the bottom or can I just buy the legendary one in the middle? Because if I have to buy both that's £36.99. I can buy the legendary edition from cdkeys for £30. It's for my son, and I'm not quite sure. If I'm being dense then please point it out.

It's confused me that the top one is legendary edition without the word upgrade in it for £50 and the middle one is marked down from £50 to £20. So in my mind they should be the same.

Any help appreciated as I'm confusing myself trying to explain what I mean
Only one version needed - standard. Legendary is the same game but gives you a few loot boxes / cosmetic items iirc.

By far the most fun I've ever had in any 'shooter' and obviously it's free to play this weekend so give it a go! It's got characters for everyone and lack of 'twitch' reflexes isn't much of an issue as the roster is diverse enough to cater for all gameplay styles.

Personally I don't even touch the competitive ranking side of things - quick play and Arcade suits me fine 90% of the time.

Just buy standard.
Thanks for the replies.

Yeah I will just buy the standard edition. By the look of it you need to buy the standard edition and then upgrade to legendary so it's not worth it. Bit naughty of them having the upgrade marked down from £50 when the stand alone legendary version is £50.
standard edition is enough.

rest is "extra exclusive skins" (which aren't that great, you'll get new ones during each new event) and extra/included loot boxes.

There is no expansion, no DLC, nothing extra included in the other editions.

All the content has been free until now. Regardless of the edition you choose, you'll play exactly the same maps, heroes and gamemodes as everyone else, in other words, you won't be excluded from anything "gamewise" by buying the cheaper version.

The only thing standard edition does not include is the "5 origin skins" (tracer, pharah, bastion, soldier, reaper).

Thanks for mentioning this, not played it since beta, I have wanted to play it again so the free weekend will help and to say it's on offer.
Thanks
The world could always use more heroes!

Superb game, especially on it's home of the PC. Amazing value. Blizzard have been continuously pumping great new content into the game, re-balancing it, and investing in it. All for free. £17 direct is brilliant value for money. Heat added.

I've always been a very positive player, but the new Endorsement system is great. It's helping incentivise positivity, and the community is already less toxic than a lot of others. (Especially on the PC.)

Fundamentally though, the game's just really good fun. You can take it seriously and focus on Competitive, or you can jump into Quick Play. Play with friends, or make some new ones.

Try the free weekend and fall in love.

Also the competitive Overwatch scene is awesome. We're at the Overwatch League Season final tonight and tomorrow (in the Barclays Area in New York), and London Spitfire (stage 1 champions) are facing off against the Philadelphia Fusion... I'll be driving to London for the watching party tomorrow in my Spitfire t-shirt. #AcesHigh

Overwatch League has been picked up by ESPN and Disney X D too, in addition to streaming live on Twitch and the dedicated Overwatch League app. It's the only esport that's ever hooked me, and I watch loads. If you're already a player, definitely worth trying too.
Nice find will give the free weekend a go, may be worth it's own post.
For any um, 'time limited' parents or workers out there then I'd highly recommend Overwatch as one of those games you can just dip in and out of for 15-30 minutes at a time. Since they introduced 'social' ranks (based on positive behaviour) it also seems that everyone is pretty nice to each other too...

Same here. The game is one of the best I've ever played - so much fun, the dynamics of a team mean every game is different - the choices you make differ each game too.

I *think* the Legendary Upgrade is for people who already have standard, so make sure you buy either Legendary or Standard if you don't already have the game (not the upgrade).

Worth noting the only thing you get with Legendary are skins (which most people don't use and which you can gain plenty of by playing), I'd not pay all that extra money unless there is a skin (check using Google) you REALLY want.

Yep, of course.

I don't understand how this game can be fun with a controller.

I started on PS4. I agree now though. It's so much faster on PC. The characters are so much more able to do spectacular things too.
What is your tag?
