Overwatch will go on sale at almost every store for the Black Friday event. However, the fans no longer need to wait until next week to pick it up.
Based on reports, Best Buy and Amazon currently have Overwatch on sale for $35, which is the same cost offered at several stores on Black Friday, with a $1 discount compared to the current offer by Xbox Live. The offer is available for PS4, Xbox One and the PC versions. Reports also indicate that Amazon is offering the digital PC game for $35 as well. For the Gamers Club Unlocked members, the current offer means a price cut of $28 at Best Buy. While there are no details until when this offer will be available on Amazon, Best Buy's deal is reported to last until Nov. 18.
Meantime, a free-play weekend event for Overwatch is currently being offered by Blizzard to allow the players on all three platforms to enjoy the full game experience free for a limited time. With that, the players will be able to check out Sombra, including all the other new content that have been added in the recent major update earlier this week. For now, Black Friday deals can also be checked out next week on other stores like Dell, GameStop, Sam's Club, Kohl's, Target, Toys R Us and Walmart.
