Blizzard's Overwatch is a full-price game, not free-to-play

And yes, the console version is confirmed.

Blizzard's team-based shooter Overwatch is not free-to-play, as many had expected, but a full price game. It's out spring 2016.

On PC the standard version of Overwatch costs 30. Overwatch: Origins Edition (PC, PS4 and Xbox One) costs 45 on PC and 49.99 on console. There's a 99.99 Collector's Edition, too.

Blizzard said all versions of the game come with 21 heroes. The final three of that lineup are Genji, D.Va and Mei. Here's the official blurb:

  • Genji, a cybernetic ninja, is an expert assassin capable of extraordinary feats of agility, including reflecting enemy attacks with his blade.
  • D.Va is a former pro-gaming superstar who pilots an experimental military mech in defense of her home country.
  • Mei travels the globe applying her scientific expertise to protect the natural world; in battle, her arsenal of climate-manipulating technology has the power to put the opposition on ice.

The Origins Edition comes with a raft of digital extras. This comes with hero skins for five characters as well as extras for other Blizzard games, including a Baby Winston pet for World of Warcraft and Tracer hero for Heroes of the Storm.
