#Overwatch” has become a staple shooter title in the video game industry. Since its release, it has acquired a huge following – and this number grows as each day passes by. It is arguably the most successful game in the scene right now.

According to Dot Esports, the Game of the Year edition of “Overwatch” is getting a physical copy [VIDEO] and it is slated to arrive in retail stores. It is worth noting that during the first-year anniversary of the title, #Blizzard released a digital copy of the edition. Here is everything about it in a nutshell.

It is a perfect release, as the new hero named Doomfist is coming just a day before. The base game, well, is exactly similar across all platforms, but as it is a special edition, Blizzard has some interesting goodies on it. Players who purchase it will acquire a total of 10 loot boxes and, more importantly, some Origins skins. The latter include, but are not limited to, Blackwatch Reyes, Overgrown Bastion, Strike-Commander Morrison, Slipstream Tracer and Security Chief Pharah.

Interestingly, the “Overwatch” Game of the Year edition also has some perks for other games [VIDEO] under Blizzard’s umbrella. For instance, “Diablo 3” fans will be getting Mercy’s wings. There is also a baby Winston pet, which is available to those who love “World of Warcraft.” As for the fans of “Starcraft 2,” they are entitled to some in-game portraits.

“Hearthstone” fans, on the other hand, are set to receive a card specifically themed by the developers.

What makes the game a massive success?

It holds true, though, that “Overwatch” has its own issues, which is completely understandable, as most titles experience such things. The difference is that Blizzard is always on the roll. They make sure that the game is well-balanced and that bugs or issues are fixed right away. The studio is also known for releasing interesting characters and ARGs (alternate game reality), all of which makes the entire experience fun for the players. Whether in-game or not, there is a satisfying feeling in being a fan of the game.

One of the best examples is the release of Doomfist in “Overwatch.” Before his arrival, Blizzard was passionate about releasing hint after hint [VIDEO], keeping the interest of the community engaged. As soon as he arrived (still in Public Test Realm, though), many fans had reason to celebrate. Not only is this character interesting in terms of gameplay and/or skills, but his role in the lore is also fascinating.
