Moments ago at BlizzCon 2015, Blizzard officially announced that their team based shooter, Overwatch, will start at $40 (USD) for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. On top of this, there will be a special $60 "Origins Edition" of the game that includes some additional skins.

The pre-order page for Overwatch details what all you will get for your $40 in cash money. You get the game and all currently announced characters and maps. Now, if you bump it up to the $60 Origins Edition you then get the following.

Yep, $20 more and most of it goes towards cosmetics for games that aren't Overwatch. Oh, and it seems as though pre-ordering does not even guarantee you a spot in the ongoing beta. Of course, charging $40 at a minimum for a game that has very similar free-to-play competition on top of including microtransactions seems like a super terrible idea.

There's also a $130 Collector's Edition. This comes with a soundtrack, a "visual sourcebook," and a Soldier: 76 statue. This is on top of the content in the Overwatch: Origins Edition.
