Overwatch League-Themed Skins Are Now Available in Overwatch for Every Hero

League Skins are purchased with League Tokens, a new currency created especially for the League. 100 League tokens buys you a skin.

To celebrate the momentous occasion, Blizzard has put team skins for each of the Pacific or Atlantic aligned teams for characters into Overwatch. And they'll cost you. While the stream will be available on Twitch, it's important to note that fans will also be able to check out the matches on MLG.com and the MLG app for iOS and Android, Blizzard's own website for the game's eSports league, and on Blizzard's smartphone app as well.

Speaking in a press release, Blizzard COO Armin Zera said that the new partnership is a way for fans to stay connected with the Overwatch League brand over the coming years.

It's no secret that Twitch is the premium place to watch video games live on the internet.

Overwatch League-Themed Skins Are Now Available in Overwatch for Every Hero

According to Blizzard's announcement, Twitch is set to broadcast each and every Overwatch League match live over the course of the league's first two seasons in English, French, and Korean, with this two-year deal for exclusive broadcast rights including playoffs and championship matches.

"That's why this historic and ground-breaking partnership is perfectly suited for Activision Blizzard, for Twitch, and-most importantly-for our growing global fanbase". Twitch will show every regular-season and postseason contest for OWL, which starts play tomorrow night, and develop reward programs and new virtual merchandise for viewers.

What Overwatch League team will you be rooting for in the upcoming season? Considering that skins are a big deal to many fans of the FPS, this news will be disappointing to those who were looking forward to adding to their collection. Honours that comes with a whole lot of green to the tune of $125 000 for the winners of each of the season's four five-week long stages, with a final overall Overwatch League Champion prize of a cool $1 million.

The Overwatch League's first season is broken up into four stages, with the first one beginning on January 10, and going on till February 10. If you're lucky enough to be in the Los Angeles area, you can actually get tickets to see the matches go down in person at the Blizzard Arena.
