The Overwatch League in-game menu isn't just for staring at the shiny new skins - players can watch the games via this menu when they're live. Team-branded skins were announced past year on December 4.

To celebrate the launch of the league, each player who logs into Overwatch on PC, PlayStation, or Xbox One between now and February 13 will receive 100 free League Tokens-enough to get one Overwatch League team skin of your choice free.

Fifty percent of revenue from the Overwatch League skins will go to a shared pot for the teams. Only the Home skins are available for the teams, making for a grand total of 312 new skins added to the game.

However, the money you pay won't be going to Blizzard, but instead will be used to fund the actual teams. The first season gets underway tomorrow.

The deal will also feature a number of in-game item exclusives and rewards for fans using the Twitch platform. Details on these in-game rewards or how to claim them are still being worked on, but Blizzard will announce more when they're ready.
