  • Overwatch League Tokens

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.

"Our fans love to engage with content on Twitch, and we wanted to drive significant viewership of the Overwatch League in its inaugural season and beyond", said Armin Zerza, COO of Blizzard Entertainment.

The final bit of news came this morning, where after much speculation and confusion, Blizzard announced a two-year partnership with Twitch.

As one of the most recognized personalities within the esports scene, Chris Puckett has solidified himself as a major talent within the industry since his inception to the community in the early 2000's.

Not taking the field, court or ice, the Houston Outlaws of the Overwatch League will hit the screen as one of the 12 teams to compete in the opening season of the eSports league.

For the inaugural season, all games will take place at Blizzard Arena Los Angeles, a state-of-the-art live-event venue in Burbank, California, custom-renovated for Blizzard Entertainment esports events.
