Blizzard and Twitch announce Overwatch League media partnership

Overwatch League Season One – What You Need to Know

If you're excited about the start of the inaugural season of the Overwatch League on January 10th, we have even more great news.

With Overwatch League set to begin in earnest this week, Blizzard want to make sure you don't miss a second of the action. You can also watch previous matches through video-on-demand (including the preseason that's already up) on the official website.

The skins aren't dazzling or anything, they're the equivalent of wearing a team jersey to a local game.

Like all the other Overwatch events we've seen over the years, the Overwatch League will have skins, allowing spectators to distinguish between one team from another.

It would cost $100 to unlock every skin for a particular team, as there are 26 characters and it's $100 for 2,600 tokens-though that leaves you with some extra, due to the free 100.

Overwatch is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. What's cool is that Blizzard is letting players of the game purchase skins for their favorite teams, so they can represent them online.

However, the money you pay won't be going to Blizzard, but instead will be used to fund the actual teams. This in-game currency can only be used for Overwatch League skins. Many of these are centered around fixing Doomfist, a character who has been recently plagued with a number of erratic gameplay bugs that made it hard to achieve consistent results.
