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

Overwatch League

You can also view results and league standing changes as they happen.

Skin tokens can be purchased through Blizzard.

"The Overwatch League is making a major impact on esports by reshaping the industry with city-based teams", said Twitch chief operating officer Kevin Lin said in a press release.

The news was revealed during the Overwatch League opening conference, however they've not revealed any specific time for when this new update will go live into the game. Bend time, defy physics and unleash a dizzying array of extraordinary powers and weapons in a rapid-fire team-based shooter.

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

Regardless of whether you agree with it or not, the skins do show support for the respective Overwatch teams and Blizzard is allowing you to show your allegiance by allowing you to select one skin by granting you tokens to purchase your first one in-game.

However, the money you pay won't be going to Blizzard, but instead will be used to fund the actual teams. 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.

Twitch will be the exclusive worldwide third-party provider for all the Overwatch League matches with streams in English, Korean, and French. Sources familiar with Blizzard's plans told ESPN the league has signed a deal with another Chinese broadcaster, but the partner was not specified and Activision Blizzard did not announce that on Tuesday.

"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".

The first season of the Overwatch League will run until June, with playoffs and finals scheduled for July. 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. San Francisco Shock will take on Los Angeles Valiant at 7pm ET on January 10, followed by Shanghai Dragons vs. Los Angeles Gladiators at 9pm ET and Dallas Fuel vs. Seoul Dynasty at 11pm ET.
