Overwatch League Partners With Twitch In Two-Year Broadcast Deal

Overwatch Update Adds 312 League Skins

For players who log on before February 13, they'll be awarded with enough "league tokens" to get one skin for a character for free.

Which is why today's announcement that the next two years of the Overwatch League (Seasons 1 and 2) will be exclusively broadcasted on Twitch is such a comfort to fans.

The Overwatch League is kicking off this week and the first matches slated for Wednesday January 9th will start the competitive event off right!

Overwatch League skins & sprays are now available in the game according to patch notes posted on the game's official forums. You can also view what their weapon looks like in the various team colors by selecting the icon right below the hero.

The Overwatch League is a big bet for Blizzard/Activision, which has gone all-in to promote and support the league for its newest and fastest growing title (that fastest growing medal may be a function of the game's novelty, or a function of the incredible spread of gaming since the launch of Overwatch in 2014 and the company's last completely new game launch ... in the 1990s).

Skin tokens can be purchased through Blizzard. These also feature the various logos for the different Overwatch League teams, so think of them as jerseys for your favorite heroes. League Tokens are a new form of in-game currency in Overwatch that players can buy in bundles.

"The Overwatch League is making a major impact on esports by reshaping the industry with city-based teams", said Kevin Lin, COO of Twitch. 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.

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.
