Overwatch League UPDATE Team Skins Tokens,going LIVE on PS4 Xbox and PC

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.

These home team skins - which are the more colourful ones - will be available for purchase ahead of the Overwatch League. If for some reason you felt inclined to buy every single one of these new skins, it would cost you just shy of $1,200.

Quickly check the standings or catch the latest stories and videos from the Overwatch League, including interviews, team profiles, breaking news, and in-game analysis. However, there are 12 teams participating in the Overwatch League, meaning that there are a grand total of 312 skins. This in-game currency can only be used for Overwatch League skins. Purchasing League Tokens supports the teams in a revenue split with Blizzard, although the details of exactly how the money is split have not been publicly revealed.

According to Blizzard's announcement, Twitch is set to broadcast each and every Overwatch League match live over the course of the league's first two seasons in English, French, and Korean, with this two-year deal for exclusive broadcast rights including playoffs and championship matches. 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.
