Blizzard launching Overwatch League tokens for skins

Blizzard launching Overwatch League tokens for skins

Each purchase goes to the team in question.

In the announcement, Nanzer noted that Overwatch has already announced the concept at Blizzcon and it will be effective early next year for all the team players in Overwatch League.

Usually with Overwatch, the festive limited-time only skins can be unlocked through gameplay and found in random loot boxes.

We wondered back in October if the advent of the Overwatch League meant that players would be given the opportunity dress up their Overwatch avatars in OWL-themed skins. With the addition of unique team-colored ability particles, the Overwatch League team introduced similar home-and-away jerseys for each team.

The new currency called League Token will be introduced for players to purchase a team uniform skin of your favorite Overwatch League team.




"We want to make sure that players can directly support their favorite Overwatch League teams, which is exactly what our league token system allows us to do", Blizzard said. The uniforms will be available for all 26 heroes in the game. The tokens can only be used to purchase the Overwatch League-related content in the game.

It remains unclear, however, how players will be able to acquire more Overwatch League tokens, such as whether they can be earned while playing matches.

The Overwatch League preseason will start on December 6, in preparation for the highly anticipated launch on January 10, 2018.

Of course, one of the major features in the Overwatch League is the teamplay. New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft co-owns the Boston Uprising, and Los Angeles Rams owner Stan Kroenke co-owns the Los Angeles Gladiators.
