Overwatch | 15 minutes

For more on the Overwatch League and plenty more guides on the game, be sure to search for Twinfinite. Aside from China, the deal secures exclusive streaming rights for Twitch, and the deal will last for both the 2018 and 2019 Overwatch League seasons. You can also view what their weapon looks like in the various team colors by selecting the icon right below the hero.

To actually purchase an Overwatch League skin just select on the team of your choice to bring up the character roster. You'll find the skins by clicking on each of the 12 Overwatch League team names-one for each of Overwatch's 26 heroes, which adds up to 312 different skins.

Blizzard revealed that skins will also be available to purchase in bundles, however, they've not shared anymore information on what they will cost for the time being. All players have received 100 free Overwatch League tokens, which are the game's new currency system specifically for the new skins.

What Overwatch League team will you be rooting for in the upcoming season?

Talking about the deal, Twitch COO Kevin Lin said: "The Overwatch League is making a major impact on esports by reshaping the industry with city-based teams". Unlike the other skins in the game, players can only obtain League Tokens by directly purchasing them from the Blizzard store.

"Our fans love to engage with content on Twitch, and we wanted to drive significant viewership of the Overwatch League in its inaugural season and beyond", said Armin Zerza, chief operating officer of Blizzard Entertainment, in a statement.

The Overwatch League is set to launch on Wednesday, Jan. 10 at the Blizzard Arena in Burbank, Calif. "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 league will run from January to June with playoffs and finals slated for July. The venue was custom-renovated for Blizzard Entertainment esports events and is housing all matches while local franchises get their own venues prepped for eSports.
