  • Overwatch League Uniform Skins Will Be Available for In-Game Purchase

Blizzard released the announcement on Overwatch League team skins just before the eSports league's preseason, which is set to start on December 6.

Teams will have access to color themed skins in the gameplay which will make it easier to identify team members and be visually uniform as well.

Overwatch League tokens are a new form of in-game currency that will be introduced early next year for a very exclusive and special goal.

Of course, one of the major features in the Overwatch League is the teamplay. Earlier this year, Pokemon Go capped off the initial addition of Legendary Pokemon to the game with a two week long event in which all the Legendary Birds were available to fight. Players are only able to buy league tokens with real money, as the 50 percent of the revenue from the purchase will go into a "net shared revenue pool" for all 12 Overwatch League teams, Blizzard confirmed to Dot Esports. These skins will be available to buy through a new currency called "League Tokens", rather then trying to get them in the loot boxes you can buy in-game. It is said that the tokens will become an indicator of each team's popularity and players' taste in the skin. The tokens can only be used to purchase the Overwatch League-related content in the game. He did not say, however, whether players will be able to unlock more tokens through MLG-calibre plays of their own, or if they will only be able to buy them.

The Overwatch League kicks off on January 10, and 12 teams will be participating across the Atlantic and Pacific divisions.
