Overwatch League-Twitch Deal Worth At Least $90M

Overwatch League-Twitch Deal Worth At Least $90M

You can get these Overwatch League tokens simply by following the same steps as you would were you to purchase the skins themselves.

Twitch and Overwatch League officials declined comment. In total that's a whopping 312 skins to start the season.

Just in time for the commencement of the Overwatch League, Blizzard and Twitch have partnered up to bring every match to the popular streaming service. The plan behind the new currency is to essentially perform an extra stream of income for the competitors - no details have been given regarding the currency but we know that Blizzard will be taking a portion.

The Overwatch League is scheduled to begin on January 10. It would cost $99.99 to buy all of the skins for a single team. Users can not get these skins or the in-game currency via loot boxes, seasonal events, or by spending their gold coins. Every "jersey" will cost you 100 League Tokens regardless of which team or character you pick.




The Overwatch League is set to launch on Wednesday, Jan. 10 at the Blizzard Arena in Burbank, Calif.

Aside from China, the new agreement provides exclusive worldwide coverage of all of the first two seasons of Overwatch League.

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.

The deal will also feature a number of in-game item exclusives and rewards for fans using the Twitch platform. Twelve teams, comprising of professional Overwatch players from all across the world, will compete for the first Overwatch League championship title, where finals will be held in July 2018. "Given Overwatch's consistent reign as a top viewed game by our community, we look forward to offering their pioneering style of league play to a large and passionate fanbase that will be able to bond over not only their favorite plays, but hometown pride". 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.
