Overwatch League Skins Are Now Available for Purchase in the New Tab
You can finally start purchasing the much-awaited Overwatch League skins through a new tab that was introduced earlier today in the game.
There are twelve participating teams and there is an exclusive “uniform skin” for each of them for every hero on the roster. This adds up to 312 different skins in total for the Overwatch League.
Take note that they can only be purchased through tokens, a new form of currency that is only applicable to the Overwatch League. They cannot be used to purchase anything else from the in-game store.
The Overwatch League skins will cost 100 tokens each, meaning that it will take more than 30,000 tokens to purchase every single one of them. Blizzard has granted all players 100 tokens to purchase the first skin for free. Those interested in more can purchase 100 tokens for $5. There are discounted bundles available in the case that you want to purchase more tokens at a reduced cost.
Half of the revenue from the sale of Overwatch League skins will contribute to a shared pot for the teams. The same percentage of revenue from other merchandise will be added to the same pool as well.
The first stage of matches for the inaugural season of the Overwatch League officially start on January 10 at the Blizzard Arena in Los Angeles. Tickets for the opening day have already sold out, but the rest of the weeks are still available.
