Overwatch Gets Separate Currency For League Skins

Share

The Overwatch League kicks off on January 10, and 12 teams will be participating across the Atlantic and Pacific divisions. Nanzer said that the players that will log in globally for Overwatch League will have enough tokens to purchase their first Overwatch skin.

Blizzard released the announcement on Overwatch League team skins just before the eSports league's preseason, which is set to start on December 6. With the addition of unique team-colored ability particles, the Overwatch League team introduced similar home-and-away jerseys for each team.

The moment Blizzard announced team-specific Overwatch skins as part of its effort to make the game more watchable, it was pretty much inevitable that they'd become available to the game's skin-starved general populace as well.

The new currency called League Token will be introduced for players to purchase a team uniform skin of your favorite Overwatch League team. This includes twelve skins, branded differently for each franchise, for every single playable hero in the game.

The project will be produced by David Heyman, Tarantino and Shannon McIntosh, with Georgia Kacandes as executive producer. The two plan to convene a writers room to develop the film at Paramount, with Tarantino in the director's chair.

The catch, however, is that players will not be able to purchase the Overwatch League team skins the same way that they buy all other Overwatch skins.

Not anymore, OWL commissioner Nate Nanzer made an announcement for all Overwatch League fans on the site's official page as well as the social media pages.

Take note that the Overwatch League tokens will be only used to buy in-game content for the Overwatch League.

These tokens will enable the players to make the exact purchases that they want to make in the game. There is also the possibility that players will be able to convert credits into tokens.
