Overwatch League Skins To Be Obtainable by Watching Overwatch League On Twitch

Published

on

Twitch, which owns the broadcast rights to Overwatch League, is partnering with Blizzard to introduce a new way to obtain Overwatch skins.

Viewers who watch the Overwatch League broadcasts on Twitch streams will be able to earn Overwatch Tokens, a new type of currency introduced along with the new skins. The skins will cost 100 Overwatch Tokens, with the smallest bundle costing $5 if you would rather purchase them outright, and viewers will receive one Overwatch Token for each “live map finish” you view.

This new currency introduces a free bonus for those who are streaming the league games and adds an incentive to lure in new viewers.

While it’s a small reward for watching some of the best gaming teams in the league, if you watch the end of the final match during a live broadcast, you will be automatically entered in the running to win 100 Tokens. Twitch says that a “percentage” of viewers will randomly win this prize.

Token rewards will only be available to PC, PS4, and Xbox One players in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Argentina, Chile, Denmark, France, Germany, New Zealand, Norway, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and Taiwan and gamers must connect their Battle.net account with Twitch, MLG.com and OverwatchLeague.com.

Twitch has also announced Overwatch League Cheering, which allows viewers to spend Bits purchased with real-world money to support teams and players.

Stage 2 of the Overwatch League kicked off on Wednesday, February 21st.
