Blizzard and Twitch announce Overwatch League media partnership

Blizzard and Twitch announce Overwatch League media partnership

To celebrate the launch of the league, each player who logs into Overwatch on PC, PlayStation, or Xbox One between now and February 13 will receive 100 free League Tokens-enough to get one Overwatch League team skin of your choice free. In total that's a whopping 312 skins to start the season. To get the skins costs tokens, which are $5 for 100 tokens.

See the team skins for all 12 city-based franchises. Days before the league's first-ever match on January 10th, the publisher announced it's formed a partnership with Twitch, which will broadcast every match of the first two seasons.

With the inaugural season for the Overwatch League beginning tomorrow, fans of Blizzard's team-based shooter looking to tune in might be wondering exactly where they can go to watch the action unfold.

The release teases Overwatch League "Cheermotes" as well as additional rewards for the "biggest fans" and unique Overwatch League in-game items for the league's most "steadfast viewers".

With the exception of China, Twitch will be the exclusive worldwide third-party provider for Overwatch League regular-season, playoffs, and championship matches, with streams in English, Korean, and French. "That's why this historic and ground-breaking partnership is perfectly suited for Activision Blizzard, for Twitch, and-most importantly-for our growing global fanbase".

As one of the most recognized personalities within the esports scene, Chris Puckett has solidified himself as a major talent within the industry since his inception to the community in the early 2000's. Among those, the Los Angeles Valiant announced on Tuesday that it will compete at the Microsoft Theater in LA Live starting in Season 3, which is owned by one of its investor groups, Anschutz Entertainment Group. If you want to watch the matches in person, that's a different story: Every game during the first season will be played at the new Blizzard Arena Los Angeles, which charges admission.

A full schedule and information about ticket sales can be found here, and all matches can be viewed live here.
