Blizzard's official Overwatch League app now live on the Play Store

Blizzard's official Overwatch League app now live on the Play Store

The Overwatch League is a big bet for Blizzard/Activision, which has gone all-in to promote and support the league for its newest and fastest growing title (that fastest growing medal may be a function of the game's novelty, or a function of the incredible spread of gaming since the launch of Overwatch in 2014 and the company's last completely new game launch ... in the 1990s).

Fifty percent of revenue from the Overwatch League skins will go to a shared pot for the teams.

The Overwatch League is scheduled to begin on January 10. Anyway, Blizzard has just released the official Overwatch League app for following the competitive esport's inaugural league season, giving you yet another avenue to not watch us play. With multiple quality options for viewers with poor internet connections, cheers capabilities and the one-of-a-kind organism that is Twitch chat, watching live video games on Twitch is an experiencing that now can't be replicated anywhere else. It takes 100 Tokens to purchase a skin, and tokens run from $4.99 or your regional equivalent for 100 Tokens up to $99.99 for 2,600 tokens (enough to buy an entire team's skins for every hero in the game). This in-game currency can only be used for Overwatch League skins. The league features 12 geolocated teams across North America and parts of Europe and Asia. 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.

The new update doesn't add the Mercy and Junkrat nerfs that are now being tested in the PTR, but it does make some character changes. Or a San Francisco Shock Zarya?

Everyone who logs in before February 13, 2018, will receive 100 free Tokens, essentially allowing them to purchase a single skin of their choice.

With 312 new skins added, players will need to earn League Tokens in order to unlock them. Weekly schedules are displayed in the new Overwatch League tab in-game. Click through to the patch notes to read all of the fine details.
