The Overwatch League is kicking off this week and the first matches slated for Wednesday January 9th will start the competitive event off right! To celebrate, Blizzard has teamed up with each teamed up with each team to create specific skins for the FPS's heroes to support those facing off! The good news is that each character has a specific skin. The bad news is that they aren't cheap.
With 312 new skins added, players will need to earn League Tokens in order to unlock them. 100 free Tokens are awarded for that very first login, but from there it's $5 per hundred. For those that wanted to unlock all of the skins available, that's going to cost you 100 bucks of IRL cash. For those more fragal players, you'll get that one free skin based off of that first time login bonus.
"Time to suit up, heroes! Overwatch League home-team skins are now available in-game via the League Token system, which allows players to support the Overwatch League team (or teams!) of their choice. Home-team "jerseys" are now available for all 12 teams and all 26 Heroes.
Are you a Los Angeles Gladiators Reaper? A London Spitfire Tracer? Or a San Francisco Shock Zarya? (It's all about that pink-on-orange color scheme.) The choices are endless.
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. Each future team-skin purchase will require 100 League Tokens."
