Twitch Is the Exclusive Streaming Platform for the Overwatch League

Twitch Is the Exclusive Streaming Platform for the Overwatch League

It's no secret that Twitch is the premium place to watch video games live on the internet.

Skin tokens can be purchased through Blizzard. Team-branded skins were announced a year ago on December 4.

Overwatch is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

The forthcoming Overwatch League is set to take esports to the next level, with various professional teams taking on one another in some exciting Overwatch contests. In total that's a whopping 312 skins to start the season. There, players cannot only see and purchase OWL team skins, but also see a limited OWL schedule.

You'll be able to purchase them with a new type of currency.

Equally, it was announced that the game's eSports teams will be allowed to sell their own unique team colours to fans. 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. This two-year deal, which encompasses the entirety of the league's first two seasons, makes that a reality. Twitch intends to air regular-season match-ups, as well as playoffs and championship matches.

The two partners are also working on finding ways to part fans from their money with different features and rewards that will give perks to fans like in-game items and exclusives, the company said. Details on these in-game rewards or how to claim them are still being worked on, but Blizzard will announce more when they're ready. After all, Overwatch already has an existing player count of more than 35 million worldwide, and with the game's third-party stream going to Twitch's viewership-which boasts an audience bigger than HBO or Netflix-there's definitely some major potential for the team-based shooter to push eSports toward universal appeal.

"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". The arena for the inaugural season is Blizzard Arena Los Angeles, which has a capacity of just 450.
