Overwatch is getting a new currency exclusively for esports skins

A new currency called "League Tokens" will be included in Overwatch to make Overwatch League purchases, and it will not be used for anything else in the game.

Blizzard released the announcement on Overwatch League team skins just before the eSports league's preseason, which is set to start on December 6.

Teams will have access to color themed skins in the gameplay which will make it easier to identify team members and be visually uniform as well.

Nate said that the team uniform system that was already introduced at the Overwatch World Cup will be applied the same way in the League as well, and all uniforms of the 12 teams that are participating in the first season will be updated in the game at the start of the League.

League skins will be available for all Overwatch heroes, and will be purchasable with Overwatch League tokens, a separate in-game currency that Nanzer said will enable Blizzard to ensure that League-based revenues are properly distributed between the teams.

The Overwatch League uniform skins will be available for all 26 current heroes, and Blizzard will be giving all PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players one free uniform skin for any character when they go live. Nanzer said that Blizzard chose to implement this system "to ensure that the correct amounts from your League-related purchases go towards the teams". The tokens can only be used to purchase the Overwatch League-related content in the game.

It remains unclear, however, how players will be able to acquire more Overwatch League tokens, such as whether they can be earned while playing matches.
