Overwatch League update adds a ton of new skins and changes

The Overwatch League has arrived and with it comes an abundance of new skins and changes to Blizzard’s popular shooter.

Blizzard Entertainment has begun pushing Overwatch as a competitive e-sport more than ever with Overwatch League, a tournament which spans teams from across the globe.

With the first match set to kick off on January 10, players can now purchase skins for their favourite teams in-game with the use of unique credits.

Unlike normal skins, Overwatch League cosmetics are purchased away from other collectables and with individual credits that can only be bought with real money.

You’ll get 100 free credits for logging in, the cost of a single skin. But, with 312 skins available in total, you’ll need to spend roughly £1000 to get them all.

Overwatch is set to host a range of seasonal events throughout 2018 alongside the inaugural league, which will include Lunar New Year and the Summer Games.

You can also expect to see a variety of new heroes and maps introduced across the next 12 months, including the upcoming Blizzard World.

Earning 9/10 in our original review, Overwatch is a fantastic first-person shooter with engaging mechanics and a host of charming characters.

“Overwatch is a first-person shooter that oozes personality and charm, but beyond that surface layer lies a deep, tactical game where your most powerful weapon is your brain. If, like me, you’ve recently fallen out of love with online first-person shooters.”
