Overwatch League skins update ahead of Christmas event 2017 reveal | Gaming | Entertainment

It has now been confirmed that special Overwatch League skins are coming to the game on all platforms, as fans for the release of the game’s expected Christmas Event 2017 launch.

In a new Overwatch update, Blizzard have revealed how the game’s eSports teams will be able to sell their colours to fans.

This won’t be available until 2018, however, it has been confirmed that Overwatch League skins are coming to brawls.

All twelve teams in the inaugural season will have their home uniforms available, including for all 26 heroes.

The money apparently won’t be going to Blizzard, but will be used to fund your team, with other changes being implemented too.

While it only takes one hit to eliminate an enemy, missing a shot leaves players vulnerable, as players search for the nearest snow pile to reload.

There’s the chance that Blizzard will re-release this, perhaps even with a new Competitive mode, like we have seen with other returning events.

Blizzard will be hoping to avoid the skins problem they had last year, where some fans pointed their disappointment as what was being offered.

Mei’s new festive get-up proved lacklustre for many, who have pointed out that it is very similar to her other outfits.

Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan has responded to the criticism leveled out some of the new designs, telling fans they had got things a little wrong.

Writing on the Overwatch forums, Kaplan explained: Sorry you are disappointed with Mei’s winter skin.
