Activision-Blizzard has launched a new premium Overwatch League All-Access Pass in partnership with Twitch.

The $29.99 pass – which is pitched at “super fans” of the Overwatch League – lasts until the start of the 2019 OWL season, and nets subscribers new Twitch emotes, in-game skins and ad-free streams.

“Every match day, the Overwatch League Twitch chat morphs into a virtual arena, where fans from across the globe gather to cheer on their favorite teams. Now, the time has come to stand out,” Blizzard said on the official League site.

“The Overwatch League All-Access Pass on Twitch [for the 2018 OWL season] is for our super fans: an evolving VIP badge that you can wear in game and in Twitch chat, and that offers a premium viewing experience and behind-the scenes access.”

Overwatch League All-Access Pass Twitch emotes:

Each pass includes 23 global Twitch emotes that you can use in any chat. There are 10 character emotes – which are really quite cute – and golden emotes for each team and the Overwatch League badge.

Overwatch League All-Access Pass skins:

In-game, players receive Overwatch League themed skins, an inaugural season spray, and player icon. You’ll need to have your Blizzard account to get the in-game items, and once you’ve got them, the skins – as well as the Twitch emotes and badges – are yours to keep.

Overwatch’s latest PvE mission, Retribution, launches on April 10, and follows Genji, Reaper, McCree and Moira on “the Blackwatch mission that changed everything”.

While at the end of last month, brand-new hero Brigitte Lindholm was added to PvP game modes, making her the 27th character to join the cast.
