​The New York Excelsior will host a watch party in its hometown of New York City for the Overwatch League All-Star Weekend on Aug. 26. 

Although the regular season ​already ended, many players from the New York Excelsior will compete for the Atlantic Division at the Overwatch League All-Star Weekend, which runs from Aug. 26-27. 


"The Paley Center for Media, NYXL, and GameStop invite fans to cheer on their favorite players in the Overwatch League’s first ever All-Star Game," the news release read. "NYXL features four starting players and seven players in total for the Atlantic Division, leading the league in both categories."


There will be a PC and console tournament going on during the watch party for fans, too. A console bracket will feature a free-for-all competition with the winner taking home a custom NYXL-themed PlayStation 4. The PC bracket will feature a Widowmaker duel and the winner will take home a ​limited-edition NYXL jersey.


Blizzard released ​new skins for Tracer and Genji to commemorate the All-Star Weekend.
