Blizzard is getting into the festive spirit by giving back to their players. The Overwatch developers are giving away free loot boxes to all their players to celebrate Christmas.
Currently, Overwatch players are taking part in the new event called Winter Wonderland. With the release of the new event, Blizzard came out with new loot boxes. The new Winter Loot Boxes contain event exclusive loot, which can only been obtained during the Winter Wonderland event. Five of these loot boxes are being given away by Blizzard.
The gifts are available now for all players, and there is no expiration date on them, however, the Winter Loot boxes are available during the event. So you don’t have to be in a hurry to open your gifts. The loot these boxes contain is completely random, so players have a chance of getting legendary items from them.
The Winter Loot boxes contain exclusive loot which can only be obtained by opening these boxes. Some of the heroes with exclusive Winter Wonderland cosmetics are Lucio, McCree, Mei, Pharah, Reaper, Roadhog, Sombra, Torbjörn, Tracer, Winston and Zenyatta.
The Winter Wonderland event also made changes to some Overwatch Maps. The maps, Hanamura and King’s Row, have been redesigned to match the Christmas theme of the event. The Winter Wonderland event is available until January 2nd.
Overwatch is developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment, and is available on the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
