Overwatch team giving their festive greetings

If you haven't had your fill of presents just yet, and you happen to also play Overwatch, you're in luck as Blizzard has decided to give everyone a nice little holiday gift. As you can probably guess from the title alone, the gift in question is a sizable stack of Loot Boxes!

So how can you grab these five free Loot Boxes? Well, its quite literally as simple as logging into Overwatch! The moment you get past the login screen you'll see a "holiday greetings" pop-up which will add five Loot Boxes to your account, each one with a guaranteed holiday-themed item.

The only 'catch' is that this whole promotion will last until January 2nd, so if you're out of town until then you might want to get someone else to grab them for you. However, if you want to preserve the 'box opening experience' for yourself, but are worried the boxes will contain boring ol' standard items when you come back, worry not as the Loot Box content is generated the moment you get them. So even if you open your Winter Loot Boxes in the middle of the summer, you'll still have a chance at Santa Torbjorn and his merry band of murder-elves.

Good luck with the Loot Boxes, and have a nice holiday season!
