Overwatch Winter Loot Box

To celebrate the holidays and show their gratitude to fans for supporting their game during the year, Blizzard is gifting five free Overwatch winter loot boxes to all players who log into the game from 25 December 2018 to 3 January 2019.

It looks like Blizzard have been hit by a proper Christmas spirit and are looking to share some with their Overwatch community. They're gifting five winter loot boxes to all players and to claim the gifts, you just have to run the game and you'll be automatically awarded five Christmas gifts from Blizzard. If only my dealer was this generous.

These gifts are coming with Overwatch's annual Winter Wonderland event and they include, rare skins, sprays, emotes and victory lines. You can also get every item from the Winter Wonderland but keep in mind that gifts are random and there are no guarantees what you can get.

Some of the items included in Overwatch's annual winter event are legendary skins like Sugar Plum Fairy Mercy, Krampus Junkrat, Biathlon Widowmaker, Snow Fox Lucio, Snowboarder Zarya and Figure Skater Symmetra along with three new epic skins - Gift Wrap Bastion, Winter Ashe and Festive Reinhardt.

These skins usually cost around 3,000 credits so it would be great to get some of them in those free loot boxes especially the Krampus Junkart skin which is the most popular one among the new winter additions.

To be honest, we're never that lucky to get the best possible stuff from loot boxes and we usually end up with some sprays or less impressive items. Well at least it's free so we can't really moan about anything but our poor luck.

Anyway, you can claim these gifts until 3 January 2019 when the free offer will expire. For more gaming Christmas gifts we suggest you check out what Ubisoft is gifting to Rainbow Six Siege players. This offer is also time-limited so you better hurry up and claim it before the holiday season ends.
