Blizzard is celebrating Christmas by giving all Overwatch players five free loot boxes!

Merry Christmas everyone! Even if you don't have any presents under the tree this year, Blizzard has got you covered. As a little gift to all of its loyal Overwatch fans, the developer has awarded all current players of the game five free lootboxes! To claim your boxes simply log into the game before January 2nd.

"It's truly been an eventful and amazing year, and we wanted to take a moment to thank you for being a part of it," wrote Blizzard in a blog post. "We could not have done this without the tremendous support, passion and enthusiasm that you've shown for Overwatch."

Your title is misleading and you should feel bad. I thought Blizzard was giving away copies of Overwatch for free until I actually read the article.

My hopes of getting to play Overwatch have been dashed most expertly, sir. Bravo.

Ah well. System glitches happen. I'll be disappointed if someone doesn't leave a lump of coal on the IT guy's desk.

Opened my free boxes...and got 5 middle fingers. Thanks Blezurd...

If the RNG system uses the same pity timer formula as Hearthstone (which we may soon find out thanks to Chinese law), then you could consider it 5 junk chests burned to a Legendary.

i got 3 legendaries from them. 2 were coins and one was a duplicate. so yeah. my luck sucks eitherway

I got a few nice things from mine. Widow's Christmas Highlight (a shame I'm so bad at her, so I'll never get to show it off), Mei's legendary skin and a couple of other purples.

Idk, I'd rather have flat coins over anything else. About 4-5 regular skins I want from the game.

What bugs me about Christmas skins is that it feels off using them any other time of year.

I wonder why they did this with overwatch but not hearthstone?

Odd.

Best thing I got was Symmetras snowflake highlight intro, really lovely.

Every other christmas iten was dups or sprays, and nothing to shout about from the regular items.

Odd.

Because Hearthstone is free to get in to, Overwatch does have an entry fee. I think that may be why perhaps?

I got Symmetras Snowflake intro as well, also Meis Legendary skin that was causing the fuss a little while ago too.
