You’ve got five new Loot Boxes in Overwatch.
Overwatch’s winter event has been going on for some time now. It added a holiday coat of paint, new game modes, and unique items. This last one is of particular note, as they can only be unlocked through Overwatch’s Loot Boxes and during this winter event. Usually these boxes to be earned by leveling up or other special events, but that’s not the case here. All players have received five Loot Boxes as a special gift from Blizzard.
There is nothing special about getting these gifts. No obstacles to overcome or hoops to jump through. All players need to do is log into Overwatch before January 2nd, and they’ve got five shiny new presents.
Of course, these are the same Loot Boxes that are present in the rest of the game. You may get something unbelievably rare, or common items. It’s all up to the mercy of the random number generator. My haul was rather underwhelming, but I still appreciate the sentiment. Hopefully you’ll have better luck that I did. So Happy Holidays and have fun unwrapping.
