Overwatch Gives the Gift of Five Free Holiday Loot Boxes for Limited Time

on December 26, 2016 11:08 AM

With the holidays in full swing and surely a number of new players joining the game, Overwatch is giving fans of old and new players a holiday gift to look forward to in the form of free holiday loot boxes for a limited time.

Blizzard Entertainment is currently running a promotion in Overwatch to coincide with the holidays that will give players five free holiday loot boxes by logging into the game.

No specific expiration date has been provided for the giveaway, though with the game’s currently-running holiday event scheduled to end on January 2nd, it’s safe to assume that the free loot boxes will be available through the end of the game’s holiday event.

To grab the free loot boxes, all players have to do is log into Overwatch on Battle.net while the promotion is running and a message will appear and provide players with their five free loot boxes – the full message can be read below:


It has truly been an eventful and amazing year, and we wanted to take a moment to thank you for being a part of it. We could not have done this without the tremendous support, passion, and enthusiasm that you’ve shown for Overwatch.

From the entire Blizzard team, we wish you and yours the very best and look forward to spending an exciting 2017 with you!

Overwatch is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
