If you’re among many owners of Overwatch, you’ll be pleased to know that Blizzard decided to extend Christmas until January 5th. It means that if you already own the game, you can snag 5 free Overwatch Christmas Loot boxes just by logging-in! However, if you never had a chance to play Overwatch, you can still participate in the community’s annual celebration and pick up your presents since the game is free to play until January 4th.
While PC players can hop right into it and download the game, console gamers will have to make sure that their Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus memberships are not expired. If not, you can check the game out for free too.
There are plenty of awesome Christmas themed goods this time around as a part of the annual Winter Wonderland in-game event that serves up some new game modes and cosmetics. Winter Wonderland 2020 brought 8 new skins, and a bunch of new emotes, sprays, voice lines, and so on. In addition to these new additions to the collection, players can earn and unlock all the previous Winter-themed cosmetics until the event concludes.
It’s a great time to familiarize yourself with the Overwatch franchise. Jeff Kaplan in his previous developer update said that during BlizzConline (which is scheduled for February) there will be some news regarding Overwatch 2. We’re sure that Blizzard might even show some extended gameplay or reveal the launch date for the upcoming game. Having in mind the fact that all of the cosmetic goods earned in Overwatch will be transferred to your overwatch 2 account, there’s no better time to start playing and expand your collection.
