Twitch Prime Offering Golden Loot Box For Overwatch

June 21, 2017 | Posted by Joseph Lee reports that Blizzard Entertainment has announced a new two-year worldwide deal with streaming service Twitch. This means that Twitch will stream every major Blizzard esports event and Twitch Prime members will get exclusive content for games like Overwatch, Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm.

Starting today until August 10, Twitch Prime members get a Golden Loot Box for Overwatch that’s guaranteed to include one legendary item for one of the in-game heroes. There will be no duplicates. Over the next several months, there will also be another ten loot boxes.

Twitch COO Kevin Lin said: “We founded Twitch as a gaming platform heavily based on our community’s reaction to games like Blizzard’s StarCraft II. Since then, our large, but tight-knit community, our constantly evolving suite of interactive features, and a native emote-driven chat language celebrated by viewers enable us to support and grow Blizzard esports in a manner that best serves our collective fans. This includes providing Blizzard fans with exclusive in-game content for those who subscribe to Twitch Prime, another defining and cherished component of our brand.

Blizzard Entertainment Chief Product Officer and Co-Founder Frank Pearce added: “We’ve had great experiences and a long history of working with Twitch, and we’re thrilled that this landmark agreement with them will help us bring some of the most exciting esports action in the world to Twitch fans and everyone who follows Blizzard esports. Our esports communities are vital to us. We know there are millions of people out there who love Blizzard esports as much as we do, and we’re committed to making sure they’ll be able to cheer on their favorite players in all of their favorite Blizzard games for a long time to come.

Twitch Prime is included for those who are subscribed to Amazon Prime.
