News:: More free Overwatch loot for Twitch Prime users

As previously promoted in June, Twitch Prime users can land themselves five free loot boxes in Overwatch this month. Right after the start of the Summer Games event. However, it appears the lootboxes will be standard issue, and will not contain any of the event's exclusive gear.

Prime members can apply for the promotion code here, which they should then enter into their account. Users should receive the loot boxes around August 10, one of which guarantees a legendary skin for a randomly selected roster member. Redeeming the code also make users eligible to receive a further five boxes in October.

In other Overwatch news game director Jeff Kaplan revealed that the 2016 Summer skins will be obtainable through the standard loot box system, putting to rest concerns that the previous year's returning skins would be purchasable with cash only.

Finally, today sees Doomfist unlocked for use on the competitive ladder. So far I'm really not feeling the character myself, but that doesn't matter, as long as someone else is, and they're on my team. You do the punching and I'll do the loving.

The Overwatch Summer Games 2017 event begins on August 8.
