Blizzard Joins Twitch

It might seem a little weird to realize that Blizzard Entertainment was apparently not on the list of games offering goodies to players through Amazon's Twitch Prime Gaming service. While every other game out there was busy offering players drops of all kinds, fans of Blizzard games were left out in the cold. Of course, there have been more important things for the developer to worry about as of late, but they've joined the program now.

Currently, the company is doing drop programs for Overwatch and Hearthstone. (World of Warcraft and Starcraft: Remastered will get love at some later point.) According to Twitch's latest blog post, these drops are available now. One of the drops will offer Overwatch players with a Prime membership the ability to unlock four Legendary Loot Boxes and three Standard Lootboxes via the monthly Overwatch Hero Offers. This program will last until September 14. The first of these is available from now until April 27 and is a Legendary Loot Box.

The other game getting Prime love is Hearthstone. As with Overwatch players will be able to claim monthly goodies – in this case, cards. Specifically, players will receive four random guaranteed Legendary cards and three standard cards between now and September 14. The first of these can be claimed now and will include a random legendary card celebrating the Voyage of the Sunken City Expansion coming on April 12.

Note: Activision Blizzard is still under investigation by the state of California for serious harassment charges. CEO Bobby Kotick is alleged to have known about such actions within his company – and performed some himself – and shielded the perpetrators from consequences.
