Overwatch plants Jeff Kaplan in front of a fire for 10 hours and hands out free loot boxes
Overwatch made a bid for players’ attention this busy holiday weekend, and in some ways, it succeeded. For starters, Blizzard decided to gift all players with five free lootboxes (worth about $5 total). All you have to do to get yours is to log into the game by January 1st.
But that wasn’t what had everyone talking over Christmas. No, it was the fact that Game Director Jeff Kaplan decided to stream himself sitting in front of a fireplace for 10 hours doing… very, very little. That didn’t stop Twitch and Twitter from going nuts, as around 40,000 people tuned in to see this spectacle (which was probably inspired by similar Christmas fireplace stunts).
Of course, you don’t have to watch all 10 hours of His Royal Kaplancy. Someone took the trouble to compile all of the truly exciting moments of the stream, and someone else (that’s us) took the trouble to copy and paste that video here below!
