Overwatch players get 5 free winter lootboxes if they log in between today and January 2nd (the end of the winter event). Can these still be opened once the event is over? From this I will extrapolate how other special event lootboxes work.


Yes, event lootboxes don't expire.

    Not only do loot boxes not expire, but their contents are generated at the same time that the boxes are issued. This means that no matter how long you hold on to the boxes the items inside them are already predetermined and will simply be waiting, but they'll never change. Jan 4 '17 at 22:26
