Overwatch‘s Winter Wonderland event is scheduled to wrap up today, but it’s not too late to claim your free loot boxes.

Grabbing your free loot—and for the holidays, that’s a whole five boxes—is really easy. All you have to do is turn on the game while the Winter Wonderland event is still active, and your prize should show up automatically.

You don’t have to open all five Loot Boxes right away, but you do have to log in to claim them. If you haven’t done so already, though, you’d better hurry. The event is scheduled to end today, and if it’s anything like the past two events, it’ll end suddenly and unpredictably sometime in the afternoon. Don’t count on the event sticking around until midnight.

Today is also your last day to earn or buy additional Winter Wonderland Loot Boxes, use in-game currency to unlock specific Winter cosmetics like Nutcracker Zenyatta, and play the special Mei’s Snowball Offensive brawl.

Blizzard hasn’t revealed what the next themed event will be, but has said that they won’t all be based around holidays—and that there are a few “cool” events coming up that should surprise fans. Before that, though, keep an eye out for an update to the chat wheel and the release of the new Oasis map, both of which are scheduled to arrive in very early 2017.
