Facebook Gaming and video game developer Blizzard Entertainment have teamed up to offer Facebook users in-stream rewards for watching certain livestreams before and during BlizzCon, Blizzard’s annual convention.

Facebook’s in-stream rewards tool was first announced in March. It allows developers to give viewers free prizes in exchange for watching livestreams on the social network. Earlier this year, Grand Theft Auto developer Rockstar Games used the feature to provide users with free in-game cash in GTA Online in exchange for watching certain streams.

Starting Oct. 25, users can watch select livestreams starring creators from Facebook’s Gaming Creator program for a chance to win a BlizzCon Virtual Ticket, $10 off the BlizzCon 2018 Goody Bag and 20 percent off all merchandise from this year’s event. Users can also watch a livestream of the BlizzCon Opening Ceremonies Nov. 2, along with a series of streams during the event itself.

To be eligible to win prizes, users need to be logged into their Facebook account and watch a stream for at least 10 minutes. If they’re selected as a winner, they’ll have a limited amount of time to claim their prize within the livestream’s chat.

A complete schedule of the participating livestreams can be found on Blizzard’s website.
