Play Heroes of the Storm's Winter Veil Christmas event, get a free festive treasure mount goblin

Heroes of the Storm's annual Winter Veil Christmas event returns on December 14, and playing 25 games between then and its conclusion on January 9 will earn you two free gifts.

The first is the Festive Treasure Goblin Mount. The other is a snowflake portrait that goes great with the candy canes poking out of the Festive goblin's Santa sack.

One note, though: playing Heroes Brawls won't count toward your 25-game total. On the bright side, you'll get 25 percent extra XP from every other game mode, one of which is the "frosty" Brawl that Blizzard hasn't detailed yet.

And since it's the season for giving, Blizzard will also offer up the following shop items during Winter Veil:
