Mixer is becoming quite a popular game streaming platform, and now even has shows in other genres. In an effort to attract more gamers to the service, Microsoft is announcing a program called "Mixer Loot." Just by watching certain streams, you'll be able to earn in-game rewards. For example, let's say that you're viewing Sea of Thieves streamers. If you watch a number of them, you can earn some Sea of Thieves cosmetics like the coveted obsidian items.

Mixer Loot is like MixPot, but it's not limited to major gaming events like E3 or Inside Xbox. The company issued the following statement on its blog today.

Today, we're thrilled to announce Mixer Loot, a brand-new way to earn in-game content for watching fun and electrifying moments from your favorite streams on Mixer. Leveraging the same AI-powered technology behind HypeZone, Mixer Loot scans streams across the platform to determine when cool moments have occurred and rewards you for witnessing them. To ensure you're watching a channel that supports Mixer Loot, look for the Loot icon next to the stream's title. To celebrate the launch of Sea of Thieves' Anniversary Update, Mixer Loot will be available for the first time starting on April 30. To get the legendary Obsidian Six Item Pack, just watch the completion of 30 Sea of Thieves Arena matches on Mixer between April 30... May 5... while supplies last.

It's great to see that Mixer Loot will give away the Obsidian Six Item Pack. It's really hard to come by, and the items are being sold at a ludicrous price on eBay. Make sure you tune into the various streams between April 30 and May 5.
