If you watched Microsoft's E3 2017 press conference, you likely noticed that a service called Mixer was mentioned a lot. Mixer is Microsoft's recently renamed streaming service, and Microsoft is strongly promoting it as a place to watch E3 coverage. As a result, linking your Xbox account to Mixer has a perk: you'll get a few free games, including Rare Replay, No Time To Explain, and The Final Station.

This perk was originally only for people who watched the press briefing through Mixer, but Microsoft has since extended it. Anyone who watches one of the Xbox Daily shows this week through the service will get the MixPot, which includes those three games and several pieces of DLC.

The MixPot comes with:

If you want to grab this pack, you'll have to link your accounts before 11:59 PM PT on June 16 / 2:59 AM ET on June 17.

For all the news from Microsoft's conference, check out our roundup here. And keep watching GameSpot's E3 hub for everything coming out of E3 2017.

I linked it with my Xbox account and email but didn't seem to get any notifications. Do we have to watch something specifically on mixer or what?

@chiefwiggum16: You end up getting a notification on your X1 that you received them. You just need to link your gamertag to the mixer app. That way, when you watch Xbox Daily, it recognizes the linked account and gives you some free stuff.

@CRUSHER88: I didnt see any "link" account stuff but I did use the same Microsoft account as my xbox to sign in. I'm guessing thats the same no?

@chiefwiggum16: That should be the same, yeah. When I "linked" my account, I signed into the Mixer website with my Microsoft account (back when it was still Beam). I am also logged into Mixer on the actual Xbox One app. Some rewards popped up a few hours after their E3 conference.

@chiefwiggum16: I just went to the support page on the Xbox site for this. That seems like all we needed to do. But there was also a message saying getting the rewards could take up to a week
