It’s that time again! It’s Summer, and for Overwatch, that means that Summer Games are here! This event was the first event that Overwatch ever had when it launched last year, and with it came new modes, new skins, and so much more. Sadly, it only lasted a few weeks, and ever since players have been asking for it to come back. A year later, here it is, and it’s bigger and better than ever. What’s more, Blizzard is showing off a lot of what the players can expect from these games in a new video for the event.
In it, you can see Sydney, Australia, the newest stage for the popular LucioBall, and with it comes gameplay of the Overwatch players doing their best to win it. Now, there have been changes to Lucioball, including how certain players play in it, and even how you play it. Meaning, that there’s a regular mode, and there’s a Competitive Mode, where you can see how you rank among the other players in the great sport that is Lucioball.
If that’s still not enough for you, you have the other Summer Games that you can play, and the trailer happily shows off how the characters look playing these legendary sports games. But wait, is that still not enough for you? Well, how about some looks at the newest skins for the Overwatch characters?
That’s right, with the new season of Summer Games comes new looks for the characters, including some long desired characters like Sombra. But you also have Widowmaker, Soldier 76, McCree, and more getting some new looks. Didn’t get the ones from last season? Blizzard is letting you have them for a discount! So you’re not missing a single thing.
The Overwatch Summer Games is on now and lasts until the 28th.
