Overwatch Summer Games Event Now Live, Here’s What’s New

Overwatch‘s next seasonal event is now live. Much like last year, Summer Games features new cosmetic items that are only available for a limited time, as well as the return of the special Brawl mode LucioBall.

The cosmetics will be the highlight of the event for many, and they include new skins for Sombra, Widowmaker, Reaper, and Junkrat, among others. These are less Olympics-centric than those offered last year; Soldier 76 gets one that puts him in cargo pants and a Hawaiian shirt and replaces his assault rifle with one that features the words “A Salt Rifle.”

Summer Games 2017 also introduces a new map for LucioBall, the soccer/Rocket League-esque mode that has teams of Lucios try to knock a ball through the opposing team’s goal. You also have another chance to get your hands on last year’s skins, which are available at a discounted price, as laid out below.

2017 Summer Games Cosmetic Items

  • Legendary Skins — 3,000 credits
  • Epic Skins — 750 credits
  • Rare tier — 225 credits
  • Common tier — 75 credits

2016 Summer Games Cosmetic Items

  • Legendary Skins — 1,000 credits
  • Epic Skins — 250 credits
  • Rare tier — 75 credits
  • Common tier — 25 credits

You can check out a trailer and images from the update above, and we’ll be livestreaming the event here. The event runs from today through August 29, during which time the standard Loot Box is replaced with a special Summer Games one that offers a chance to unlock the new items. Following a recent update, you’ll find Loot Boxes are less likely to offer duplicates than in the past.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
