The Overwatch Summer Games event is live now

By Heidi Nicholas,
The Overwatch Summer Games run for the next three weeks, bringing new cosmetics, weekly challenges, and the return of Lúcioball. Check out the trailer below:


In the weekly challenges, playing games in Quick Play, Competetive Play, or the Arcade unlocks new cosmetics — winning counts as two games. Week One runs until July 27th and offers the Ocean King Winston Icon for playing nine games, the Ocean King Winston spray for 18, and the Ocean King Winston Epic skin for 27. Week Two runs from July 27th to August 3rd and features the Sunset Pharah Icon for nine games, the Sunset Soar spray for 18, and the Sunset Pharah Epic skin for playing 27. Lastly, Week Three runs from August 3rd to August 10th, and you can earn the Nihon Hanzo Icon for nine games, the Nihon Hanzo spray for 18, and the Nihon Hanzo Epic skin for 27 games. Plus, Blizzard adds that the Overwatch Summer Games bring back Lúcioball, "Overwatch's futuristic spin on soccer," as well as the Lúcioball Remix as a "faster, more chaotic version of Lúcioball."

The Overwatch Summer Games run for the next few weeks, ending on August 10th. Which bit are you most excited for? Let us know in the comments!

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
