Overwatch Summer Games 2017 are here

These new skins flaunt more attractive hues and designs as well. With Overwatch's new re-worked loot box system that helps prevent duplicates, it's now easier than ever to get the items missing from your collection. Get your buds, grab a Lucioball, and head to your room to play some Overwatch just as summer is coming to a close.

Lucioball gets a new map, adding a space-age Sydney field to the earlier Rio-themed pitch from past year. There is also a change implemented to Lucio's ultimate for Lucioball: last year, the ultimate pulled the ball towards the player, but this year, the ultimate will grant more speed and better jumping abilities to Lucio for a limited amount of time. Seven characters will have these victory poses: Bastion, Hanzo, Junkrat, Mercy, Sombra, Symmetra and Tracer.

The brand new Legendary Summer Games 2017 skins coincide with the release of new voice lines and other interesting details. Check out the trailer below to see what's new, what returns and much more. For players who have outgrown the casual bunny slopes, there's Copa Lúcioball, a competitive version with placement matches, skill tiers and leaderboards.

There will also be discounts for the returning items from last year's Summer Games, legendary skins can be purchased for 1,000 credits, epic skins for 250 credits, rare cosmetic items for 75 credits, and common cosmetic items for 25 credits.

Competitive has its own Match Making Ranking system and the top 500 players in the world will receive a special spray for ruling competitive.
