Overwatch’s first seasonal event, Summer Games, begins today and will last through August 22.
The event, meant to coincide with this year’s Olympics, will feature special loot boxes, each with at least one special Summer Game item. These items include sprays, voice lines, highlight intros, and Legendary skins. These items will be available for a limited time only, and cannot be purchase with in-game currency.
Also included is a new brawl mode, Lucioball. In this soccer mode, all players are Lucio, and the goal isn’t to score kills; it’s to score goals. To score points for your team, you’ll have to hit a ball into a goal using Lucio’s Soundwave ability.
