The Overwatch Summer Games are back for 2017! Featuring 50 all-new season items and gear from 2016’s event, there’s a hell of a lot to unlock during the summer period.
The Summer Games return for more fun in the sun! This year, we’re celebrating the spirit of competition with a new Lúcioball arena, leaderboards, and competitive play. Unlock over 50 new seasonal items—including legendary skins like Mercy’s Winged Victory, Grillmaster: 76, and Lifeguard McCree—alongside all your favorite summer gear from last year.
What’s more, the Lúcioball game mode is back!
Our 2017 Summer Games event wouldn’t be complete without a display of athletic expertise, so we’re bringing back Lúcioball—and it’s better than ever! This futuristic spin on soccer places you in a fast-paced 3v3 match in Rio de Janiero’s beautiful Estádio das Rãs or on a brand-new pitch located in the Sydney Harbour Arena.
Players can choose between two modes: Lúcioball and the all-new Copa Lúcioball, which offers a more competitive experience with placement matches, skill ratings tiers, leaderboards, competitive points, and more.
