overwatch's summer games

One of the most beloved Overwatch events from last year is finally back! Overwatch’s Summer Games event is live now and brings with it unique cosmetic items and of course, LucioBall! Fans of the first person shooter always look forward to these events for the cosmetic items that are only available for a short while and this year there are a handful of brand new items that will put the sizzle back in Summer!

There are new skins that aren’t so focused around the Olympic look and are more reminiscent of a family vacation to the beach. Who doesn’t want to see that sexy grandpa Solider 76 sporting that Hawaiian shirt and cargo shorts? We sure do!
