Summer Games was the first ever Overwatch event after launch, marking this event as the beginning of the third year of Overwatch’s recurring annual events.

As with all other events, Summer Games items from previous years will be now be available to purchase at the standard price, as opposed to the marked up event price. For example, that lifeguard McCree skin you’ve been eyeing will be available for 1000 credits this year, as opposed to the price of 3000 when it was first released last year.

Any new skins, which have yet to be revealed, will no doubt be introduced at the marked up event price.

The event will also see the return of the arcade brawl Lúcioball, a Rocket League-inspired game that sees several Lúcios boop a giant soccer ball around a soccer stadium.

The mode started off with just one stadium map, Estádio das Rãs, and expanded with a second map, the Sydney Harbour Arena, last year. This year, a third map, Busan Stadium, is joining the mode.

Lucio Ball is coming to Busan Stadium this year!

@Blizzard_ANZ It looks pretty good last year, but not for us?

Last year, a limited time competitive version of Lúcioball, named Copa Lúcioball, also ran alongside the event. There’s been no word on whether Copa Lúcioball will return this year, although it seems like a safe bet.

As with other events, expect some skin reveals over the next week in the lead up to the launch.
