Overwatch’s 2019 Summer Games kicked off today with Lucioball and new weekly events


Although we aren’t slated for another Summer Olympic Games until next year here in meatspace, Overwatch players can prove their own virtual athletic prowess in the 2019 Summer Games, which kicked off today. In addition to taking part in the time-honored tradition of Lucioball, this year, players can take part in weekly challenges to earn new sprays, icons, and skins. For each week of the Summer Games, winning three games will grant you a new spray, while winning six will unlock a new icon, and winning nine will get you a patriotic skin for Reaper, Mei, or Reinhardt, depending on the week.

And on top of the three new weekly challenge skins, there are also four new legendary skins for players to earn. Genji’s new skin dresses him up in a set of kendo sparring gear, while his brother Hanzo opts for some casual beachwear that pays homage to Hokusai’s “The Great Wave off Kanagawa.” Wrecking Ball, meanwhile, can hop into a weaponized Lucioball, and Torbjorn’s new Surf ‘n’ Splash skin sees him outfitted with beach-toy inspired gear that looks ready to build sandcastles as well as turrets. And if you’ve missed out on any cosmetics from the previous years’ events, don’t fret, as you’ll be able to snag those alongside this year’s offerings. You can get in on the action starting right now until the event’s conclusion on August 5th.
