Overwatch Summer Games is live for its third year. First held in 2016 in celebration of the 2016 Olympics, the Summer Games unlocks content drops of exclusive summer-themed skins, as well as Lucioball. This year’s Summer Games adds even more seasonal attire for Overwatch’s diverse assortment of heroes and villains.

You can start unlocking everything right now, but you’ll only have until August 30. To make sure you don’t miss anything, we’ve compiled all of Overwatch Summer Games 2018’s updates below.

Blizzard is also teaming up with Twitch to bring players several in-game summer rewards. You’ll have to link your Blizzard and Twitch Prime accounts to unlock them. Until September 3, all Twitch Prime members can claim two loot boxes. Each box contain four random cosmetics for Wrecking Ball.

So Many Skins, So Little Time To Unlock Them All

It wouldn’t be an Overwatch event without some new skins to unlock. We can expect to see all of the skins from the previous two years to make a return, so if you missed out on the past two Summer Games, now’s your chance.

Regardless of whether you already have everything from Summer Games Year 1 and Year 2, you can also set your sights on nabbing a few new skins. Both Waveracer D.Va and Gridironhardt Reinhardt have proven popular amongst fans, but you can also unlock Catcher Winston and Cabana Ana, as well as Lacrosse Roadhog and Fastball Zenyatta.

Grab Your Cleats, Lucioball Is Back

Fan-favorite Lucioball is back for a third year. The Rocket League-like mode pits two teams of Lucios against one another in a high speed, acrobatic match. It’s a welcome change of pace from all the shooting and provides one of the best ways of practicing Lucio’s movement speed and wallrunning abilities. This year, the Lucioball arena moves to Busan, South Korea.

We’ll keep you updated on any other new developments that come out of Overwatch Summer Games 2018. Overwatch is available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
