Overwatch Summer Games 2018 - (Update: Event has Ended) All Summer Games 2018 Legendary Skins, Lucio Ball - Everything We Know

The Summer Games are back for Overwatch in August 2018, and Lucio Ball is making a return.

The Overwatch Summer Games 2018 event is now well and truly over for another year, wrapping up right at the end of August. In this Overwatch Summer Games 2018 guide, we'll be detailing everything there was to know about the event while it was still on, including the various Overwatch Summer Games 2018 skins you could earn.

We have a wealth of additional guides on Overwatch here at USgamer, all of which can be found in our Overwatch guides hub, including guides on how to perfect your playstyle as your favorite hero, as well as how to earn Loot Boxes as quickly as possible.

Overwatch Summer Games 2018 End Date

It feels like forever ago since Overwatch took the world by storm all the way back in 2016. The Summer Games event of that year was the very first event that Blizzard ever ran for their new hero shooter, and the Summer Games event returned for the third year in a row in 2018, having started back on August 9.

As everyone who's been playing Overwatch knows by now, events don't stick around forever. The Summer Games event for Overwatch in 2018 wrapped up back on August 30. If past trends are anything to go by, then we should have to wait until next summer before the event returns.

Overwatch Ranked Lucio Ball

Remember Lucio Ball from the Summer Games 2016 event? It returned with a few new tweaks in the Summer Games 2017 event, namely that each Lucio player could no longer knock other players away, and Ultimates now increase Lucio's Boop speed, instead of pulling the ball towards the player using the Ultimate, like it used to.
