Overwatch Summer Games are Live and Have the Best Skins

Dad76 has a BBQ grill! This is not a drill!

Overwatch's Summer Games is now live. Get your buds, grab a Lucioball, and head to your room to play some Overwatch just as summer is coming to a close. The Summer Games are set to last from August 8 to August 29 and includes new ranked Lucio Ball games, a new Lucio Ball Sydney map, and of course, new outfits which we have below.

A new year of Summer Games means a new year of summer outfits. And these are some really good ones if I say so myself. There's a Dirtbike Reaper skin, a scuba Sombra, a bikini Widowmaker, lifeguard McCree, Grecian Mercy, a rugby(?) Junkrat (who also has a Lucio ball stage this year), and my favorite, BBQ Grill Dad76. A top tier line-up I think, pluse you'll be able to purchase last year's Summer Games skins for 1,000 credits.

Overwatch Summer Games 2017 McCree
Overwatch Summer Games 2017 Mercy
Overwatch Summer Games 2017 Reaper
Overwatch Summer Games 2017 Sombra
Overwatch Summer Games 2017 Soldier76
Overwatch Summer Games Junkrat
Overwatch Summer Games 2017 Widowmaker

New to this year's Summer Games is the ranked mode in Lucio ball with changes to some core gameplay. Ultimates will no longer pull the ball towards players, instead increasing Lucio's boop speed, and you won't be able to boop other players. You will also be able play in ranked Lucio ball matches.

This is the second year in a row for Overwatch's Summer Games following last year's event. If this continues to be a yearly event, we can probably expect more summer-themed outfits next year for the remaining characters.
