Overwatch’s seasonal Summer Games will run from 8 – 29 August 2017.

This year’s Summer Games will feature new skins, the return of the Summer Games 2016 skins, and a new Sydney map for the Summer Games’ exclusive brawl, Lucioball.

New 2017 Summer Games cosmetics will cost the following:

  • Legendary Skins = 3,000 credits
  • Epic Skins = 750 credits
  • Rare tier = 225 credits
  • Common tier = 75 credits

As for 2016 Summer Games cosmetics, they will be available at a reduced cost:

  • Legendary Skins = 1,000 credits
  • Epic Skins = 250 credits
  • Rare tier = 75 credits
  • Common tier = 25 credits

Lucioball will return with Sydney, an additional match and matches will rotate between this new one and the Rio Stadium. Also, Lucio’s ability to ‘boop’ enemies has been removed, and his ultimate will now increase his speed and speed of his ‘boop’ rather than pulling the ball towards the player. Overwatch Summer Games 2017 will also introduce a second competitive mode in Lucioball, which will allow players to place and rank.
