The Overwatch Summer Games are back with an Aussie twist

Matt Sayer 2 August 2017 NEWS


Lucioball is coming to Sydney.

Overwatch will be making its way Down Under with the return of its seasonal Summer Games event this month. Like last year's event, Overwatch Summer Games 2017 will introduce a whole bunch of new skins to the game, plus all the old skins from 2016's Summer Games will be making a comeback, too. Even better, 2016's skins will be available to purchase at a discounted price compared to the new 2017 skins, so if you missed them last year, you can pick them up on the cheap this time around.

This year's event will also see the soccer-like Lucioball game mode make its comeback, and it will be bringing with it a brand new map set right here in Sydney, Australia. Blizzard has made a couple of changes to the way Lucioball will work, removing the ability to 'boop' enemy players and changing Lucio's ultimate ability so that it no longer sucks the ball towards him. You'll be able to play Lucioball in ranked mode this time around, too, competing for bragging rights against the rest of the world.

Overwatch Summer Games 2017 will kick off on 9 August and run through to 29 August. It will be open to all PS4, Xbox One and PC players.
