Blizzard's popular team shooter Overwatch has started its first seasonal event. the Summer Games. Among other things, it adds the new Lúcioball brawl for a more athletic online match. It's available now for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions.
Our Summer Games event wouldn't be complete without a display of athletic expertise, which is why we're unveiling a brand new brawl: Lúcioball! This futuristic spin on soccer places you in a fast-paced, 3v3 match featuring everyone's favorite beat-dropping Brazilian. Teams will face-off in the beautiful Estádio das Rãs, located in the heart of Rio de Janeiro. Equipped with jump pads and speed-boosting walls, this unique arena amplifies Lúcio's abilities, allowing players to punch, glide, block, bounce, and boop and their way to victory. Each game of Lúcioball lasts four minutes, and the team that scores the most goals in that time...wins!
In addition, the Summer Games will feature special loot crates that will contain new limited in-game items:
Inside, players will have a chance to find a variety of new cosmetic items commemorating the Summer Games—including themed sprays, emotes, victory poses, highlight intros, player icons, and some very special skins. Though they can't be purchased with credits, each seasonal Loot Box you receive is guaranteed to contain at least one item from our Summer Games 2016 collection.
The Summer Games seasonal event will end on August 22.
