Overwatch Summer Games 2018 Is Now Live

Whip out those summer clothing (what am I talking about – it’s always summer here in Asia!) and put on those trainers as the Overwatch Summer Games is now in full swing til the end of the month (31st August).

As usual, you can expect new skins which were teased for the past few weeks, a new  Lúcioball map – Busa Stadium – and the return of all the previous Summer Games items. So here’s a quick recap of what’s in store for this year event:

  • Over 50 new 2018 Summer Games items 
  • 6 new Legendary Skins – Cabana Ana, Fastball Zenyatta, Gridironhardt Reinhardt, Lacrosse Roadhog, Waveracer D.Va, and Catcher Winston
  • 3 new Epic Skins – Mexicana Sombra, Éireannach Moira, and Tre Kronor Brigitte
  • Over 200 total Summer Games themed cosmetics from throughout the years to collect; now at a reduced cost.

Also not forgetting is the return of Lucioball and its competitive mode – the best way to farm for lootboxes in bid to land that sweet, sweet Waveracer D.Va skin.

New Legendary Skins – Waveracer D.Va

But we have some minor gripes though, as we think this year’s content is quite lacking. With only six new legendaries and no new mode, we were kind of hoping for Blizzard to introduce a new arcade mode; an official version Genji tennis perhaps?

What do you think of this year’s Summer Games Event items? Yay or nay?
