Blizzard is bringing back Overwatch‘s Summer Games this month, and players will be able to take part in the festivities on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One from August 8 through the 29th.
The Lucioball game mode will once again be on the menu, and a new “Sydney” map (alongside last year’s “Rio” map) will be available for the duration of the event. Players will also be able to unlock Summer Games 2017 Loot Boxes, complete with brand new Skins and other in-game content. Last year’s Summer Games Loot Boxes will also be available at a reduced cost.
Jeff Kaplan, Overwatch’s Game Director, discussed more about Summer Games 2017 in the latest “Developer Update” video, which has been embedded above.
