Overwatch Summer Games 2017 Seasonal Event, New Skins

The next Overwatch seasonal event will take place August 8-29, just a week away! Included in the Summer Games 2017 Event is a new Lúcioball map, brand new skins, and the skins from the Summer Games 2016 Event.

One of the biggest changes to this year's Summer Games vs last year's is that all of the seasonal skins will be purchasable for credits. You can find out more below Blizzard's Developer Update video.

The Summer Games return to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on August 8! Join game director Jeff Kaplan as he discusses what's changed, what's the same, and what you can expect from this year's event.
