The latest Overwatch Event, the Summer Games 2020, started on August 4th with plenty of brand new items. The event runs until August 26th, once again features Lúcioball (including a new play mode!), and has three new sets of weekly rewards.
A few changes came with the Summer Games 2020 event’s Lúcioball, including:
- Lúcio moves faster
- Shorter cooldowns
- Longer boop and punch range
- Higher launch pad jumps
- Game ends if a team has a five-point lead
- A new version known as Lúcioball Remix
Players, of course, can still earn specific Lúcioball sprays by receiving a top 500 ranking at the end of the event, completing placement matches, or completing two separate achievements (Quick Brace and Frenzied Defense Achievement).
The new Lúcioball Remix adds a new layer of chaos to the game. Players will always have at least two balls in-game, with additional balls spawning throughout the game, and the action doesn’t stop simply because someone scores. You continue playing from your current position. If a team is ahead by 10 points, the game ends.
New Weekly Items
Players can also get new items by taking part in the three weekly events: an icon for 3 wins, a spray for 6 wins, and a skin for 9 wins. The rewards include
Week 1: Baseballmari Player Icon, Union Jack Spray, Union Jack Tracer Epic Skin
Week 2: Golfmari Player Icon, Sand Castle Spray, Sand Castle Bastion Epic Skin
Week 3: Surfimari Player Icon, Ice Cream Spray, Ice Cream Orisa Epic Skin
In addition to the weekly items, there are five new skins (for Baptiste, Brigitte, Doomfist, Echo, and Pharah), one new emote, three victory poses, two highlight intros, and several sprays and voice lines. Players can also buy or receive older Summer Games items in loot boxes.
Time for more fun in the sun! ☀️
