The time has come. Lúcioball has returned to Overwatch. Or, more appropriately, the 2018 Summer Games have begun. The seasonal sporting event started on August 9, 2018, and it will continue until August 30, 2018.


One of the main draws is Lúcioball. This is a 3v3 mode usually available during the Overwatch Summer Games. Lúcioball and Copa Lúcioball are available, with the latter being more competitive and including leaderboards, tiers, and placement matches. There are three different arena this time, with Busan Lúcioball joining Estadio Das Ras and Sydney Harbour Arena.


In addition, over 50 reward items will be available in Overwatch Summer Games loot boxes. Past skins, highlight intros, and emotes will appear. They will be joined by a Table Tennis emote, Moira’s Serve Highlight Intro, and Orisa’s Goalkeeper Highlight Intro.
