Overwatch Summer Games 2017 Event Now Live with New Skins

Let the games begin!

The latest event for Overwatch has started! The Summer Games 2017 is now live and ready to play.

Running from August 9th (today) through to August 29th, the updated Summer Games event for 2017 will bring back limited items from the previous Summer Games event of last year, as well as new unlockable cosmetic items.

Included is an update to the Lúcioball arena which now includes Sydney, Australia as one of the playable arenas. Leaderboards and competitive play also makes a return. Players will be able to unlock over 50 new seasonal items—including legendary skins like Junkrat’s cricket outfit, Mercy’s Winged Victory, Grillmaster: 76, and Lifeguard McCree—alongside all your favourite summer gear from Summer Games 2016, with deep crafting discounts!

Check out the new skins for 2017 as well as brand new trailer to commemorate the event below. Personally, I’ll be on the hunt for some of the older skins that I missed out on the first time around. What skins are you most excited for?
