As Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan teased in a recent developer update – which also confirmed that the next hero will be slightly delayed – the hero shooter’s latest Summer Games event has arrived a bit ahead of scheduled. The Overwatch Summer Games 2019 are now underway, bringing another round of Lucioball – think Rocket League but as a hero shooter – and a new wave of skins.
In addition to all the skins from previous years, seven new Summer Games skins are available this time around – four Legendary and three Epic. Here’s how they look:
You can get the Legendary skins from Summer Games loot boxes opened during the event, but the Epic skins can only be obtained by winning games in quick play, competitive play, or the arcade in order to complete rotating weekly challenges. These challenges and rewards will only be available during their respective weeks. Here’s the full challenge schedule:
Week one: July 16 – 22
- Win three games – Shark Attack spray
- Win six games – Punchimari icon
- Win nine games – American Reaper skin
Week two: July 23 – 29
- Win three games – Snorkeling spray
- Win six games – Tennismari icon
- Win nine games – Zhongguo Mei skin
Week three: July 30 – August 5
- Win three games – Sand Castle spray
- Win six games – Footballmari icon
- Win nine games – Bundesadler Reinhardt skin
If you’re looking for more challenges to face this summer, you can always try your hand at Copa Lucioball, a competitive version of the mode. It’s got skill ratings and leaderboards, so if the normal Overwatch comp grind isn’t enough for you – that is to say, you’re inhuman – you can always try your hand at competitive ball-booping.
