The very well known, team-based shooter, Overwatch, is addressing and celebrating the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics by holding an event, called Summer Games. The event will last from today (2nd of August 2016) until the 22nd of August.

During this event there will be two new additions – one of those being the new mode Lucioball. This consists of two teams of three players, each playing as Lucio, take on the challenge of playing some futuristic football (soccer). You can find out more on Blizzard’s website.

Also during the event, all of the loot boxes will hold at least one Summer Games item. These Summer Games items I am talking about include skins for characters such as Lucio and Tracer and many more cosmetic items adding up to over 100. These items are only available during the event, so make sure you stack up those loot boxes.


When you next hop onto Overwatch, you should find an update that will add this into the game.

Overall, this event is quite exciting and I cannot wait to give you guys my opinion on the new game mode.
