Overwatch Summer Games 2018 Begin

Overwatch Summer Games 2018 date When will Summer Games skins be released this week

The insanely popular and wildly addictive video game Overwatch unveiled its 2018 edition of the Summer Games event today, and along with it some absolutely terrific new Summer Games skins. The good news for those who have been looking forward to it is that the games are now live, meaning that if you already over a copy of Overwatch, all you'll need to do is fire up the game and you'll be able to take part in it. The seasonal sporting event started on August 9, 2018, and it will continue until August 30, 2018. Besides the return of Lucioball, Overwatch fans will also have the opportunity to unlock some new skins, with Blizzard taking to Twitter to reveal the new Legendary tier skins that will be added to the game tomorrow. This gives you three weeks to rack up as many loot boxes as you can before the games wrap up, just in time for season 12 of the Overwatch's Competitive mode.

Lucio Ball has been a popular Summer Games game mode for Overwatch players, but most gamers are more concerned about the new skins.

First off, they revealed Reinhardt's new GridIronHardt Legendary skin, which is kitted out with huge American Football shoulder pads, a Football helmet, and a giant winners trophy instead of his great Hammer.

What else is happening in the Overwatch Summer Games 2018?

Multiple Fatalities in Shooting in Fredericton, New Brunswick
At least four people were killed in an early morning shooting in Fredericton, Canada , on Friday, Aug. 10, 2018. Canadian police say there are "multiple fatalities" in an shooting in the city of Fredericton in New Brunswick.

Overwatch players are getting ready to jump into the second annual Summer Games event in the game.

It is free to update, but the skins will cost you.

It's never been the most entertaining PvP mode, and you can see why Blizzard hasn't kept it in-game permanently like Chinese New Year's Capture the Flag, but Lucioball's at least an easy way to get those Summer Games loot boxes quickly, as just playing a single match will net you with one, whether you win or lose the game itself.
