Numerous popular legendary skins, emotes and highlight intros are returning in the loot boxes, along with some new ones. While the game mode is an old one, it comes with some interesting modifications wherein Lucio's ultimate ability is increased speed and reduction in the cool down time on his alternate ability.

The summer games have arrived once again in the futuristic world of Overwatch. For players who have outgrown the casual bunny slopes, there's Copa Lúcioball, a competitive version with placement matches, skill tiers and leaderboards. Soon, the leaves will turn and the temperatures will drop, so make sure to earn all of your Summer Games rewards before they're gone until next year.
