Overwatch Summer Games 2017 are Here, Dad: 76 Steals the Show

While Lucio Ball returns with a new arena in Sydney, Australia and leaderboards, players can now participate in Competitive matches.

The Summer Games, the first seasonal event ever held by Blizzard for Overwatch, is coming back to the massively popular multiplayer shooter on August 8.

Rather than decking our other heroes out in athletic gear, they've made a decision to give them a beach day giving McCree, Reaper, Sombra, Widowmaker, Mercy, Junkrat, and Soldier: 76 beach-themed attire, and out of all of them, it seems Dad: 76 has stolen the show. Players have often complained that these two characters haven't received much attention when it comes to legendary skins, so the addition of these two new skins for the character will likely please fans of the sniper and hacker characters.

The Summer Games 2017 also introduces a slew of epic skins and other cosmetic items that include voice lines, emotes, highlight intros, and many more.

The second annual Summer Games starts Tuesday and lasts until August 29.

Last year, Blizzard released some great cosmetic items [VIDEO] during the event, but this year it might be even better.

According to Dot eSports, Lifeguard McCree's belt changes from a "BAMF" to a "SAMF", his lanyard reads, "High Tide" and his Ultimate replaces tumbleweed with a beach ball. Get your buds, grab a Lucioball, and head to your room to play some Overwatch just as summer is coming to a close.

Alongside the opening of the games, we get a new trailer, which you can see below. In contrast to the previous event, there are not many skins which focused on Olympics.

This year's Summer Games will offer competitive Lucioball, with a ranked season spanning the three weeks of the event.
