The Summer Games is an annual seasonal event in Overwatch. The event has special Loot Boxes, 112 exclusive cosmetics, and an exclusive brawl, Lúcioball. The first Summer Games event started on August 2, 2016, and ended on August 23, 2016. The second Summer Games will run from August 8 to August 29, 2017. The popular LucioBall will be returning this year which is a special brawl based on soccer, which takes place on Estádio das Rãs. There are two teams of three Lúcios, with a modified move-set. The objective is to knock the ball into the opposing team’s goal. The team with the most points when the timer runs out wins. Both the brawl and its map are exclusive to the Summer Games.
