Check Out the New ‘Overwatch’ Summer Games 2018 Skins

Overwatch Summer Games 2018 event is live: here’s a look at the skins, info on the modes, maps, more Overwatch Summer Games Event Adding New Legendary Skins

This year, Blizzard has been slowly teasing fans with a bunch of new Legendary skins in theme for the Overwatch Summer Games 2018, including an American Football skin for Reinhardt, a beach-day skin for Ana, and a Baseball skin for Winston. You can look over the notes through the Overwatch website.

I tried to put one more word beginning with the letter "m" in the Overwatch Sumner Games 2018 headline, but ran out of room. The seasonal sporting event started on August 9, 2018, and it will continue until August 30, 2018.

These skins are set to be released on the game at the same time as the new Summer Games content update, giving players the chance to compete in their favourite Overwatch Summer heroes. Lúcioball and Copa Lúcioball are available, with the latter being more competitive and including leaderboards, tiers, and placement matches.

Every year, Overwatch players celebrate a number of in-game events, including the Chinese New Year, Christmas, and the Summer Games.

China bans 'Winnie the Pooh' film over comparisons to Xi
The film, starring Ewan McGregor and a CGI Winnie the Pooh , aspires to tell the tale of recapturing childhood innocence. A 2014 picture of Xi and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has also been compared to Pooh and Eeyore.

Jose Mourinho 'not confident' of deadline day signings
Liverpool have invested heavily over the summer as they look to pose a challenge to last season's runaway champions, Manchester City , but the same can't be said for United.

This year, Summer games adds a Waveracer skin for D.Va and Gridironhardt skin for Reinhardt, as well as new looks for Winston and Ana and athletic attire for Roadhog and Zenyatta.

On top of this, all the old Summer Games skins and items from previous events will be re-unlocked, and can be found in Loot Boxes or bought, at a reduced rate, from the store using Overwatch's in-game Credits or real world money.

The Overwatch Summer Games are back for a third year.

Speaking of loot boxes, anyone who logs into Overwatch during the Summer Games 2018 will be met with a loot box to open, free of charge, as a thank you from Blizzard for the community's continued support.
