Here are the new skins for this year's Overwatch Summer Games. In addition to new skins and the return of all previous Summer Games items, this event also features a brand new Lucioball map that's been modified for the wall ride ability.

When do the Overwatch Summer Games 2018 begin?

The 2018 Summer Games event will kick off in Overwatch tomorrow, and it will bring with it some new content for fans to sink their teeth into.

At present, we know there'll be at least five new Legendary skins for this year's event, all consistent with the holiday or sportswear that we've seen other heroes donning in previous Summer Games over the last two years.

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.

And below are the Twitter embeds where fans can get a look at what each new skin will look like.


When will the Overwatch Summer Games skins be released?

This year's games will be based around Busan in South Korea, which as we noted in the past could be Blizzard's way of tipping their hats towards their ardent Overwatch playerbase in Korea.

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.

You can either play the game and collect lootboxes in the hope you will get your favourite skin during the event, or you can buy specific skins in the Hero Gallery.

This special one-off lootbox promises one item, be it a spray, skin or highlight reel from the Summer Games Event.
