Overwatch is one of the most famous games currently in the multiplayer first-person shooter genre, having managed to generate more than 1,000 million dollars in profit from its launch until the first half of the year 2017. Thousands of players access its servers daily, and now Overwatch wants to celebrate the summer with them with the arrival of a new event just as they already did last year.
Starting next August 8 Overwatch players, as Blizzard has announced, will be able to purchase special themed skins of the Olympics at a reduced price. In this way, all the exclusive content seen last year will be available again, but there will also be new additions at a discounted price.
But without a doubt one of the most anticipated elements of the arrival of the Overwatch Summer Games 2017 is the game mode Lúcioball, which basically consists of a game mode whose approach is similar to 'Rocket League'. However, the camera will be in the first person and with the skills of the character Lucio we will have to score goals in the rivals' goal.
To do this we will use a huge ball during the game, although from Blizzard they have assured that this year they have reviewed all the rules in this way of summer special game. Thus, Lúcio's ultimate will also be modified in Lúcioball, and "unsportsmanlike practices" will be prevented to ensure a fun and fair experience.
New to this year's Overwatch Summer Games, Lúcioball will feature a ranking for all players who participate in it, specific to each world region. Everyone who plays 10 games in this mode will get a Summer Games 2017 graffiti, and if you make it to the top 500 players in your region, you'll get a rarer one.
As you can see Overwatch celebrates the summer with the arrival of a new event, in which, by the way, we can acquire all the content using the currency of the game itself, unlike what happened last year. Now it seems that since Blizzard they have learned from the critics, and thanks to the accumulated credits you can also buy skins and other elements.
