Overwatch’s Summer Games event is returning for another year.
Blizzard has confirmed it’ll bring back the Summer Games for a third season. Year one brought Overwatch to Rio, while last year took to Sydney for Lúcioball. The event begins on Aug. 9. “You’ll get a kick out of this,” Blizzard wrote on Twitter. “Team up with your friends for Summer Games on Aug. 9.”
Judging from the teaser post on Twitter, Overwatch is getting a new Lúcioball map set in Busan, South Korea.
As usual, Overwatch fans can expect a pile of new skins ready to be unlocked in the event loot boxes. Lúcioball is back, too, of course. Fans love the seasonal event—especially the competitive mode, Copa Lúcioball, that was added last year. Special sprays were up for grabs for those who complete their Copa Lúcioball placement matches, and it’s likely it’ll work the same in this year’s event.
Skins from previous years will return to Overwatch at a discounted price. As for new skins, Blizzard isn’t giving up any hints just yet. Blizzard does often let a few hints out in the lead-up to its seasonal events, but there’s no guarantee. Last year’s Summer Games skins were some of the best released all year, so Blizzard has to step up its game.
Lifeguard McCree, Winged Victory Mercy, Grillmaster: 76, and Côte d’Azur Widowmaker? Those are going to be hard skins to out-do.
