It’s time for Overwatch’s Summer Games once again, which means it’s time to unlock a ton of cool new items in the game’s loot boxes. All of last year’s items are back again, but there’s even more new things to unlock as well.

On top of the seven amazing new skins, there are also a bunch of customization items including an emote, highlight intros, sprays, victory poses, and voice lines. There’s a lot of cool stuff to check out this year.


There’s just one new emote in 2017’s Summer Games, but it’s a fun one. Who wouldn’t want to play on the beach with everyone’s favorite grandma?

Victory Poses

The medal poses are back, with seven heroes getting their time to shine on the podium as they hold up their hard-earned medals.









There are quite a few new sprays, including five that are related to playing the Lucioball Arcade mode. There are also new sprays for each of the heroes that have been released since last year’s Summer Games—Sombra, Orisa, and Doomfist.
