Check out the Overwatch Summer Games legendary skins

Blizzard has kicked off the Overwatch Summer Games 2017 event just a few days after the addition of Doomfist to the popular hero shooter as well as the Overwatch Anniversary event.

The skins for Junkrat, McCree, Soldier76, Sombra, and Widowmaker all look rather beachy as you will see in the trailer.

The Overwatch Summer Games of 2017 are finally upon us, and with it, as is customary for all events, comes the lovely new skins.

You can play a variety of Olympic games with Overwatch characters, including soccer, basketball, track and field and more. With Overwatch's new re-worked loot box system that helps prevent duplicates, it's now easier than ever to get the items missing from your collection.

Without further ado, here are the new emotes, victory poses, sprays and highlight intros the newest "Overwatch" update brings. While the game mode is an old one, it comes with some interesting modifications wherein Lucio's ultimate ability is increased speed and reduction in the cool down time on his alternate ability. What's more is, last year's gear will be cheaper than the new ones.

The previous skin teasers from game director Jeff Kaplan were all confirmed with the exception of Reaper, whom Kaplan didn't mention in the past video. Were the Summer Games past year your favourite event?

According to Blizzard, Copa Lucioball will allow players to place and rank for the duration of the event.
