Last year, the Overwatch community was head-over-heels for new things to do in their favorite competitive shooter. The Summer Games, themed after the Olympics, brought new skins, emotes, voice lines, and even a new game mode to the game. This year, they return with more.
While it’s great that Lucioball is back and now competitive, we’re all really here for the skins. Most characters who were skipped last year, and most new characters since then, received skins. In addition, Blizzard has seemed to reduce the drop rate of duplicate items in loot boxes.
These changes come on the heels of a new character release, Doomfist, though he didn’t get any new skins this go around.
