Overwatch 2 has now released worldwide, and Blizzard's latest entry into the series has improved in all aspects compared to it's original release.

Competitive, has been soaring with the new 5v5 meta, but the real form of content comes in Season 5.

Here's all you need to know regarding the Summer Games Event in Overwatch 2 Season 5.

Overwatch 2 Season 5 Summer Games Event - Winston Volleyball, Lucio Ball and More

Season 4 has been fantastic in terms of meta for the game, as it doesn't feel as there's one superior meta for the game right now, but overall it appears that Overwatch is going under some deep transformation during Season 4's release.

This comes in the form of the long awaited Summer Games Event, as the developers have teased it for quite some time now.

Both events will kick off during July, and Blizzard has noted the following on these two events.

Introducing Winston’s Beach Volleyball

The Summer Games of Overwatch saw the debut of Lúcioball, and for the first Summer Games in Overwatch 2, we’re doing it again with the introduction of Winston’s Beach Volleyball. You’ll be scrambling across the sand in an exciting 3v3 brawl where your Summer-themed hero will bounce a giant volleyball to the opponent’s side of the field. The first to score ten points wins. Take your shot and spike the ball to victory!


Strike a goal in Lúcioball

Lúcioball is back! This unique sports-themed brawl pits two teams of Lúcio players together as they work to score a goal by bouncing a giant ball across the field. You’ll run, jump, and wallride as you race to line up the perfect shot to the opponent’s goal. Play on three unique maps, each with different obstacles and terrain. And if one ball is not enough excitement, you can amp it up with Lúcioball Remix, where more balls--including triple-point bonus balls--fly throughout the arena!


Make a splash with new skins & cosmetics

This year, we’re featuring a bunch of sizzling-hot rewards when you complete Summer Games event challenges. You’ll be able to collect new sprays and player icons for Overwatch 2 heroes, along with a new spray, victory pose, and Epic skin for Doomfist! You’ll also be able to earn a Lúcioball Weapon Charm and up to 50,000 Battle Pass XP!

Mercy gets a cool summer look too, as she dives to your team’s rescue with her new Lifeguard Legendary skin, available for a limited time in the in-game shop!
