The “Overwatch” 2019 Summer Games Is Officially Live

Yesterday, Blizzard brought back one of the most popular Overwatch events as the 2019 Summer Games have officially kicked off. As noted on Twitter, the games will be here until August 5th and have brought back favorites like Lucioball to the fold. Not to mention a plethora of new skins, sprays, catchphrases and more that you can collect in the game. You can check out more in the trailer below and remember to dive into weekly challenges to earn more points each week toward Overwatch loot boxes. (You know, earning them instead of paying for them.)
