Overwatch This episode 43: what's in the 2017 Summer Games?

A bit. In more serious game balance news, the Summer Games have delayed the latest PTR update, so we consider when it'll go up and what we already know it will contain.

Rather than decking our other heroes out in athletic gear, they've made a decision to give them a beach day giving McCree, Reaper, Sombra, Widowmaker, Mercy, Junkrat, and Soldier: 76 beach-themed attire, and out of all of them, it seems Dad: 76 has stolen the show.

New skins for Sombra, Junkrat, Mercy, McCree and Soldier 76 are shown above.

Overwatch fans have unearthed fresh secrets linked with the new Summer Games 2017 skins.

Last year, Blizzard released some great cosmetic items [VIDEO] during the event, but this year it might be even better.

That's compared to returning Legendary skins at 1,000 credits, 2016 Epic skins for 250 credits, last year's Rare tier items for 75 credits and 2016 Common tier items for just 25 credits. Play 10 competitive games here and you'll get a special spray.

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.

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

For players that want to ensure they get the new skins, using in game credits for last year's Summer Games skins may help.

The event is available on multiple platforms, including Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.
