Overwatch Summer Games Returning

Last year the first annual Overwatch Summer Games was experienced by hundreds of thousands or possibly even millions of Overwatch players. Unfortunately, I was not one of them but fear not Nerd Nation because if you missed it like I did then you are in luck. Blizzard has announced the return of the Overwatch Summer Games, Lucio ball, and much more. They have explained everything in great detail in a video that I have posted below for you viewing pleasure. I don’t know about you guys but I am definitely excited for the new games, maps, skins and everything else that Blizzard wants to throw our way. 

“The Summer Games return to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on August 8! Join game director Jeff Kaplan as he discusses what’s changed, what’s the same, and what you can expect from this year’s event.” 

Here is a breakdown of what is in the video in case you want to skip some parts.
00:47 – Will last year’s Summer Games items be available again this year?
01:08 – Confirmation that all Summer Games items can be unlocked via credits
01:36 – Summer Games 2017 loot box items teaser

This definitely sounds exciting especially Lucio ball and the new maps! You can bet that myself and Team NGN will be participating in the Summer Games when they start on August 8th. As always we want to hear from you Nerd Nation.
