Overwatch Summer Games Event 2021 goes live: Here’s what’s new

Overwatch’s Summer Games Event for this year has gone live and will continue till August 10, 2021. You can access all the content of PS4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows on PC and Nintendo Switch versions of the game. The summer games event gives you a chance to win new character skins.
Also, you can now play Lúcioball matches with your friends across platforms with the help of the cross-play feature. The event also adds Lúcioball Remix, a “faster, more chaotic version” of the game where “two balls are in play the entire time and bonus balls worth extra points will periodically spawn around the arena.”
While Symmetra, Ashe, and Sigma get ripped abs, Symmetra’s Mermaid, Ashe’s Poolside, and Sigma’s Scuba Legendary skins can be collected from the loot boxes. Apart from the new character skins, players get Referee Orisa and Sprinkles Mei from loot boxes and also get the chance to win three Epic-tier skins for Hanzo, Winston and Pharah which depends on their performance over the three weeks of event where week 1 can get you the Ocean King Winston skin, week 2, Sunset Pharah and week 3 is dedicated to Nihon Hanzo Epic skin.

How to win the three Epic skins for Winston, Pharah and Hanzo

To win the Epic-tier skins, you need to play 27 Overwatch games (Competitive, Quick Play and Arcade) during each of the three weeks. You can also earn player icons and sprays by playing 9 and 18 games respectively. So if you wish to get the Ocean King Winston Icon, you need to play at least 9 games across Quick Play, Competitive Play, or the Arcade mode; playing 18 will get you the Ocean King Winston Spray while 27 games will get you the Ocean King Winston Epic Skin. The same goes for the other two characters.
