Overwatch Gets 100 New Items, Rocket League Minigame

Blizzard has announced an Olympic themed new addition to their popular competitive shooter, Overwatch, with over 100 new items including skins, sprays, and victory poses. Not to mention a super cool new game mode. And honestly, it looks pretty sweet. Check it out:

Lucioball is, let’s be honest, Rocket League, but I couldn’t care less because that looks amazing. People are going to get really good at strategic wall rides and speed boost soon.

Some of those skins are amazing (All of them in the image up there, really) some of them are less inspiring (I think Tjorbjorn already HAS a blue skin?), and there’s no sign of any skins yet for my beloved Reinhardt.

Here’s how it’s going to work: The event lasts three weeks, and the Summer Games lootboxes are replacing the regular lootboxes for the duration. You shouldn’t have to do anything crazy to get the skins, just play, but the chances of unlocking everything in three weeks are…not likely.

What do you think?
