Blizzard has revealed some of the legendary skins coming to Overwatch with this year’s Summer Games.
The Summer Games annual event is returning on August 9, and as with every other in-game event will introduce an event loot box with brand-new skins and other cosmetics.
Blizzard has begun to reveal some of those items, showing off new Legendary skins for D.Va, Rheinhardt, Winston and Ana on Twitter ahead of the event kick-off.

Summer Games was the very first seasonal event to be held in Overwatch. Originally paying tribute to the Olympic Games in 2016, it wasn’t initially clear that the event would be regularly repeated, but it has since come back with a more general summer-and-sports theme.
As well as new cosmetics, the Summer Games will also offer players an opportunity to pick up any skins from previous iterations of the event, either by purchasing them with credits or through loot boxes.
The event also features the return of the Lúcioball brawl, a 3v3 game mode in which all players play as Lúcio and attempt to knock a giant ball into the opposing team’s goal.
