If you’ve been playing Overwatch then you’ve gotten to see The Summer Games event. This event is the first seasonal event to happen in the game, but there will be more in the future. Reps from Blizzard promised that these events were “on the horizon” but that they were keeping a lid on most of the details. They did however promise that Seasonal Events would include not only loot items, but also maps and modes. Adding that on a regular basis would help to ensure that Overwatch stays fresh and gives gamers plenty of reason to return. The current Summer Games event is tied into the Summer Olympics, and adds the Lucioball game type. At the pace Blizzard is going Overwatch won’t be given a chance to just fade into the background like many recent games in the same vein.
