The summer games have arrived once again in the futuristic world of Overwatch. Get your buds, grab a Lucioball, and head to your room to play some Overwatch just as summer is coming to a close.

Without further ado, here are the new emotes, victory poses, sprays and highlight intros the newest "Overwatch" update brings.

Lucio's "push" ability will work only on the ball, no more sending other players flying across the arena. In case you don't already know, Lucioball will have a competitive mode this year and players will be able to gain rating and competitive points in this arcade mode. The Summer Games are set to last from August 8 to August 29 and includes new ranked Lucio Ball games, a new Lucio Ball Sydney map, and of course, new outfits which we have below. However, three sprays have to be unlocked through achievements and one has to be unlocked by completing 10 competitive matches in Lucioball.
