Overwatch Summer Games is Giving Us Lucioball!

August 8, 2016 at 11:43 PM in Gaming News with no comments


Overwatch will be sporting a Summer Games event which will run until August 22.

A mini game called Lucioball will be available to play in the Overwatch Summer games. This will be available only for a limited amount of time. You will play with three players in each team, all playing as Lucio. All you have to do is to score goals like in a real soccer match.

Since this is Overwatch, you can expect the matches to be absolutely fun! You can throw punches, wall climb, boop and bounce in order to get goals.

The whole field will be speed boosting walls as well as jump pads to make the matches more interesting. The arena can be found in Estádio das Rãs in Rio de Janeiro. A key thing to being a great Lucioball player is to know how Lucio’s abilities affect the ball. Aaron Keller, the Overwatch assistant says this about that:

“For this brawl, his primary fire has been replaced with a melee attack, allowing Lúcio to punch the ball — perfect for dribbling, passing, and shooting from short range. When you need to launch the ball across the map, Lúcio’s secondary attack emits a blast of sound that gets the job done nicely.

Unlike other game modes, the speed boost from Lúcio’s song only affects himself (Amp It Up will still increase that boost for Lucio, as it does normally), and Lúcio’s ultimate ability, Sound Barrier, now pulls the ball toward him.”
All the matches are about 4 minutes only. Score the most points and you will be the match winner. Check out the trailer here:

And here’s a gameplay video made by PC Gamer:

Lucioball is not the only mini game found in the Overwatch summer games. You can also find Olympic-themed loot boxes. Make sure to get yours now.
