If you remember the Summer Games event from last year, then you know the drill for the current. There are a number of new skins available for your favorite characters. For example, Soldier 76 commits the ultimate sin by donning cargo shorts and a Hawaiian shirt (which isn’t so bad), but adds in sandals with socks (are you kidding me?). His signature assault rifle also is replaced — rather humorously we might add — with an “A Salt Rifle”.
McCree goes for the surfer dude look with this lifeguard attire, straw hat and Desert Seagull six-shooter, while Sombra takes up snorkeling. For everything that Summer Games has in store, check out this trailer from Blizzard:
