3 Best Things in the Latest Overwatch Update

3. New Skins

As is tradition with Overwatch events, a whole bunch of new skins have been released to coincide with the summer games event. Five legendary and three epic skins have been announced. Legendary skins for Pharah, Echo, Baptiste, Brigitte, and Doomfist have been revealed as well as Epic skins for Tracer, Orisa, and Bastion, which will be able to be unlocked through in-game challenges. the new skins for Bastion and Baptiste are sure to be fan favorites, with Bastion's standard metal look being swapped out for a sandcastle paint job, complete with bucket head and Baptiste showing off a more casual, dad-on-a-vacation-style, look.

2. New Workshop Commands

Blizzard has added some new workshop commands that are sure to excite modders. Standouts include the ability to edit voice lines, and switch weapons, and some old favorites like the ability to disable collision. The full command list can be found in the patch notes and I can't wait to see what modders come up with using the new values.

1. Lucioball Remix

A new Lucioball game mode has been added that's even more chaotic than the original. Lucioball remix adds a second ball as well as additional bonus balls that count for three points to shake things up during gameplay and keep players on their toes. Lucio's mobility has also been upped for both versions of Lucioball, with increases to move speed and the ability to pull out of a jump faster by crouching. Why not check out the new game mode while taking a break from competing in the Copa Lucioball?
