Overwatch Summer Games 2020 has yet to be announced, but players are already looking forward to all the new skins that expect to be in it. Even as such, Summer Games expects to have much more than just cosmetics, so here is the list of features to expect during this year's Summer Games once it begins.

3 Features That Should Be in Overwatch Summer Games 2020

1. Competitive Open Queue

Jeff Kaplan discussed several months ago in a developer update that Competitive Open Queue will get another short season over the summer before it joins Role Queue in the Competitive tab at the beginning of Season 23. This will likely happen during the event because Role Queue began during last year's Summer Games.

2. Arcade Mode

Although Kaplan has said that no new sports like Lucio hockey will be added to the Summer Games, there could be a twist on an existing arcade mode like the Arcade Modes that were available during the Overwatch Anniversary event. If players are missing out on new sports they can always check out Workshop modes like Ana paintball and Roadhog fishing.

3. Weekly Challenges

Overwatch has had weekly challenges every event for a while now. They are an easy way for players to unlock new skins and sprays without having to face the luck of the loot box. They also provide a good reason to play every week during an event and a sense of progress.

There are plenty more reasons to get excited about the Summer Games event if you still aren't convinced by this list.
