Summer Games 2021 will include a slew of content starting with everyone's favorite, Lucio Ball. Lucio Ball last year included two new maps, Sydney Harbour Arena and Busan Stadium, with a Remix version which have obstacles for Lucio's on the field to wallride fast onto the goalposts.

2. Weekly Challenges

Weekly Challenges have become the staple for events. Starting off players with sprays, stickers, and skins for players to earn. Three weeks of rewards for players to earn with every win counting as two points to reach the goal faster. Loot boxes also increase a player's chance at receiving skins, player icons, voice lines, emotes, victory poses, and past Summer game rewards.

3. Skins
