The Overwatch 2020 Summer Games are upon us. In addition to some new skins, it brings a revamped version of a fan-favorite game mode, Lucioball, called LucioBall Remix, which will be available from August 5 until August 26.
NEW GAME MODE – LUCIOBALL REMIX
This is a faster, more chaotic, multi-ball version of Lucioball.
There are normally 2 balls in play throughout the match. If one gets scored, it respawns after a brief time.
Bonus balls are periodically spawned and are worth 3 points.
Players are not reset when a goal is scored. You keep playing.
Mercy rule: Games end early if one team has a 10-point lead.
Busan is getting new pillars and surfaces for more wall-riding opportunities.
Sydney is getting a ton of jump pad surfaces, and more wall-riding opportunities.
UPDATES TO LUCIOBALL
• You can now crouch while midair to lunge down to the ground.
• Lucio’s cooldowns are much shorter.
• Lucio’s boop and punch range are increased.
• Lucio moves a little faster.
• Jump pads launch players a little higher.
• Added gamepad rumble to goal-scoring moments.
• Mercy rule: Games end early if one team has a 5-point lead.
These can be completed in Quick Play, Competitive Play, or the Arcade for limited-time sprays, player icons, and an epic skin on top of standard earnings normally received for playing Overwatch.
