Blizzard announced that they are releasing some in-game items to celebrate the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
There are over 100 items with Olympic themes, such as a lot of sprays, several skins, a few emotes (such as Bastion channeling its inner rock 'em sock 'em robots), and more. You can only get these items in the Summer Games Loot Boxes, and they'll go back into the "vault" on August 22 when the games are over.
In addition to the items, there's a new brawl game called Lúcioball, where players control Lúcio to play soccer with a giant soccer ball. Kinda like "Rocket League," but with Brazilians. The goal is to score as much as possible- simple enough. It should be noted that Lúcio can only punch the ball and the Crossfade ability only affects him and not his teammates. His Ultimate, Sound Barrier, now draws the ball closer to him.
