Here are the new skins for this year's Overwatch Summer Games.

The event's unique brawl, Lúcioball, is back for the duration of the Summer Games, with a new arena and a ranked competitive playlist.

What are the Overwatch Summer Games skins?

According to Blizzard, "The Summer Games return for more fun in the sun!"

Initially created as a way to celebrate the Rio 2016 Olympics, the Overwatch Summer Games brings in a slew of new content, including new skins, voicelines and game modes for players to collect. The Summer Games event will run until August 30, at which point players will likely have to wait until next summer before they'll have another opportunity to unlock them.

This year, Blizzard has been teasing new skins every day in the run-up to the Summer Games release date.

Selfie filters now set the tone for plastic surgeries
Sure, maybe you want to take better selfies, but altering your appearance to do so isn't necessarily the best path, experts say. Requests for hair transplants and eyelid surgical procedures have also increased as people seek the ideal selfie.

With regards to the skins, there are six new Legendary skins including Cabana Ana, Fastball Zenyatta, Gridironhardt Reinhardt, Lacross Roadhog, Waveracer D.Va, and Catcher Winston.

And below are the Twitter embeds where fans can get a look at what each new skin will look like.

The Summer Games update is set to launch tomorrow, August 9, around 6pm BST (1pm ET). It seems that every hero will be getting a skin of their own, so you'll probably need to play a lot and get lucky if you hope to unlock all of them. But first, watch a teaser for the event.

Turkey's currency nosedives on economic concerns, U.S. dispute
Last week, Mr Erdogan urged Turks to exchange gold and other currency for lira in a effort to boost its value. Erdogan said China, Mexico, Russia and India will be new markets for his country's exports.

It's never been the most entertaining PvP mode, and you can see why Blizzard hasn't kept it in-game permanently like Chinese New Year's Capture the Flag, but Lucioball's at least an easy way to get those Summer Games loot boxes quickly, as just playing a single match will net you with one, whether you win or lose the game itself.
