The Summer Games event has returned to Overwatch 2, which means Winston’s Beach Volleyball and Lucioball will be back for players to enjoy again.

Here’s everything you need to know about OW2 Summer Game 2024 game modes, including all its challenges and rewards.

OW 2 Summer Games 2024 end date

The Summer Games will start on July 9, 2024, and end on July 30, 2024. While this event is active, you’ll be able to complete all its special challenges to get free rewards.

Winston’s Beach Volleyball explained

Winston’s Beach Volleyball is a limited-time game mode that invites players to play Volleyball in two teams of three players each. You can win this Overwatch 2 challenge by scoring ten points before the match ends.

To score a point, you’ll have to get the volleyball to hit the sand on the opponent’s side of the net only using your hero’s melee attack. When your Ultimate reaches 100% you can activate your Ultimate Play, where your character can move faster and hit the ball harder.

  • Heroes available: D.Va, Winston, Ashe, Cassidy, Echo, Genji, Hanzo, Junkrat, Pharah, Soldier: 76, Sombra, Symmetra, Widowmaker, Baptiste.

You’ll have 30 seconds to get the ball to the other side.

Lucioball explained

In the Lucioball mode, you’ll get to play a futuristic football match using Lucio’s abilities to control a giant ball that bounces around the field. If you want to take on this challenge, you’ll have to group up into a team of three players and try to score more goals than your opponents before the time is up.

While you can only pick Lucio as a character, you’ll get to play in the Estádio Das Ras, Sydney Harbour Arena, or the Busan Stadium maps.

Lucioball Remix

Lucioball Remix works similarly to Lucioball, but multiple balls will spawn during the match. This mode doesn’t have replays of scored goals and it adds additional golden “bonus balls” that count for three points if successfully scored.

The game ends when the countdown runs out or when one team has a lead of at least 20 points.
