Overwatch Summer Games Skins
Now, it's time for what people are waiting for, the skins. First up is a new Symmetra skin, seeing her take the role of a mermaid. Complete with a new outfit and headgear, this legendary skin is the first she has received in a while. This one is called Poolside Ashe, and you can see it below.
Moving from here, we have a new skin for Ashe and B.O.B. They are both dressed in colourful summer gear with Ashe holding a water gun and wearing a nice sun hat. B.O.B has a great new pool tube on his head and it's a nice flamingo one to boot.
The final skin revealed so far is for Mei, making her look like she works in an ice cream shop. Finding the Winter in the middle of the Summer, this feels like a perfect fit for her character.
Her gun could almost look like a soft serve machine and her little sidekick is shaped like an ice cream, a nice touch. There will certainly be a handful of other skins releasing as the next event does so keep your eyes peeled for all the latest updates right here.
