Overwatch‘s first ever event, the Summer Games, has returned to the game with over 40 new items for players to collect.

The event will run until August 26th and players can pick up new summer-themed skins for several characters including a barbecuing Soldier: 76 skin called “Grillmaster: 76.” There’s also new skins for Reaper, Widowmaker, Mercy, Junkrat, Sombra, and McCree. Take a look at the new skins below:

As well as well as these new items, players can also purchase all of the items from last year’s Summer Games for credits at a discount price.

Finally, Lúcioball returns to Overwatch with a brand-new pitch located in the Sydney Harbour Arena and the all-new Copa Lúcioball mode, a competitive variant of Lúcioball in which players can earn Competitive Points and new sprays.

Remember to log in at some point during the event to claim a free Summer Games loot box.

Overwatch is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
