Symmetra's, Mei's and Ashe's skins will be added as Legendaries for a cost of 3,000 Credits, while the one for B.O.B. will be available at a cost of 750 Credits.

Overwatch Summer Games 2021: Lucioball is back!
Last but not least, prepare your skills and your best team, as the classic favorite sport among the fans of Overwatch, Lucioball, will be back again as a limited-time game mode, and as always, Blizzard could be preparing some remixes within it to give it a fresher style.
For those who haven’t played this before, Lucioball is a game mode similar to Rocket League, where two teams of three players had to play around a football arena trying to get as many goals as possible while using only Lucio. The more goals and points you and your team collects, the higher the chances of winning the game and some rewards as well.
The Overwatch Summer Games 2021 event will be available from 20th July to 10th August, 2021.
