Developer Blizzard Entertainment has announced Overwatch‘s Summer Games event starts tomorrow, August 4, on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The event runs until August 25.
While Blizzard has yet to outline what else is in the new event series, it does feature a brand-new skin for DPS hero Pharah. It’s her Legendary Lifeguard skin, which suggests that some sort of fun-in-the-sun event–where characters are dressed to hit the beach–will take place over the next few weeks.
Long time no sea.

Pharah isn’t the only hero to have gotten a new skin in recent weeks. Tank hero Sigma received a Legendary skin last month for those who secured enough wins during his Maestro Challenge event.
In other Overwatch news, a few heroes have seen some adjustments recently. Popular hitscan character McCree had his noose spray replaced by a “bad luck”-emblazoned horseshoe, while a recent patch is testing out some changes for Support hero Moira.
