Special 'Summer Games Loot Boxes' are now available to purchase for Overwatch, introducing new Olympics-themed skins, poses and other cosmetics for a limited time.

Each Loot Box contains a selection of four items, including one guaranteed Summer Games skin, plus sprays, highlight intros, emotes, victory poses, player icons or voice lines.

While there aren't screenshots of the new skins yet, some pictures of the designs for Tracer, Lucio and Zarya have surfaced on NeoGAF.
