We were too, but our chance has come to experience the games unique mode called “Lúcioball”, which will be making its return here rather quickly. For those unfamiliar with Lúcioball, the mode features two teams of Lúcio players as they dart across the map trying to score as many points as possible, and it’ll be the centerpiece for this years Summer Games as well.

    • She actually did! Sorry or the extremely late post. We’ve been incredibly busy here at Blast Away! We definitely gave it a whirl between our reviews.

      There are some magnificent skins we hope to get our hands on next year.
