Overwatch 2’s Battle for Olympus event begins tomorrow
The Battle for Olympus limited-time mode arrives in Overwatch 2 tomorrow, Blizzard has confirmed.
This free-for-all deathmatch mode limits players to just seven members of the game’s roster who have all received a makeover inspired by the Gods. In addition to new skins, each hero comes with reimagined abilities. Get a brief look in the trailer below:
Blizzard also revealed that there will be a global leaderboard for eliminations with each hero in the mode. “The Hero with the most eliminations will be honored with a statue in Ilios,” according to the developer.
Battle for Olympus runs from January 5th through January 19th.
Overwatch 2 is available now on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
