Overwatch 2 Battle for Olympus

With the release of Overwatch: Season 2, a new limited-time mode called Battle for Olympus is now available for a limited amount of time.

In keeping with the season’s mythology theme, Ilios’ Ruins will serve as the setting for the Battle of Olympus, which will feature seven players decked out in full Greek garb. Here is all we know about the Battle for Olympus game mode.

Olympus’s time-bound event drop date: 

The event will take place over the course of the subsequent two weeks. The five-day launch of Battle for Olympus and its subsequent nineteen-day run will occur on January 5 and 19, respectively. 

There will be a variety of skins and bundles available for purchase at the event, all of which will be featured in the upcoming Arcade game mode.

While Blizzard has remained mum on the specifics of the new game mode that will be featured in Battle for Olympus, hints were dropped in the Overwatch season 2 announcement Blizzard blog.

“These heroes and several others will be imbued with awesome god-like powers in our new Battle for Olympus game mode,” Blizzard wrote.
