Time limited new game mode: Battle for Olympus

Overwatch 2

01/06/2023 - From now until January 19, you can play a brand new game mode: Battle for Olympus. Available for a limited time, this FFA deathmatch pits heroes against the powers of the Greek gods, goddesses, and creatures.

In Battle for Olympus, seven heroes receive special powers when they activate their divine ultimates, which add more effects to the ability. In addition to the divine ultimates, you can also witness unique interactions between the heroes as they go from mortals to legends in Battle for Olympus.
