The new mode in Overwatch 2 grants you godlike abilities never seen before. The new limited-time game mode ‘transforms’ seven of the game’s characters into fearful warriors. For example, Roadhog can transform into a huge, rock-throwing cyclops, while Widowmaker can turn her foes to stone.

Overwatch 2’s Battle for Olympus mode is now available until January 19. Check out below all the details!

Overwatch 2 Battle For Olympus Mode Features

The Greek god-themed mode in Overwatch 2’s trailer left us in awe with its “divine benefits,” but it doesn’t exactly say what they are. But it most likely implies voice lines, sprays, titles, and maybe a skin based on prior limited event modes. Quite impressive, isn’t it?!

As seen in the trailer, some fascinating new abilities are available, such as Pharah moving freely and healing during her Barrage ultimate and Junker Queen summoning lightning during her Rampage ultimate. We can also spot a reference to L’Cio’s Soundwave (also known as “boop”), which may stun an opponent, and Ramattra’s Ravenous Vortex, which can pull adversaries off the ground. How cool is that?!

And there’s more.

The Ilios map will also alter as a result of the new Battle for Olympus limited-time game mode. What does this mean? The one who suffers the most eliminations during the competition will receive a marble statue of themselves in front of the Greek map (we didn’t see that coming, though!).

One other thing we can spot from the trailer: Château Guillard seems littered with armor packs, which are interesting because they look like they’ve been reused from old Torbjörn. How we’ll use these is still unknown.

Overwatch 2’s Battle for Olympus new limited-time game mode is definitely a delight and a game-changer! The second season of content for Overwatch 2 is already underway and will go through February. Lunar New Year 2023 will take place in the game from January 17 to February 6.
