Battle for Olympus is a new Deathmatch challenge in Overwatch 2 available today until January 19, 2023. This is a real free-for-all challenge for a limited time. The heroes will have to go face to face wielding the power of the gods and creatures of ancient Greece.

In Battle for Olympus, the seven heroes will be able to obtain special powers that will add to their personal skills. In addition to having Ultra divine, the heroes of Battle for Olympus interact with each other in a completely unique way.

The hero with the most overall kills during the event will receive a statue in his honor on the Ruins of Ilium map. Also, until January 19, players will be able to try their hand at special challenges to earn rewards such as audio lines, player titles, and the Winged Victory Mercy legendary skin. Even the play shop will be enriched with themed cosmetic items and exclusive bundles.
