    Introducing The Battle For Olympus: A Limited-Time Free-For-All Of Mythic Proportions

    From now through January 19th, Overwatch 2 is introducing an all-new game mode: Battle for Olympus. In this limited-time free-for-all deathmatch, heroes go head-to-head, wielding the power of Greek gods, goddesses, and creatures.

    Battle for Olympus will feature seven heroes that get special powers when they activate their divine ultimates that stack new effects on top of the ability. Alongside their divine ultimates, heroes have unique interactions with one another as they ascend from mortal to myth in Battle for Olympus.
