by on January 6, 2023

Blizzard has announced that the time limited Overwatch 2 mode, Battle for Olympus, will be running from now until January 19th.

The mode will change seven of the Overwatch 2 heroes so that their ultimates now have different effects, and also some new voicelines and interactions with one another, due to the “Battle for Olympus” factors.
