Heroes never die, and neither do the Greek gods – not entirely, anyway. Blizzard has announced the Overwatch 2 Battle for Olympus FPS event that may turn seven heroes into Olympic legends, complete with a set of reimagined skills, in an all-inclusive deathmatch mode that may work January 5-19.
Seven Overwatch heroes are transformed into Greek gods within the Battle of Olympus. As you possibly can see within the trailer below, the Junker Queen takes on the role of Zeus, with lightning striking enemies during her frenzy abilities. The latest Ramattra tank has been re-imagined as a Poseidon with a swirling vortex that may lift enemies off the bottom. Lucio spins around because the fast-footed Hermes, and Hog plays the Cyclops Polyphemus.
Widowmaker looks pretty deadly like Medusa, with a capability that seems to freeze enemies inside her range during her ultimate.
Blizzard says it’s going to count each champion’s kills throughout the event, and the champion with essentially the most kills at the tip can have a statue in-built their honor in Ilios.
