Overwatch 2 Battle For Olympus Start Time Countdown And New Skins

When it comes to Overwatch 2, Blizzard knows how to keep the game fresh. Blizzard will often host limited-time special game modes for players to enjoy. This gives players a breather and something new to do in Overwatch 2. The amount of new game modes in Season 2 of Overwatch 2 has given players plenty to look forward to.

In this case, we are talking about the new upcoming Battle for Olympus event coming to Overwatch 2. Players who are interested in getting new skins for the newly released hero Ramatarra should be interested in participating in this event. Here, we will go over some of the details for the upcoming event in Overwatch 2.

What To Expect From The Battle Of Olympus In Overwatch 2

Blizzard announced that with Season 2, there would be a Battle for Olympus game mode. Previously, we did not have too many details about what the new game mode will entail. But that has changed as Blizzard has dropped a new trailer for the game mode for everyone to check out.

What we know now is that the Battle For Olympus will be a free for all battle royal. But it is not just any normal free for all. The free for all that you will play here will feature Overwatch characters with Olympus-themed skins. Although this is usually just cosmetic, the game mode will actually give each character new powers to use in the game mode.

For example, in the trailer, Widowmaker can temporarily stun her enemies like how Medusa can turn people into stone. That gives you plenty of time to line up a headshot against your opponents. Reinhart's ultimate can now do major damage as well here too. There are a lot of new powers that each character can have and it definitely changes how you will play Overwatch 2.

On top of that, there are new skins that you can collect as well to use outside of this game mode. You can get a Mythic Junker Queen skin, a Legendary Ramatarra skin, and a Legendary Pharah skin as well. Just level up your battle pass and the skin is yours.

What Time Will The Battle For Olympus Event Start In Overwatch 2?

Thankfully, players will not have to wait too long to join the Battle for Olympus. The Battle of Olympus game mode will begin on January 5th and a 6pm GMT UK start time. The game mode will end on January 19th.

That gives players plenty of time to experience the Battle of Olympus. During this timeframe, you will be able to play this new game mode and try out each character with their new powers. This is about the same time frame as any time event that Overwatch 2 holds for the game.
