Embrace Your Inner Hero in Overwatch 2’s Battle for Olympus Seasonal Event

The long-awaited follow-up to the original team-based shooter, having just recently been released, has already established itself as a fan favorite with players strategizing to win and sharing their thoughts on various features and mechanics on forums and social media. In an effort to maintain its appeal and relevance, Blizzard has announced a new limited-time event: the clash for the throne of the gods.

Inspired by greek mythology (look at these guys), this intense battle royale will feature seven heroes with special powers that have been reworked that draw upon the divine might of ancient deities. The stealthy and lethal sniper, for example, will have the ability to turn opponents into stone, using the mythical creature’s power. The ruler of the scrapyard, wielding the strength of Zeus, will employ her commanding voice to wreak havoc on the battlefield. Roadhog will transform into a giant cyclops and shoot boulders, while Reinhardt becomes a Minotaur and charges with increased speed. The skilled aerial assailant will be imbued with the power of Hades, able to shoot three rockets at once.

The special event will take place from the fifth of January to the nineteenth of January and will be set in the map the castle of the Guillard family, where players may come across repurposed armor packs that serve an mysterious function. On the map a location in the game, the player with the most eliminations during the event will be honored with their own sculpture made of marble. The trailer for the event promises divine rewards for players, though it is unclear exactly what these will consist of. Earlier limited-time events have offered titles, short phrases spoken by characters, sprays, and skins, so it is likely that players can expect similar in-game bonuses.

In addition to the confrontation for the throne of the gods event, there will also be a Lunar New Year limited event running from January 17th to February 6th. This adds even more excitement and content for players to enjoy in the coming weeks.


As a enthusiast of both the team-based shooter and Greek mythology, I am excited to see these two elements blended in the Battle for Olympus event. The idea of controlling characters with altered abilities with mythological powers brings a fresh layer of tactical depth to the game, and I can’t wait to see how these powers will change the way I play. The promise of blessings from the gods also provides an additional motivation to participate in the event.

Overall, I am looking forward to immersing myself in the Battle for Olympus and experiencing all that it has to offer.

Release Date:

The Battle for Olympus event will take place from the fifth of January to January 19th.
