The Percy Jackson followers are quaking
It’s time for one more limited-time occasion from Overwatch 2, and this time they’re going for a Greek mythology-themed romp with Battle for Olympus. The free-for-all deathmatch mode will likely be obtainable to play January 5-19, and can give seven heroes on the sport’s roster an entire host of recent god-like skills. A number of the affected characters will embrace Widowmaker, who will flip enemies to stone, Junker Queen, who will name lightning down throughout her final to do devastating harm, and Roadhog, who will flip into an enormous cyclops.
Blizzard launched a trailer as a part of the occasion’s announcement, which revealed a superb variety of particulars about what we are able to count on from Battle for Olympus. Gamers will have the ability to earn “divine rewards,” and whereas they don’t specify what that entails, it’s prone to be the standard roundup of voice strains, sprays, victory poses, and hopefully the skins that we are able to see within the trailer, as a result of they give the impression of being sick as hell.
The epic free-for-all battles will happen on what I think about the very best arcade map: Château Guillard. However the enjoyable doesn’t cease there, as a result of after the occasion is over, whichever hero has secured probably the most eliminations all through the occasion will get a marble statue of their likeness added to the management map Ilios. Seems to be like our favourite heroes have an opportunity at immortality.
Whereas Overwatch 2 hasn’t precisely been my favourite sport as of late, I’m a sucker for Greek mythology. I’m not alone right here, and Blizzard is aware of precisely what they’re doing in getting some extra gamers again into the sport. It appears like the sport’s second Season is gonna be chock filled with occasions, as a result of even earlier than Battle for Olympus concludes, we’ll be into the Lunar New 12 months occasion that runs from January 17-February 6 this 12 months.
