Overwatch 2 Season 2 trailer is all Greek to me
The Overwatch 2 Season 2 battle pass trailer showcases a Greek motif worthy of the Gods, along with a new Mythic skin that’s fully-charged. Come for the skins, stay for the new maps and mode.
We're a week away from the Overwatch 2 Season 2 launch and we now know the theme and goodies in-store. Along with new tempo tank Ramattra and a new, Nepal-adjace map in Shambali is an entire Greek-themed battle pass, with a Mythic Junker Queen skin waiting for those who can climb to Giant Lady Olympus.
Take a look at the trailer below.
A Season 2 pass for all seasons
Launching December 6, this battle pass is chock full of fantastic, new skins if the trailer is any indicator. Fans also got a small taste of what to expect from the Christmas event. This includes a look at an ice queen Brigitte skin and Zenyatta decked out in only the tastiest gingerbread.
Expect weekly shop skins such as the cyclops Roadhog skin, Widowmaker sporting a snaked-up motif, and everyone's favorite charging tank Reinhardt as the Bull of Minos. Are we sure this isn't a Hades cross-over?
In addition to new souvenirs, skins, and sprays, the update also includes a new, limited game mode. While no details are available, the Battle For Olympus game mode begins on January 5. According to Blizzard a new content roadmap is set for later today while the official loop at Shambali comes on December 2. The new payload map shares a similar aesthetic to Nepal but features a much darker tone, indicating that this may be the home base of Ramattra and the Omnic rebels.
And let's not get started on the Mythic, Zeus-themed Junker Queen skin that features everyone's favorite giant woman decked out in lighting and a brand new, terrifying axe. Someone should probably tell Kratos that the Greek gods are back and this time want to take over the payload.
