Battle for Olympus is a free-for-all Deathmatch mode that reimagines seven of the game’s heroes with new abilities that are exclusive to the mode. The seven heroes are Junker Queen, Roadhog, Pharah, Lucio, Ramattra, Widowmaker, and Reinhardt, basically every hero that has been given a new Greek-inspired skin. You can catch a glimpse at each of the heroes in action in the official Battle for Olympus trailer.
According to Blizzard, the studio will be keeping track of eliminations made in the LTM on a global leaderboard. The hero with the most eliminations will be digitally celebrated with a statue on the Ilios map. Players are encouraged to stay tuned to the Overwatch social channels for leaderboard updates.
