What is Overwatch 2 Cosmic Crisis Event?

Introducing Overwatch 2 Cosmic Crisis, a fresh co-op mode where players band together to thwart a threat lurking beneath Antarctica. In this non-canon adventure, you and up to three friends can tackle the challenge, with four difficulty levels from Normal to Legendary.

Blizzard revealed that replaying the story is encouraged as new Mission Modifiers will be introduced weekly throughout the event. The first, Death from Above, rains airstrikes across the map, challenging teams to evade them.

Although Cosmic Crisis is primarily a cooperative endeavor, it also features a PvP twist. In each session, one player will be contacted by the Ravager. Should they accept, they embark on a mission to take down their former teammates.
