Overwatch 2 Cosmic Crisis Event Overview

The Overwatch 2 Cosmic Crysis event is one of the newest options offered by Blizzard. Let’s learn everything about it.

As reported in our Overwatch 2 Season 9 patch notes, one of the new things we’ll have access to is the Overwatch 2 Cosmic Crysis event. The latter will allow you to “explore a non-canon story that will test your loyalty to your teammates”. 

Considering the event will not be around for long, we have decided to share everything about it. So, let’s solve the mystery of the Cosmic Crisis together and see what you can expect.

Overwatch 2 Cosmic Crisis – Overview

As mentioned, this is an event where you have to play with your teammates. It is a 4-player co-op event, where you have different objectives that will change. What makes it even more impressive is that each game will give one of the players a choice that will determine what will happen with the rest of the team.

Regarding the storyline, before you can solve the mystery of the Cosmic Crysis, you will find yourself near a wrecked ship. The goal will be to repair that ship, but you will be on Ecopoint: Antarctica, where different enemies overrun the station.  Besides fighting them, you will have to do everything you can to “resist the call of the Ravager”.
