Cosmic Crisis is a four-player co-op event available in Overwatch 2 for a limited time as part of Season 9: Champions. You and three others crash land beneath the ruins of Ecopoint: Antarctica and must work together to repair your ship and flee.

Every match of Cosmic Crisis features distinct co-op objectives and Mission Modifiers that rotate weekly. Additionally, one teammate in each match will be forced to make a difficult choice between staying loyal to the squad or betraying their allies and joining forces with the Ravager.

Solve the mystery of the Cosmic Crisis as Sigma, Roadhog, Soldier: 76, Mei, Torbjorn, Widowmaker, Lifeweaver, Moira, Ana, or Illari! Cosmic Crisis is available in Overwatch 2 until March 12, 2024
