Blizzard announced that its sequel competitive shooter Overwatch 2 is hosting its first of many beta sessions starting on 26 April.

You can sign up for the beta right now on this link. While details are light at this point in time, here’s what we can expect:

  • A new heroine named Sojourn, a Canadian with a railgun.
  • A new mode called Push. In this game mode, teams battle to take control of a robot that begins in a central location on a symmetrical map, then push it toward the enemy base. Either team may take control of the robot at any time. The team that pushes the robot furthest onto the enemy side wins the game.
  • Four new maps: Circuit Royal (Escort), Midtown (Hybrid), New Queen Street (Push), and Colosseo (Push).
  • Hero reworks, which include Orisa, Doomfist, Bastion, and Sombra. Doomfist is now a Tank, it seems.
  • A new Ping System.

You can expect more beta testing sessions even if you miss the 26 April window. As of now, there’s no set launch year or date for Overwatch 2.
