It’s been a long time since a new hero was added to Overwatch. But with Overwatch 2 around the corner, Sojourn is finally ready to join the fight as the game’s latest addition to its roster.
Sojourn has been teased for several years now, originally appearing in the Overwatch 2 debut at BlizzCon in 2019. But now, we finally have an official confirmation of her abilities and what her full kit entails.
In a livestream on April 14, Blizzard showcased some Sojourn gameplay and announced full details about her ability set. The damage hero is a fun-to-play hero now that players have had a good amount of time to enjoy her kit in the Overwatch 2 beta before the game launches in Oct. 2022.
The gameplay video above shows all of the new hero’s abilities in action, including her Railgun weapon, which is the focal point of her entire kit. The versatile weapon has two types of firing modes, and her ultimate buffs the gun in a cool way.
Keep in mind, however, that the abilities could change at any time, especially considering she’s a new hero and Overwatch 2 is only in beta. Several of the game’s heroes have received reworks and balancing changes, and Sojourn is likely to experience the same eventually.
Here are all of Sojourn’s abilities in Overwatch 2 as they currently stand in the game’s beta ahead of its full release.
