An official-looking teaser video showing what new Overwatch 2 character Sojourn can do has leaked onto the internet.
The Chinese-language video was created on YouTube before being shared by popular Overwatch personality (trainer and streamer) Stylosa.
In it we get a montage without a HUD, showing what Sojourn – Overwatch’s first black female character – can do. We see her dual-purpose cannon, which looks like a machine gun primary fire and railgun alternate fire. And judging by the video, the railgun is deadly and might go through enemies too.

We also see Sojourn quickly slide across the ground and leap high into the air, then throw a swirling blob that emits a field around him, but it’s not entirely clear what it does. Does it affect enemy movement? Does it harm them? We do not know yet.
We won’t have to wait long to find out, though, as Sojourn will be a playable character in the Overwatch 2 PvP closed beta, which begins on April 26th. This will also show significant reworks for Bastion, Doofist, Orisa and Sombra; show off the new push game mode on brand new maps; and give you a chance to get used to playing in teams of five instead of teams of six.
Overwatch 2 still doesn’t have a release date, and we haven’t seen or heard much about it since
