Blizzard Entertainment has revealed the next three heroes for Overwatch 2, including Mauga, a new duel-wielding tank hero coming to the game next month. Additionally, the Overwatch 2 team teased the arrival of a new DPS hero and support hero to the roster at some point.
Mauga was actually playable for free as part of a limited-time trial for the tank hero last weekend, but he’s already out of the game; its real debut takes place alongside the launch of Overwatch 2 Season 8 on December 5. “Equipped with two chain guns (Gunny and Cha-Cha), Mauga is ready to crush his opponents’ front lines and destroy anyone who gets in his way with tons of firepower,” says Blizzard about the hero.
Watch the official Mauga gameplay trailer below:

Elsewhere during the Overwatch 2 BlizzCon 2023 presentation, where Mauga was revealed, Blizzard pulled back the curtains on two more heroes who will be joining the game in the future. The first is a DPS hero named Venture, equipped with a unique Splatoon-style weapon:
The second is a new support hero named Space Ranger, and given that this hero doesn’t have an official title yet, he’s the hero we expect to debut in Overwatch 2 last among these new ones.
Codename Space Ranger
The final Overwatch 2 entry from BlizzCon 2023 is Clash, a new PvP mode in which two teams are tasked with capturing five separate points on a map. Perhaps most exciting is that Blizzard is bringing back the Overwatch map Hanamura as playable in Clash, except under the new name Hanaoka. Here’s a preview of Hanaoka below:
