At the Blizzcon 2023 presentation, Blizzard introduced a new character named Mauga for the multiplayer first-person shooter Overwatch 2. He is a tank armed with two chain guns (Gunny and Cha-Cha). The hero will appear in the game with the start of Season 8, scheduled for December 5, 2023.
According to an early leak, each of Mauga’s weapons has a unique effect. One of them deals periodic damage, while the second deals critical damage when the enemy’s health is low. He is also able to dash, throwing everyone around, create an aura in which allies take less damage and are healed when damage is dealt, and also blocks opponents in a ring, receiving endless ammo for one.
In addition to Mauga, the developers showed images of two future characters – a damage hero and a support hero. At the moment it is not known exactly when they will appear in the game. Most likely, we will learn more information closer to the release of updates that will add them.
