Can You Survive the Trials of Sanctuary?

Trials of Sanctuary is a new four-player, co-op survival brawl where you can pick from six themed heroes of Sanctuary to fight against the dark legions: Demon Hunter Sombra, Barbarian Zarya, Nightraven Illari, Cleric Lifeweaver, Imperius Reinhardt, and Inarius Pharah. As you explore the dark cathedral, look for treasure chests that contain powerful loot. Some loot will boost your attack power, attack speed, maximum health, or movement speed. You’ll even find epic weapon drops that will enable your hero with more powerful abilities like Blazing Strike where Imperius Reinhardt will leave a burning trail of fire after every fire strike or Divine Assault where Inarius Pharah will charge forward exploding enemies in her path. What holy powerups will you find?

You’ll face waves of terrifying zomnics swarming down upon you, and as you push deeper into the dark cathedral, powerful bosses including Azmodan Wrecking Ball, Butcher Roadhog, and Lilith Moira, will unleash their fury on you. If that isn’t enough, be on the lookout for Treasure Goblin Junkrat, causing mayhem as you chase him down for loot. Can you defeat the Blessed Mother and free Sanctuary?

Junkenstein’s Revenge Returns

The popular Halloween-themed brawls Junkenstein’s Revenge, Junkenstein’s Endless, and the Wrath of the Bride return to Overwatch 2. Junkenstein’s Revenge is an exciting survival brawl where the mad scientist Doctor Junkenstein seeks to destroy the town of Adlersbrunn, and it’s up to four wandering travelers to defend the Lord of the Castle from fierce opponents, including The Reaper, Junkenstein’s Monster, the Summoner, the Witch, and Doctor Junkenstein himself. If you seek a stronger challenge, play Junkenstein’s Endless, where you’ll fight a continuous onslaught of enemies in the ultimate battle of survival, along with challenge modes including Mystery Swap, Vengeful Ghost, and more.

Even if you defeat Doctor Junkenstein, his plans for revenge will live on through his bride in Junkenstein’s Revenge: The Wrath of the Bride. This exciting co-op adventure will feature four different adventurers who fight the terrifying Banshee, Stone Gargoyles, and an unstoppable ghost and must stop the Bride of Junkenstein from transforming the Lord of the Castle into a hideous monster. Fight in all of these spooky adventures now available in the Arcade through November 1.
