New Heroes


Kiriko is one of the final heroes standing in the line. There are multiple ways to unlock her; we have described that here as clearly as day. Do take a look!

However, there is also Junker Queen and Sojourn. All you have to do is, log into your Overwatch 2 account just before Season 2 starts. Not like they are gonna disappear after that; they will be in the store to be purchased if you want them in your arsenal permanently. Who knows, Devs might be considerable enough to create challenges to make them available without expending a penny. I hope they do.
