The Overwatch 2 Season 7 update is set to arrive on October 10, bringing a brand-new Battle Pass for fans to grind, a rework to Sombra, and even a Halloween event. The latter has really caught players’ eye, as it features a crossover with another Blizzard IP, Diablo 4.

Overwatch 2 Trials of Sancturay tasks teams of six with surviving increasingly difficult waves of enemies on an overhauled version of the Blizzard World map. These AI foes will be inspired by the demons that roam Sanctuary in the Diablo series.

With each passing wave, the enemies will grow bigger and stronger. Eventually, the standard enemies will be replaced with iconic Diablo villains played by popular Overwatch Heroes, from Butcher Roadhog to Lilith Moira.

There will be plenty of challenges and rewards tied to the mode, but we’ll have to wait until Trials of Sanctuary goes live to see exactly what they are.

Overwatch 2 players can choose from one of six characters in Trials of Sanctuary, all inspired by characters and classes found in Diablo. Check them all out below:
