Sojourn is being packaged with the closed Beta, she’s ready to go.
When would you guess they will introduce the next hero? Will it be the next phase of the Beta (inviting more people in)? When they go from Closed to Open Beta? When the game officially launches (so no new heroes in the beta)?
OW2 will release with multiple new heroes–they’ve said that at every step of the game’s development. I’m assuming then that they are going to want to beta-test the new heroes to better tune them before launch. Plus releasing new heroes is one of the biggest ways to spike attention and excitement.
