In this new mode, the goal of both teams is to push a robot as far as possible towards the opponent’s field on a symmetrical map. A sort of revisited convoy mode, without making a difference between the attack field and the defense field.
As for the characters already present in the first game, four of them will benefit from the gameplay overhaul of the beta : is Bastione, Orisa, Doomfist and Sombra. The other heroes will obviously be available, but in a version similar to that of the 2016 FPS. In the game there will also be the cards from the first gamestill unchanged from the original game.

Something to completely shake up the way you play and the meta Blizzard FPS players are used to.
