Introduction To Trials Of Sanctuary
Trials Of Sanctuary is a new game mode in Overwatch 2 that was released in the fall of 2023.
This is a new co-op survival brawl mode where players can form a party of 4.
There are six heroes from Heroes of Sanctuary that players can pick in order to defeat the Dark Legions.
The heroes that players can pick are Demon Hunter Sombra, Barbarian Zarya, Nightraven Illari, Cleric Lifeweaver, Imperius Reinhardt, and Inarius Pharah.
However, in the real game, only 4 of them can be picked to form a party.
Similarly, three bosses from the dark legion have their own levels of difficulty.
But the strongest one of them is Lilith Moria, the last boss of this game mode.
The other two bosses are Azmodan Wrecking Ball and Butcher Roadhog which appear before Lilith.
Players must clear waves of enemies and defeat enemies to get epic weapon drops.
These weapons will enable players to unlock more abilities for their Hero in the game.
So, collecting weapons is an important task as it will unlock more powerful abilities for the heroes.
