A New Challenger is Coming to the Nexus
Hana Song - better known as D.Va - former pro gamer turned ace mech pilot jet-boosts through the Nexus, relying on her powerful cannons and defensive barrier to end skirmishes with a professional's flair.

New Battleground, New Brawls

· Checkpoint: Hanamura
o In this single payload tug-of-war, one team attacks, driving their payload directly into the enemy core to achieve victory, and another team defends, fighting back the attackers to delay their approach. Both sides need to be quick—the clock's ticking.

· Special Delivery
o A dual-payload scrum that makes every player Tracer with the Total Recall talent and auto-exploding Pulse Bombs. Eliminating one of your opponents deals direct damage to the enemy core—using a Pulse Bomb for a killing blow deals even more!
