Hi Marcin,
This will no longer use Junit4, correct?

Spock 2 ist based on JUnit 5 platform [1], but for now still can be used
with JUnit 4 support [2] while migrating to JUnit 5 platform.

Because Spock now is a JUnit engine (like Jupiter) and no longer a JUnit
4 runner (Sputnik was removed), you need a workaround if your legacy
tests rely on @RunWith support such as PowerMock runner. There is a way
to keep it working for now via org.junit.platform:junit-platform-runner,
as described in [3].
