Overwatch's New Hero is Sigma, A Sinister Scientist

By Sean Carey, 29 days ago
Blizzard has revealed Overwatch's 31st hero via a new origin trailer. The new hero is Sigma, a scientist who has harnessed the power of gravity.


In the non-linear trailer we see a scientist working to control the power of a black hole, before the experiment seemingly goes wrong — leaving that scientist in a catatonic state and suffering from serious physiological damage. Sigma is revealed towards the end of the trailer.

That's all we have for now on Sigma; no release date has been announced, nor concrete details of his in-game abilities, but we can likely expect those soon. We might also see some new achievements added as we did with Baptiste, Overwatch's 30th hero. We'll be sure to share those with you as soon as they drop.
