We have all known for years that the greatest threat to life as we know it are mild-mannered and well-intentioned scientists who trample in God’s domain one too many times and then go sky-bonkers-cray-cray. So it feels as thought Blizzard is putting out a helpful public service announcement with the unveiling of its newest Overwatch hero, Sigma.
According to the studio, “Sigma is an eccentric astrophysicist and volatile tank who gained the power to control gravity in an orbital experiment gone wrong. Manipulated by Talon and deployed as a living weapon, Sigma’s presence on the battlefield cannot be ignored.”
So yeah, get ready to play a tank who also has the ability to manipulate gravity. Sigma can fling “hypersphere” grenades off walls, summon a floating barrier, freeze projectiles, knock enemies down with garbage, and fling opponents up into the stratosphere to admire the view before coming back down to earth. You can check out Sigma’s origin story after the break.
