Hello fellow Heroes!

Blizzcon 2016 is in full force today and Blizzard just announced the newest character to join the heroes of Overwatch, Sombra. What we know right now, based off her introduction video, is that; she may work for “the bad guys” but she doesn’t seem bad herself, she is a hacker that can potentially have the power to “shut down” or control electronic devices/other characters (just how has not been released yet). Additionally Sombra was shown teleporting to her own personal teleporter and using a sub-machine gun. More importantly she can turn invisible. Sombra looks like an amazing new edition to the Overwatch team and we can’t wait until November 8th when she is added to the PTR!

UPDATE! Sombra’s overview in live on the Overwatch site! I am already weeping for Reinhardt’s shield.

Watch the Sombra’s introduction video below and let us know what you think about the world’s newest hero!

 

UPDATE 2! From the Blizzcon Overwatch: What’s New Panel we got a chance to see a concept of Sombra’s alternative skin. It is still concept art, so who knows what it will look like in game, but it is pretty rad!

  1. Sombra has quickly become my favorite character. Her machine pistol has a narrow but noticeable spread. That’s great for me because I’m horribly inaccurate. Her teleport helps extend her longevity on the battlefield by providing an easy out when things get tough, including being paralyzed or caught in traps. My fave move is toss the teleported down near a health drop, go invisible, run through the heart of the melee to get them from the rear. When they catch onto you teleport out, gab some health, come at them from the front.

  2. Will be interesting to see if Sombra makes it into the season 3 meta game!She felt rather underwhelming in the last days of season 2… I can see her being played for her ultimate on second point 2cp, but at this moment that’s pretty much it.
