Overwatch officially gets its newest hero. Sombra will arrive on beta next week!
Blizzard finally announces its newest Overwatch hero at Blizzcon today. It’s already obvious that this is a much different hero than we are used to seeing.
After Sombra was taken in by Mexico’s Los Muertos gang, she aided it in its self-styled revolution against the government. Los Muertos believed that the rebuilding of Mexico had primarily benefited the rich and the influential, leaving behind those who were most in need of assistance.
Sombra rocks a fully automatic machine pistol along with a camouflage cover that allows her to sneak up on her enemies. She can hack into enemy weapons such as turrets and prevent opponents from using their special.
She can also disable health packs and other aid for a short period of time and emit a short-range EMP of sorts to disable enemies, stopping them in their tracks. To top things off, she can have a Translocator (teleportation device) that she can pull out of her bag of tricks. This allows her to teleport to the device at moments notice, even if the device is in mid-air.
On paper, Sombra looks very intriguing. I can assure you, you will see tons of this vixen when Blizzard give her the greenlight to join the ranks of Overwatch.
