Blizzard has unveiled the 31st Hero joining the series of Overwatch . Today, the company has released a short animated trailer featuring Sigma, a scientist who has apparently survived a dramatic event that has allowed him to somehow control gravity. "Gravity is a harness," says Sigma in the trailer. "I strapped in the harness." Blizzard also describes him as "an eccentric astrophysicist who hopes to unlock the secrets of the universe without knowing that he is being used as a living weapon." Teaser, who does not really show Sigma in the game, so we do not know anything about his special abilities or even about his hero class.
Sigma follows the release of Fighter Doctor Baptiste in February and its upcoming debut comes at a tiring time for Blizzard's multiplayer shooter. Last week, the developer recently introduced a new Role Queue feature that allows players to better focus on specific characters and roles, and earlier this year, the creative workshop Overwatch was an early success. In the world of e-sports, Blizzard also described in detail last week how home and away games will work in the Overwatch League next year.
As for Sigma, Blizzard's cadence is teased and revealed, and we'll probably hear more about the character and his game later this week.
