Overwatch's Newest Hero Sigma Gets An Origin Video

Blizzard has been teasing a new hero for Overwatch for the last few days, but hasn't given many details on the new character. As the studio recently announced that they'll be enforcing role queues for matchmaking from now on, fans are eager to see how that flows down to the hero development. While we might not have a gameplay answer yet, we do have an origin story for the latest hero in the game, Sigma.

You can check out his animated reveal trailer below.

Hero might be a big of a misleading misnomer for Sigma, as he definitely seems the villainous type, and has some pretty grand ideas about controlling forces of the universe. Also he's, like, standing with the villains at the end. That seems pretty indicative of where Sigma lands.

It's likely these experiments that made him this way will be key to his powers in the game as well. It's going to be pretty funny to see this old man who claims to control God-like powers get hit in the face by a hamster. He also looks way too close to a human version of Sigma from Mega Man X to be coincidence.

Judging from Blizzard's previous hero releases, Sigma should be on the playable test realm soon. Overwatch is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
