Fun (or maybe scary) fact: Overwatch is my most played game of the decade and is currently the second most played game of all time for me. I have it on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One because I’m an addict and need my damn fix on whatever platform I’m gaming on at the moment.

At the moment, I’m relapsing back into the addiction. I just started again a few days back and now I’m playing pretty much daily at night.

That’s why the news of Blizzard’s latest hero (in this case villain) reveal for Overwatch is pretty good timing for me.

So without further ado…heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere’s SIGMA!

No gameplay details for the hero have been revealed but those should be coming out in the next few days.

If I’d have to guess, he’s attacks probably have to do with those balls he’s levitating, perhaps a bit like Zenyatta’s? With gravity control being his schtick, his powers in-game will probably have to do with movement control; perhaps making opponents slower or levitating them in-game? Hell, he might even be able to fly like Pharah.

As all others before him, Sigma is expected to show up on the PC’s test server sometime this week, with his debut in the main game coming in the next few weeks.

I can’t wait to try him out!
