Overwatch: Sigma Goes Live In Latest Update (VIDEO)
Overwatch introduced its 31st Hero just last month and the cerebral new tank character certainly set himself apart from the bunch with an especially intriguing reveal trailer. After spending a few weeks in the PTR, Sigma has now gone live in the roster as part of the game’s latest update, bringing a unique gravity-based moveset to the battlefield.
Laid out in official patch notes from Blizzard, Sigma arrives with quite the arsenal of tech-based weaponry to back up his reputation as a “living weapon.” Armed with a pair of gravity-manipulating Hypersheres as well as formidable command over Experimental Barriers, Sigma also comes packing an earth-shaking ultimate ability called Gravitic Flux. Coinciding with the character’s recent release, a trailer demonstrating these powers can be seen below.
Though Sigma is sure to be a game-changer in Blizzard’s team shooter, Overwatch also introduces a change to the game itself with the new Role Queue system. Now allowing selectable roles in Competitive Play, players can assemble their lineup of “two tanks, two supports, and two damage heroes,” reads the update. “Upon entering the match, players select heroes to play within their chosen roles. At the end of a match, competitive players will return to the main menu and select their role before queuing into their next game.”
Full patch notes can be viewed on the official Overwatch website.
