Sigma Revealed as Overwatch Hero 31

Sigma was introduced as Hero 31 for Overwatch on Monday. Although a leak last week from an Overwatch World Cup Team gave away the name, his backstory wasn't known nor his abilities.

Many have speculated on his abilities, and some of the theories seem on point, Blizzard has yet to release specifics on the new hero besides this glimpse to his past.

While many speculate he'll be able to control gravity of some sort and use polarity grenades either pulling or pushing players, it's still not known what he will exactly do.

Just from his armor and costume, he seems to be more of a brutish tank player who will be able to control parts of the map with his supposed abilities.

Blizzard describes Sigma as an "eccentric astrophysicist who hopes to unlock the secrets of the universe, unaware that he is being used as a living weapon." The trailer shows that he had an accident working on his projects and seemingly gained power or knowledge from the accident. In the process, he looks to be in an unstable mindset and just from the description, is being used for nefarious deeds against his will, most likely by Talon.

Blizzard has yet to announce when he will be released, but expect it to be soon!
