Blizzard reveals new Overwatch hero in animated short


Blizzard has finally revealed the next Overwatch hero, Sombra.

The hero was revealed during BlizzCon 2016 in a new animated short titled “Infiltration”, which showcases her array of unique abilities.

This follows months of cryptic clues and hidden information leaked by Blizzard concerning the hero.

Below are the abilities and equipment used by Sombra, according to Blizzard’s hero page:

Machine Pistol: Sombra’s fully-automatic machine pistol fires in a short-range spread.

Hack: Sombra hacks enemies to temporarily stop them from using their abilities, or hacks first aid kits to make them useless to her opponents.

Thermoptic Camo: Sombra becomes invisible for a short period of time, during which her speed is boosted considerably. Attacking, using offensive abilities, or taking damage disables her camouflage.

Translocator: Sombra tosses out a translocator beacon. She can instantly return to the beacon’s location while it is active (including when it’s in mid-flight).

EMP: Sombra discharges electromagnetic energy in a wide radius, destroying enemy barriers and shields and hacking all opponents caught in the blast.
