Blizzcon 2016 – Blizzard Finally Reveals Overwatch’s Newest Hero, Sombra

After many months of teasing and endless countdowns, Blizzard has finally revealed Overwatch‘s newest hero, Sombra.


“Stealth and debilitating attacks make Sombra a powerful infiltrator. Her hacking can disrupt her enemies, ensuring they’re easier to take out, while her EMP provides the upper hand against multiple foes at once. Sombra’s ability to Translocate and camouflage herself makes her a hard target to pin down.”


Check out a list of her abilities in detail below.



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



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



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.



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).



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


Also with her reveal, we’ve also been treated to an animated video of her origin story as well as a brand new cinematic with a few other familiar faces too.
