It was a long time coming, but Blizzard finally reveals their new Hero, Sombra.
She was officially announced today at Blizzcon with a new animated short.
Along with this new short we get to see Sombra in action, working with the likes of Reaper and Widowmaker. But as you see in the short, her motivation isn’t exactly aligned with them.
We also get to see some abilities that Sombra has. She uses her hacking to get into buildings and control mechs, but in-game she stops her opponents and makes medkits useless to them.
Sombra also wields a “Machine Pistol” to defend herself in short range. As seen in the short she can turn invisible for a short time giving her a movement buff. The teleporter she uses in the short is also in-game being called the “Translocator”. For her ultimate ability she has an EMP. This device destroys barriers and shields, while she hacks opponents in the blast radius.
You can find the rest of her information and story at the playoverwatch website here.
