Overwatch Hero Sigma Live Now

By Poorna Shankar on August 14, 2019 | News | 0

Overwatch’s latest hero, Sigma, is now live.

Some biographical details around the new hero include:

  • Siebren de Kuiper, Age: 62

  • Occupation: Astrophysicist

  • Base of Operations: The Hague, Netherlands (formerly)

  • Affiliation: Talon

“Brilliant astrophysicist Dr. Siebren de Kuiper's life changed forever when an experiment gone wrong gave him the ability to control gravity; now, Talon manipulates him to their own ends.

De Kuiper was considered a pioneer in his field. His life's work involved devising a way to harness the power of gravity. Equally known for his groundbreaking research and eccentric personality, he conducted most of his studies from his lab in The Hague. Believing that he was close to achieving his goal, he performed his most important experiment on an international space station.

But something went wrong, triggering the brief formation of a black hole. De Kuiper was only exposed to its power for a moment, but he suffered serious psychological damage. The area around him began to experience strange fluctuations in gravity, peaking and dropping in time with his reactions. He had to be evacuated immediately.”

Sigma is a tank, with his abilities including:

Hyperspheres

Sigma launches two gravitic charges, which bounce off walls and implode after a short duration, damaging enemies within a sizable radius.

Experimental Barrier

Sigma propels a floating barrier to a location of his choosing. He can dismiss the barrier at any time.

Kinetic Grasp

Sigma freezes incoming projectiles in midair, converting them into shields.

Accretion

Sigma gathers a mass of debris and flings it at an enemy to knock them down.

Gravitic Flux

Unleashing his full powers, Sigma takes flight, lifts enemies in a targeted area, and launches them into the sky before slamming them back down.
