Overwatch's Sigma has an intense origin story

July 22, 2019 1 min read

After a few teases, Blizzard has officially introduced Sigma, the next hero lined up for Overwatch.

Even if you aren't in the habit of watching these origin story videos, this one is worth a look. It's genuinely unnerving! Blizzard describes it as a "peek inside the mind of an eccentric astrophysicist who hopes to unlock the secrets of the universe, unaware he's been turning into a living weapon."

There's a brief clip of Sigma's big-shouldered in-game model at the end, though it's unclear how exactly he'll harness gravity in combat. I'm intrigued. I can't wait to hear his banter with Moira.
