Overwatch has just introduced the world to its latest addition, with Siebren de Kuiper aka Sigma, joining Blizzard’s hero shooter. While PS4 players will still have to wait to get their hands on the astrophysicist, full details of the hero’s abilities are now available. He is also playable for players on the Public Test Region (PTR).
As an ambitious scientist that had everything gone wrong, Sigma is able to manipulate gravity as a weapon, and at age 62, the Netherlands native is one of the oldest characters in Overwatch.
As a Tank character for the Talon faction, here are Sigma’s abilities and Ultimate:
Hyper Spheres – launches two charges that implode and damage an area
Experimental Barrier – can be propelled to any location and then recalled
Kinetic Grasp – converts incoming projectiles to shields
Accretion – gathers debris and then throws it at an enemy
Ultimate: Gravitic Flux — lifts nearby enemies into the air and then slams them back down onto the ground
If you want to watch Sigma in action, a livestream with Game Director Jeff Kaplan and Brandon “Seagull” Larned has all that you need. For more details about the weaponised astrophysicist, you can check out Sigma’s official bio alongside all of the other colorful characters of Overwatch.
