We first saw Sigma and learned of his unique abilities in the Sigma Origin Story video, but now he is playable. Get a good introduction to him in the New Overwatch Hero Sigma Gameplay video below and learn more details in the Developer Update video at the bottom of this page.
Then dive right in and play Sigma, as this tank is now available with today’s Overwatch Patch 188.8.131.52. As usual for the introduction of a new hero, the No Limits game is an option in Arcade, giving everyone the ability to test out this character.
Watch Overwatch Sigma [NOW PLAYABLE] from Blizzard Entertainment:
No one escapes gravity. Sigma is ready to begin the experiment.
Sigma is an eccentric astrophysicist and volatile tank who gained the power to control gravity in an orbital experiment gone wrong. Manipulated by Talon and deployed as a living weapon, Sigma’s presence on the battlefield cannot be ignored. Sigma launches two Hyperspheres (gravitic charges), which bounce off walls and implode after a short duration, damaging enemies within a sizable radius. Using Experimental Barrier he propels a floating barrier to a location of his choosing and he can dismiss the barrier at any time. With Kinetic Grasp Sigma freezes incoming projectiles in midair, converting them into shields. Sigma uses Accretion to gather a mass of debris, then flings it at an enemy, knocking them down. Unleashing his full powers with Gravitic Flux, Sigma takes flight, lifts enemies in a targeted area, and launches them into the sky before slamming them back down.
