Overwatch Accounts: Patch Notes
There are three major additions to the game and they are: New Hero, New Feature and New Arena Map. This write-up will focus on the new hero because this is what all Overwatch players are so excited about. Sombra is here. Here is something about her that you might want or need to know:
New Hero: Sombra (Offense)
One of the world’s most notorious hackers is stepping out of the shadows: Sombra, a mysterious infiltrator who uses information to control those in power.
Sombra is a master manipulator who can hack her enemies, temporarily blocking their abilities. In addition, she can hack health packs and Torbjörn’s turret, making them useless to her opponents. She uses her fully automatic Machine Pistol to take out her enemies, getting into position using her Thermoptic Camo, which allows her to become invisible and move more quickly for short periods of time. This gives her the ability to slip past enemy defenses undetected, but she’s instantly revealed if she takes damage or attacks an enemy. She also has a Translocator, which can be tossed like a grenade. When it’s activated, Sombra is teleported to its location (even while it’s in flight).
Sombra’s ultimate ability, EMP, discharges electromagnetic energy in a wide radius, hacking anyone caught within range and destroying enemy barriers and shields.
This information was taken from the official Blizzard patch notes.
I am ultimately thrilled that Sombra is live now and can be played in my Overwatch account. I know every Overwatch player is as well! The hype for her was so long and it amazes me it is not dying down. Players got even more excited that she is now live. This is a happy day for all of us!
