Introducing Sigma, a volatile tank with the power to control gravity
What happens when a brilliant astrophysicist gains the power to control gravity in an orbital experiment gone wrong? You get Overwatch’s thirty-first hero, Sigma. Dr. Siebren de Kuiper’s life changed forever after he attempted to harness the power of gravity, ultimately turning himself into a puppet that is manipulated by the international crime organization, Talon. Outside of his troubling back story, Sigma’s in-game abilities make him a force to be reckoned with. Propelling floating barriers and launching gravitic charges are just some of the ways he helps push his team to victory.
Overwatch Role Queue lets players choose their role and group up to bring their team to victory
The matchmaking and queuing systems are getting an update with the latest feature addition, Role Queue. This new system is designed to help ensure Overwatch matches continue to be fair and fun well into the future while creating an environment that promotes teamwork.
Competitive and Quick Play players will have the ability to choose which role they want to play—tank, support, or damage—before a match even begins. The system will then match two tanks, two supports, and two damage heroes to create a team, and upon entering a match, players will select heroes within their chosen roles. At the end of a match, players will return to the main menu and select their role before queuing for the next game.
The beta season will run from now to September 1, so you can test the system while still earning competitive points.
