Overwatch Reveals Their New Hero, Sigma

Overwatch has released a new trailer which showcases the origin story of the newest Overwatch Hero, Sigma.

Sigma is an astrophysicist who tried to harness the powers of a black hole in an attempt to better understand the universe. However, things didn’t go as he planned which led to him being turned into a living weapon.

From the trailer, we can see him go insane with maybe even multiple personalities or his own self from the future or past that’s trapped in his body. The trailer has a very creepy and an overall tragic feeling to it, especially so with the music that adds to his insanity.

While we don’t know what his abilities are, we can safely assume that he will be some sort of anti-gravity powers. This is the 5th scientist in Overwatch and his origin story trailer is fantastically made.

Overwatch Adds New Hero- Ashe

Ashe, the new ‘Damage’ type Overwatch hero is now playable. Here are her details and story.

Ashe quickly fires her rifle from the hip or uses her weapon’s aim-down sights to line up a high damage shot. She blasts enemies by throwing dynamite, and her coach gun packs enough punch to put some distance between her and her foes. And Ashe is not alone, as she can call on her omnic ally B.O.B., to join the fray when the need arises.

THE VIPER

Ashe’s semi-automatic rifle fires quick shots, or she can use her aim-down sights for a more damaging, precise shot.

DYNAMITE

Ashe throws an explosive that detonates after a short delay or immediately when shot. The explosion from Dynamite also lights enemies on fire, dealing damage over time.

COACH GUN

Ashe blasts enemies in front of her, knocking them away and propelling herself backward for added mobility.

B.O.B.

Ashe summons her trusted omnic sidekick, B.O.B., who charges forward and knocks enemies into the air, then lays down suppressing fire with his arm cannons.

Here is Ashe’s Origin Story-

Ashe is the ambitious and calculating leader of the Deadlock Gang and a respected figure in the criminal underworld.

Born into a wealthy family, Ashe grew up surrounded by privilege. Her parents were highly sought-after business consultants and coaches for powerful CEOs around the world. Though her parents paid little attention to her (mostly leaving her in the care of the family’s omnic butler, Bob), they ensured that Ashe had every opportunity to succeed. But a chance meeting with a local ruffian, named Jesse McCree, and an impromptu string of crimes committed together opened her eyes to her true calling. The satisfaction of outwitting her targets and the thrill of getting away with it set her on the outlaw path.

Along with the other three founders of the Deadlock Gang, Ashe started to make a name for herself with bigger and more extravagant heists. The Deadlock Gang’s rapid rise to prominence put them at odds with the other criminal organizations in the American Southwest; the encounters often became violent. After years of skirmishes and bloodshed, Ashe called the heads of the major groups together.

Ashe saw the potential to grow the influence of all. She used what she’d learned from her parents’ business to bring order to these groups. Her proposal was that the gangs could work together (or at least, not work against each other). Her principles: keep your word, don’t work with the law, respect each other’s territory, and always punish betrayal.

No longer having to focus her energies on squabbles with the other gangs, Ashe is now writing her name across the American Southwest with a string of audacious heists and operations that has put her at top of the authorities’ most-wanted lists and cemented her legacy as an outlaw legend.

Overwatch’s Pink Mercy Skin Helps Break Breast Cancer Donation Record

Back in the month of May Blizzard had announced a new skin for their character from Overwatch which they call the “Pink Mercy” skin. While almost all skins in-game come from loot boxes or by using in-game money to purchase it, this skin was a direct purchase for $14.99. The good thing about this was that 100% of the funds from the purchase would go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. In their news post, Blizzard states that they raised more than $12.7 Million (USD) just from skin purchases and T-shirt purchases.

In addition to that, another $130,000 USD was raised through donations on Twitch. Blizzard goes on to state that this was the largest donation by a corporate partner within one year in BCRF’s 25-year history. It’s always good to see gamers and the gaming community coming together for a good cause and it’s also good to see that it isn’t going to a shady organisation. Thanks to all the people who supported this cause as this could help find a cure for Breast Cancer and maybe, this could be the start of something positive where-in more companies could do similar things to help other causes as well.
