We don’t have any details on how he plays, but apparently he is “unaware he’s been turned into a living weapon”. When I first saw him, I honestly thought Blizzard was adding the iconic Megaman X villain Sigma to the roster – and they look so similar that an homage skin would be trivial to design.

Regardless, we’ll be hearing more about Overwatch’s Sigma in the near future.
