Blizzard Entertainment finally introduced us to Overwatch’s new hero, Sombra, during BlizzCon 2016’s opening ceremonies after months of teases. The offense-heavy hacker has abilities that range from deadly to deceptive, which the Overwatch website teases in a series of short clips.
There’s "Machine Pistol," which sees Sombra shooting away at enemies from a close distance:
"Hack" is what it sounds like — Sombra infiltrates her opponents to stop them dead in their tracks. She can also render restorative items useless:
"Thermoptic Camo" makes the stealthy hero both fast and invisible, and she’ll remain so until she uses another ability or takes damage:
"Translocator" is akin to teleporation, with Sombra throwing out a special device into the field that she can then return to instantaneously:
"EMP," which is presumably Sombra’s ultimate ability, uses electromagnetic energy to disarm defending foes. It’s basically like a super-hack:
To see even more of Sombra, watch her animated reveal trailer below. She’ll be playable on the Public Test Realm next week for players on Windows PC.

Update 2: As of Nov. 7, Sombra is now playable on the public test realm for PC players. Go try out her moveset for yourself!
