Blizzard (finally) formally declared Overwatch's latest idol, Sombra, at BlizzCon 2016 nowadays, exposing her capabilities and her source tale as an orphaned sufferer of the Omnic Problems turned cybernetically-enhanced cyberpunk. During a board at BlizzCon, Overwatch's innovative brings stepped BlizzCon participants through Sombra's style, exposing her very first ideas and the different themes gamers will be able to open up.
While Sombra is the game's latest idol, she's been in development in various types for a long time, Blizzard said. In her very first version, she was a rapid, ninja-like personality who used projectiles. Some of her capabilities were gradually weaved into other Overwatch idol, Genji, who himself was initially a more slowly, one-hit destroy turn unseen personality, and Hanzo.
Those beginning editions of Sombra were gradually set aside, and Blizzard later revisited her as a cyberpunk who could affect opponent capabilities, briefly turn unseen, see low-health opponents through surfaces and teleport using a throwable device. A first style for Sombra also had her dressed in a bonnet, one that seemed a little too close to Overwatch's first post-release personality, Ana. Sombra's idea art once provided as an earlier teaser; her hooded figure showed up in magazines spread throughout Overwatch's Dorado level.
