By Zoe Delahunty-Light Hold onto your horses because images of Sombra, the newest hero to be added to Overwatch, have been leaked online via Twitter.
So, who is Sombra?
She’s a hacker who used to work with Reaper in the shadowy Talon organisation, so for a start she’s got some kind of metal grafted onto the side of her head, which could be the augmentations she ‘upgraded’ as described in the bio below her image.
Above her portrait is the telling phrase ‘she will be hacking her way into the build later tonight’, so she could make a surprise appearance in-game to help out with the leaked new Halloween-themed game mode, to ‘protect the castle doors from Zomnics and Dr Junkenstein’s evil allies.’ Zomnics sound like they’ll be zombie Omnics, saved from the scrapile by Dr Junkenstein and now being hurled at the doors of a spooky castle map probably found in the Halloween loot box.
If the woman with a sleek armoured - possibly robotic - arm isn’t her, it could be her mother, whose high-tech limb might explain Sombra’s familiarity with technology.
