[dropcap]B[/dropcap]lizzard Entertainment has finally revealed Overwatch’s newest hero to be added to the game in a rather interesting way. For several months, Blizzard has been teasing at Sombra via an alternate reality game: that is, an interactive networked narrative that uses the real world as a platform. Several hard to crack codes have been given, teasing those who finally figured them out with more puzzles to solve.
On Saturday, during BlizzCon 2016’s opening ceremony, Blizzard showed a video looking back on the launch of Overwatch… Only to have the video begin to glitch out midway through, revealing Sombra’s insignia and then playing the new animated short “Infiltration”.
Sombra will be available on Overwatch’s public test realm this coming week, with a full release soon to follow.
