New Overwatch Animated Short: Infiltration

Video Credit: PlayOverwatch Youtube Channel

About 1 week ago, the Overwatch team announced that they would be releasing a new hero soon, called Sombra. Sombra is a technological wiz, and most of her abilites revolve around the technology she has. She is able to hack into enemies, turrets, and health packs with her abilities.

Along with the announcement on their Youtube channel, the community also received a much anticipated animated short. The clip features the newest hero, Sombra, hacking into Voskaya Industries to help Widowmaker and Reaper assassinate CEO, Katya Volskaya. Just as Widowmaker was about to pull the trigger, an alarm is set off. It is revealed that Sombra was the one that who set off the alarm to get into Volskaya’s office to confront her. There she shows Volskaya some images of her receiving help from the omnics to help Russia survive the Second Omnic War. This would undermine Voskaya’s position as the “Defender Against the Omnics” and crush her reputation as a Russian leader. As a result, Volskaya agrees to help Sombra out once in a while in return for the images not being leaked. Sombra teleports out of the room shortly and Widowmaker, Reaper, and Sombra return to their ship.
