For Overwatch fans, Blizzard has delivered a new reason to get excited with the announcement of a brand new hero. The new Overwatch hero is Hammond, a hamster that pilots a mech. It seems Sombra is also set for big changes in the future too, if what lead designer Geoff Goodman recently revealed comes to pass. The new Sombra changes include giving her the ability to destroy her own Translocator from a distance, and also allows her to stay in stealth mode for an unlimited amount of time as long as she doesn't attack or get hit.
