Both Sigma (The 31st hero to join the Overwatch line up) and Role Queue are now live. Harness the power of gravity and use it against your enemies as Sigma in Quick Play, or hit the Competitive Play Role Queue Beta Season (allowing time for additional testing and feedback) to select your preferred role before the match begins.
Role Queue will be fully available for Quick Play in the first week of September alongside Sigma’s debut in Competitive Season 18.
Who is Sigma?
Sigma is an eccentric astrophysicist who gained the power to control gravity in an orbital experiment gone wrong. Manipulated by Talon and deployed as a living weapon, Sigma’s presence on the battlefield cannot be ignored. Visit his hero page for a closer look.
How Role Queue Works
Role Queue, will be a major change to the matchmaking and queuing systems in both Competitive Play and Quick Play.
Players choose which role they want to play—tank, support, or damage—before a match even begins. The matchmaking system will then match two tanks, two supports, and two damage heroes to create a team, and upon entering match, players will select heroes within their chosen roles.
At the end of a match players will return to the main menu and select their role before queuing for the next game. Be sure to check out more about Role Queue from this link.
