Blizzard's Overwatch reveals hero 29, Ashe

New Overwatch Cinematic ‘Reunion’ Spotlights McCree and Reveals New Character

The team behind Overwatch unveiled their newest hero during BlizzCon 2018 and though players instantly fell in love with Ashe, let's be real - it was the mustache'd robot B.O.B that stole the show.

While Echo might not be ready to be officially revealed in-game, she has been confirmed to be Overwatch's thirtieth hero.

The trailer gave us a sneak peek at the Damage hero and her abilities. The dynamite can be thrown and will detonate after a short period or shot to detonate immediately.

Unlike most other characters in Overwatch, it seems like Ashe's primary weapon - a semi-automatic rifle named "The Viper" - can be aimed via iron sights or hip fire.

"Ashe blasts enemies in front of her, knocking them away and propelling herself backward for added mobility".

This is definitely a DPS kit with a high skill ceiling. But be aware that it also pushes you back if you shoot it at an enemy.

The "Reunion" short opened up on McCree eating at a diner with an appropriately Western tune playing in the background before opening up to the wider world of Overwatch to set the stage for the short. Like Ashe, Echo has some sort of connection to McCree, so I get the feeling we'll see her again.

Ashe is 39 years old at the time of her arrival in the universe; she's described as "ambitious and calculating" by Blizzard, having been born into wealth to distracted parents.
