Blizzard's Overwatch reveals hero 29, Ashe

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

Blizzard unveiled the next Overwatch hero during Blizzcon today: Elizabeth Caledonia "Calamity" Ashe, better known as Ashe.

Roughly four months after the release of the popular multiplayer shooter's last hero, Hammond (an intelligent hamster in a giant ball mech), Blizzard is already teasing Overwatch's next hero: Ashe, the "rebellious" female leader of the fictional "Deadlock Gang".

The trailer gave us a sneak peek at the Damage hero and her abilities.

Ashe's main weapon is The Viper, a semi-automatic rifle that can be fired quickly from the hip or down sights for more powerful and accurate shots.

Her impressive-looking rifle aside, Ashe also has access to a throwable stick of dynamite, which can be detonated manually by being shot or automatically after a short delay. Then there's the coach gun, a sawed-off shotgun that knocks Ashe and her targets backward.




You can find images of the sniper, the triplets, Echo, and Bob (who appears in-game as part of Ashe's ultimate ability) below.

This is definitely a DPS kit with a high skill ceiling.

If you are at BlizzCon or have access to the virtual ticket, you can buy Ashe merch on the Blizzard store right now.

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.
