It has been previously reported that Blizzard might have a new Overwatch hero in the works. Given that the company has been slowly expanding the roster of heroes in the game, this news did not come as a surprise. In fact at BlizzCon 2018, Blizzard took the wraps off the new hero in the form of Ashe.
According to Ashe’s official Overwatch page, “Ashe quickly fires her rifle from the hip or uses her weapon’s aim-down sights to line up a high damage shot. She blasts enemies by throwing dynamite, and her coach gun packs enough punch to put some distance between her and her foes. And Ashe is not alone, as she can call on her omnic ally B.O.B., to join the fray when the need arises.”
If you’re wondering why Ashe looks familiar, it is because she and other Overwatch hero McCree seem to have shared a past together. It is unclear when Ashe will be officially put into the game, but given previous releases, we expect that Ashe should find her way onto the PTR soon enough, with an official release probably not too long after. In the meantime you can check out Ashe’s origin story in the video above, and take a look at her gameplay in the video below.
