Blizzard Entertainment showcased a myriad of new characters in its recent cinematic short “Reunion” for Overwatch. To that end, the developer confirmed that the next playable hero would be Ashe, leader of the Deadlock Gang and McCree’s old ally. You can watch her gameplay trailer below, along with a short video on her origins.
Ashe is a DPS hero with a lever-action slug rifle that can fire quickly or aim-down-sights for a more devastating long range shot. She can also pull out a shotgun to knock back foes, or propel herself in the air, allowing for some sweet jump shots. Throwing dynamite is another unique trick, especially since it can be shot out of the air.
It’s Ashe’s ultimate that is perhaps the craziest thing. She summons her burly robotic bodyguard B.O.B. to fight alongside her, wrecking havoc against the enemy. Blizzard has yet to reveal when Ashe will be live on the Public Test Realm servers for PC, but it should be soon. Stay tuned for more information in the meantime.
