Today at BlizzCon, Overwatch debuted its 29th hero inside game’s ever-expanding roster: Ashe, female outlaw, and leader of the Deadlock Gang. Elizabeth Caledonia “Calamity” Ashe, being exact. As a result, she’s a well used acquaintance of McCree’s. The Bonnie to his Clyde, actually, from precisely what the story within her bio suggests. Ashe came to be right life span of privilege, but after being uninterested in it, she used her business savvy to unite all of the gangs from the Southwest and be a legend among outlaws. Involves comes with a trio of the latest videos, starting with one below giving us Ashe’s origin.
Our next clip serves as a general overview of Ashe and her skills. Her main weapon associated with preference is The Viper, a semi-automatic rifle with sniping capabilities. Then there’s dynamite, which…well, is pretty self-explanatory, but in addition induces fire damage. Ashe has the benefit of a second gun, a coach gun that blows enemies away Lucio-style, which can also propel players in a manner akin to rocket jumps. Last but not least, there’s Ashe’s Ultimate. Inside a new twist for Overwatch, this Ultimate summons a uniquely new character. And the would be B.O.B. (no relation), Ashe’s hulking robot butler, who wields arm cannons and expenses into enemies, and comes using a bowler hat and mustache. It took the world wide web roughly thirty-seven seconds to just fall in love and demand him as a playable character. Perhaps he will have Ashe as his Ultimate?
Ashe’s introduction didn’t accompany just that lone clip, though. No, all of us received a new animated short, “Reunion,” concentrating on McCree and her. Taking place throughout a heist that finally reveals what actually transpired on the way 66 stage, McCree dukes versus eachother with Ashe and also the Deadlock Gang, planning to retrieve an important package. But in a twist, this package reveals a mysterious robot generally known as Echo, which McCree says Overwatch needs. A tease for all our 30th hero or over detailed lore, perhaps? Not sure on exactly when Ashe could make her debut, but expect it soon. And here’s wishing for more amazing characters along side same lines as Overwatch keeps going.
