Overwatch's Next Hero Is Ashe, Leader of the Deadlock Gang

Overwatch's Next Hero Is Ashe, Leader of the Deadlock Gang

Introducing Ashe-leader of the Deadlock Gang and rebellious gunslinger who's not afraid to get her hands dirty.

In true Blizzard fashion, Miss Elizabeth Caledonia Ashe premiered in an all-new cinematic trailer called "Reunion" that follows the suave cowboy McCree.

At BlizzCon today, Blizzard announced Overwatch's latest hero, Ashe, a stern and strict gang leader who looks absolutely killer. In Overwatch, the essential part of Lucio's character is that his music has literal healing properties, and the news story mostly provides a story explanation for them.

It had been rumoured that the new Overwatch character - hero 29 - was going to be the Junker Queen.

The Overwatch Twitter tweeted the short alongside the message: "An explosive train robbery gives McCree the chance to settle some unfinished business with a few former associates".

A lot of announcements have come out of Blizzcon 2018 so far, but the funnest and most weird might be the announcement of a cereal based on a joke from Overwatch. When it detonates, it lights enemies on fire and deals damage over a period of time. Ashe's main weapon rewards precise aim, as does her Dynamite ability. Not only can she hurl dynamite at her enemies and punch McCree square in his handsome face, but for her ultimate ability she can summon Bob to wreak havoc on her enemies.
