Blizzcon 2018: Overwatch Hero 29 Ashe Revealed at Blizzcon 2018

  • The new Overwatch hero is Ashe: here are her abilities

While Kaplan teased that Echo will eventually be a playable hero-perhaps number 30-the biggest reveal of his presentation is that Ashe will be the newest hero joining Overwatch's ever-expanding roster.

Blizzard has unveiled the new hero for its popular hero shooter.

Alongside a character reveal video the official Overwatch Twitter posted: "Introducing Ashe-leader of the Deadlock Gang and rebellious gunslinger who's not afraid to get her hands dirty".

Ashe is the leader of the Deadlock Gang.

In addition to the levitating Snowball and the Genji Sword, Overwatch's heroes and environments have been adapted into LEGO form. Ashe's main weapon rewards precise aim, as does her Dynamite ability.


Dynamite: Ashe throws an explosive that detonates after a short delay or immediately when shot.

We still don't know when Ashe will be released for everyone not at BlizzCon to try, but looking at when Moira came out after being announced at the convention a year ago, November 6, we can assume the wait shouldn't be too long.

In celebration of BlizzCon, the Overwatch team released a brand new short centering around everyone's favorite anachronistic cyborg cowboy, Jesse McCree.

Her coach gun is her shotgun. Upon using hers, Ashe summons "B.O.B.", a robot sidekick who charges into enemies, knocks them into the air, and then "lays down suppressing fire" with his built-in arm cannons.
