Ashe is the leader of the Deadlock Gang and has a longstanding grudge against McCree, one of the original "Overwatch" heroes. There might have been some unfavorable reactions to Blizzard's unveiling of Diablo: Immortals as a mobile-exclusive title, but there was another highlight that was very welcome, and that was the announcement of six Overwatch LEGO building sets.

Ashe was introduced in the new "Reunion" animated short above.

The latest hero to join the cast of "Overwatch" is Ashe, the leader of the Deadlock Gang.

Diablo Immortal is the mobile Diablo game nobody asked for
Diablo Immortal is being developed by Blizzard in collaboration with NetEase, the studio behind PUBG clone Rules of Survival. Visit vast social hubs like Westmarch and conduct business with local merchants before setting off on your next adventure.

Blizzard did not reveal when Ashe would be dropping, but likely characters arrive within a month or two of when they're revealed. Her newly minted hero page describes her as a legendary outlaw, and as a new DPS hero, she's got abilities to suit her reputation. The gun is capable of quick shots, but does more damage when she aims down the sights. The huge pushback can propel her into the air if shot at the ground and it can also push enemies away too similarly to Brigitte's flail. McCree exchanges some words with a character named Ashe, who was revealed after the short to be the game's newest character, with her Ultimate including her Omnic companion Bob.

Wielding shotguns that doubles as a sniper rifle, the 29th Overwatch hero brings more disruptive DPS action to the field. Like Ashe, Echo has some sort of connection to McCree, so I get the feeling we'll see her again.
