During BlizzCon this evening Blizzard has revealed the 29th playable hero for Overwatch, and she goes by the name Ashe. She's the "leader of the Deadlock Gang and rebellious gunslinger who's not afraid to get her hands dirty" and uses Bob as her Ultimate move. Take a look at Ashe in the video and new cinematic, titled Reunion, below, along with her special abilities.


THE VIPER - Ashe's semi-automatic rifle fires quick shots, or she can use her aim-down sights for a more damaging, precise shot.

DYNAMITE - Ashe throws an explosive that detonates after a short delay or immediately when shot. The explosion from Dynamite also lights enemies on fire, dealing damage over time.

COACH GUN - Ashe blasts enemies in front of her, knocking them away and propelling herself backward for added mobility.


B.O.B. - Ashe summons her trusted omnic sidekick, B.O.B., who charges forward and knocks enemies into the air, then lays down suppressing fire with his arm cannons.

Ashe is going to be playable at BlizzCon so expect to hear more about her soon, while PC players can probably expect to see the new hero on the PTR in near future.
