During Blizzcon, Blizzard announced the latest character to join the already-packed ensemble of characters to play as; this time around players are introduced to the leader of the Deadlock Gang — Ashe.
The introduction to the new character comes from the new animated Overwatch short “Reunion”. I said it once, and I’ll say it a thousand more times, someone needs to make an animated tv series of Overwatch because this is just too good. The Reunion short focuses around Jessi McCree and his long-entangled past with Ashe.
The short is super fun to watch and concerningly too good. The animation is on point, the story is told well within a short time-frame, and the tie-ins into the game are incredible. If your an Overwatch fan or a newcomer altogether, make sure to check out the new short down below:
Blizzard didn’t just stop there though, now with the proper introduction in place for Ashe, the developer released a new video showcasing her in action. It seems she will be a damage-dealing hero that could both do damage up close and from far away.
Check out Ashe in action down below:
No expected release date for Ashe has yet been detailed, however, stay tuned to Gameranx as we will update as soon as we hear any more details on the new character.
