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

It had been rumoured that the new Overwatch character - hero 29 - was going to be the Junker Queen. Ashe, the leader of an outlaw group called "Deadlock Gang", comes from an extremely wealthy family who provided her with privilege throughout her life, though her parents were kept busy by their careers as business coaches and could spare little attention for their child.

BlizzCon 2018 kicks off today, and, of course, the show's opening ceremonies have been packed with new content announcements, including the reveal of the 29th Overwatch Hero.

The cinematic begins in the diner where an unexpected train robbery occurs. Blizzard hasn't announced a release date for Ashe yet, but expect her to roll out within the next couple months. You can also use aim-down sights to deal additional damage with more precision.

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

At the "Overwatch: What's Next" panel, game developers said Bob was almost a hero unto himself and joked that Ashe is hero 29, but Bob is hero 29.5. She uses dynamite, a semi-automatic rifle named Viper and a blast back gun that can propel her into the air. In addition to her main firearm, Ashe also has access to a stick of dynamite and a small shotgun that can cause massive pushback to both herself and her enemies.

Ashe's ultimate ability summons Bob, her robot that'll rush toward enemies knocking them skyward while shooting his weapons.
