Overwatch Blizzcon 2018: New hero Ashe and McCree 'Reunion’ short REVEALED

BlizzCon 2018’s Opening Ceremony: Watch Live, All the News

After the cinematic ended, Jeff Kaplan alluded Echo as a possible new character in the future but in the end, it was the white-haired outlaw Ashe that got the honors.

Ashe is the leader of the Deadlock Gang.

Ashe was introduced Friday at Blizzcon in an animated short called Reunion, in which we met McCree's old friends, the Deadlock gang.

More details about Ashe, the new Overwatch Hero character has been revealed, including her abilities.

As the streamer is eliminated, Kaplan, obviously overjoyed with how much fun people are having with the new hero, explains what just happened, "See they Nanoboosted B.O.B., but look at how many kills he got".

NASA's Kepler mission has come to an end
Though Kepler was certainly technologically advanced for its time, it hunted planets in a surprisingly straightforward manner. Kepler far outperformed expectations and was viewed with pride by those who spoke about the close of its mission.

It had been rumoured that the new Overwatch character - hero 29 - was going to be the Junker Queen.

Ashe's main weapon is The Viper, a semi-automatic rifle that can be fired quickly from the hip or down sights for more powerful and accurate shots.

"And Ashe is not alone, as she can call on her omnic ally B.O.B., to join the fray when the need arises". She can also throw sticks of dynamite that detonate when shot (or after a short delay) and light enemies on fire dealing damage over time.

You can find images of the sniper, the triplets, Echo, and Bob (who appears in-game as part of Ashe's ultimate ability) below.
