Ashe is the leader of the Deadlock Gang.

While Kaplan teased that Echo will eventually be a playable hero-perhaps number 30-the biggest reveal of his presentation is that Ashe will be the newest hero joining Overwatch's ever-expanding roster.

Overwatch's 29th character and 16th damage hero, is Ashe, the leader of the Deadlock gang and old acquaintance of Jesse McCree.

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

Hillary Clinton on possible run in 2020: 'I'd like to be president'
Perino added that each time Clinton waffles on a presidential bid, it "prevents someone from being able to emerge". It shows Clinton getting interviewed on Friday on a stage in NY , by Kara Swisher of the tech news site Recode .


Blizzard showed a new Overwatch animated short at BlizzCon 2018 called Reunion starring McCree.

The cinematic begins in the diner where an unexpected train robbery occurs.

"She blasts enemies by throwing dynamite, and her coach gun packs enough punch to put some distance between her and her foes". 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. Just as interestingly, it sounds like Ashe is voiced by Jennifer Hale, who in 2013 was awarded the Guinness world record for "most prolific female video game voice actor" for her work in games like Metal Gear Solid, Mass Effect and plenty of others.

Ashe is Overwatch's hero 29th. The vast 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. She was first shown in a fun cinematic taking place at Route 66, where we also met her partner and ultimate ability Bob.
