As expected, Kaplan and the Overwatch team unveiled a new cinematic at the fan convention.

Alongside a character reveal video the official Overwatch Twitter posted: "Introducing Ashe-leader of the Deadlock Gang and rebellious gunslinger who's not afraid to get her hands dirty". While she sports a similar western look to her high-noonin' frenemy, some concept art and skin designs revealed at a panel discussing what's next for Overwatch show some different sides of the outlaw.

But instead it was revealed to be Ashe, the leader of the Deadlock Gang.

Ashe features in the Reunion short, and a page on the official Overwatch website gives more details about the latest hero. Ashe's main weapon rewards precise aim, as does her Dynamite ability. She can call down a giant robot named B.O.B whenever she's ready to use her ultimate. Unlike those two, though, Ashe seems to retain much more of her situational awareness and mobility while aiming. 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.

The makers of everyone's favorite building blocks have taken their skills to mad new heights, unveiling a life-size LEGO version of Overwatch's iconic mech pilot D.Va for BlizzCon 2018. She also has a "Coach Gun", which lets her essentially rocket jump or merely propel enemies backward a few feet.
