Overwatch's 29th character and 16th damage hero, is Ashe, the leader of the Deadlock gang and old acquaintance of Jesse McCree. Her semi automatic rifle is called the Viper and players can either use the scope for more accurate shots or without the scope for faster ones. While the Deadlock Gang was bested, Ashe got to show off her abilities in both the cinematic and the gameplay trailer accompanying the video. 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. McCree exchanges some words with a character named Ashe, who was revealed after the short to be the game's newest character, with her Ultimate including her Omnic companion Bob. Ashe's main weapon rewards precise aim, as does her Dynamite ability. You'll have to wait until December to tear into a box of Lucio-Ohs, though, but the part of a complete breakfast will also come with in-game Overwatch loot. Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan briefly discussed Echo at Blizzcon, saying "we need to spend more time before we're ready for Echo".

Ashe, the 29th hero for Overwatch, was revealed at BlizzCon 2018. Blizzard hasn't announced a release date for Ashe yet, but expect her to roll out within the next couple months. With Coach Gun, one of her skills, you can knock back enemies in front of you while also propelling yourself backward - a good way to nudge enemies off cliffs or simply keep melee heroes off of you.
