At BlizzCon 2018 today, Lego announced six Overwatch building sets will hit shelves with the new year, and are available for pre-order right now. All together, the six sets add figures of Overwatch characters Tracer, Widowmaker, Hanzo, Genji, Soldier: 76, McCree, D.Va, Reinhardt, Pharah, Mercy, Reaper, and Winston to Lego's expanding line-up of block people. Ashe's gang, including omnic sidekick and muscle B.O.B, are interesting new figures in the lore, so it should be welcomed news that their leader will be joining the ranks.

The Overwatch roster is set to get just that little bit bigger with the reveal of a new character for the popular hero shooter.

The second character revealed was not given a gameplay trailer, nor did she show off any combat abilities in the cinematic.

Overwatch streamer Jeff 'emongg' Anderson got the chance to try out the game's newest hero along with Overwatch Director Jeff Kaplan. While Echo might not be ready to be officially revealed in-game, she has been confirmed to be Overwatch's thirtieth hero.

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.

"She blasts enemies by throwing dynamite, and her coach gun packs enough punch to put some distance between her and her foes".

Dynamite explodes in an area after a short delay, dealing damage over time.
