Overwatch: Ashe’s Origin Story Reveals A Ruthless Renegade (VIDEO)


BlizzCon 2018 revealed plenty of awesome new content coming to Blizzard’s major titles and Overwatch was no exception. Introducing Ashe, a member of the Deadlock gang, fans got a chance to see McCree through new eyes. While some fans consider her a ‘female McCree,’ a new origin story trailer reveals she’s anything but. See for yourself in the video below:

Ashe brings a calculated, ruthless edge to the world of Overwatch. Highly respected in the criminal underworld, she’s definitely her own character. Of course, the secret ingredient to her life wasn’t always crime. According to Blizzard, she led a much different life before then:

Born into a wealthy family, Ashe grew up surrounded by privilege. Her parents were highly sought-after business consultants and coaches for powerful CEOs around the world. Though her parents paid little attention to her (mostly leaving her in the care of the family’s omnic butler, Bob), they ensured that Ashe had every opportunity to succeed. But a chance meeting with a local ruffian, named Jesse McCree, and an impromptu string of crimes committed together opened her eyes to her true calling. The satisfaction of outwitting her targets and the thrill of getting away with it set her on the outlaw path.”

This new Overwatch hero showed off some of her moves in a McCree Reunion video, and fans are now getting a chance to see that Ashe is more than just guns-a-blazin’. The character brings intellect and a merciless attitude to the fray like no other. Her strict code has earned her quite the name among gangs and even in America:

Ashe saw the potential to grow the influence of all. She used what she’d learned from her parents’ business to bring order to these groups. Her proposal was that the gangs could work together (or at least, not work against each other). Her principles: keep your word, don’t work with the law, respect each other’s territory, and always punish betrayal. No longer having to focus her energies on squabbles with the other gangs, Ashe is now writing her name across the American Southwest with a string of audacious heists and operations that has put her at top of the authorities’ most-wanted lists and cemented her legacy as an outlaw legend.”

For those interested in checking Ashe out, they can do so on the Overwatch PTR servers now! Overwatch is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
