But before we get to that, why don't you check out the action-packed new Western-themed Overwatch animated short featuring everybody's favorite one-armed cowboy, McCree?

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

The latest Overwatch short debuted today during BlizzCon 2018, revolving around popular character McCree, and one new face was revealed during the short: Hero 29, Ashe.

Blizzard revealed Ashe at BlizzCon on Friday, a shotgun-toting, dynamite-tossing, rifle-shooting outlaw who used to be friends with McCree.

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

She's the leader of the Deadlock Gang, a group of rowdy desert dwellers who pull off huge heists. Blizzard hasn't announced a release date for Ashe yet, but expect her to roll out within the next couple months.

When she needs to, Ashe can call on B.O.B, an adorable mustachioed robot sidekick.

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. It deals fire damage that hurts enemies over time. Echo, a robotic member of Overwatch that had been "turned-off" for quite some time, was locked inside the mysterious container McCree and Ashe were fighting over. When using her ult, B.O.B will jump in front of Ashe and run forward; he will knock up the first targets he runs into then stop to shoot.
