Overwatch close up screenshot of Ashe

Unlike some of the previous heroes that have taken an eternity in order to hit the live servers, it would appear that Overwatch's 29th hero Ashe will have a significantly faster journey. She became available on the PTR a mere few days following her big Blizzcon 2018 reveal, and now that the PTR has concluded after only 7 days of testing, it's expected that Ashe will arrive to both PC and console later today (November 13th).

Naturally, none of this has been officially confirmed just yet, but pretty much all of the telltale signs are there: Overwatch is currently pre-loading a brand new update, Tuesday is when Blizzard usually patches their games, the PTR version of Ashe didn't have any noticeable bugs, and perhaps most importantly, the last few heroes were released in a similar fashion. So while I would still recommend being cautiously optimistic, I think it's fairly safe to say that Ashe will be making her debut today.

If you haven't given Ashe a try and you don't have any idea what she actually does, allow me to share with you one of her gameplay trailers. It'll tell you everything you need to know about her abilities, as well as what sort of playstyle you can expect to see her embody. Have a gander:

Once more information becomes available, or if Ashe simply pops up on the live servers, I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, I'll just leave you with the announcement that Overwatch will soon be getting a massive performance update!
