Overwatch screenshot of McCree and Echo from the Reunion cinematic short

[Update]: Overwatch's final hero Echo has now been released for both casual and competitive play.

Blizzcon 2018 has now rolled around, and as expected, the Overwatch team has come out with some major announcements. First and foremost, the brand new hero has been revealed as Ashe - the leader of the Deadlock Gang and a damn impressive gunslinger.

The second (and unfortunately final) major reveal was for a brand new cinematic short. I won't go into too many details in order to avoid spoiling your fun, but expect to see some badass action scenes with McCree, the brand new hero, as well as a rather interesting plot hook for the future. Have a look, it's well worth a watch:

Not a lot of emotional moments in this one compared to the past couple of cinematic shorts, but I do feel it's still worthy of a high rating given the excellent cinematography, pacing and top notch delivery from McCree. Though to be perfectly honest, the thing that captured my imagination the most was the 'real' reunion with Echo as it brings up so many interesting questions... questions we're probably not going to get answered for at least a couple of months. Still, as far as building up McCree's character and the Overwatch lore as a whole, I have to say that Reunion has been a complete success in my book!

If Blizzard ends up releasing any more information during the various Overwatch panels, I'll make sure to let you know, but until then I'll leave you with this little piece of information: Ashe will likely be hitting the PTR this Monday!
