Overwatch Adds New Hero Echo


Yesterday, Blizzard unveiled the next character coming to Overwatch: An advanced Omnic named Echo who was created by Dr. Mina Liao, the long-unrevealed sixth founding member of the online supergroup. Today, Echo became playable on the Overwatch PTR, and Blizzard revealed more about her history (Blizzard refers to Echo as "her") and what she brings to the fight.

"Echo is a really special character for us in that our players have known about her for a very long time," game director Jeff Kaplan said. Echo was seen and named in the big Overwatch 2 cinematic released last year, but Kaplan pointed out that she actually appeared long before that: "Players had actually seen Echo in earlier versions of the artwork for Overwatch. She was featured in the Reunion cinematic, where McCree frees her from the Deadlock Gang."

I'm sure the game still has its audience but it seems like it fell out of the collective gaming consciousness a while back. I did my best to like it. I enjoyed the general vibe of the tech and world but the general story vibe seemed super generic and PC and none of the characters really appealed to me and their take on the class based gameplay just didn't feel right to me. I mostly played Mercy and Soldier 76 and when they made Soldier 76 gay, I had to roll my eyes. I was already done playing by then anyway but it didn't stop it from being funny and stupid to me.

This game has only gotten better with age and, unlike pretty much every other game that has come along during the same timeframe, I'm still playing regularly. Looking forward to the new hero.

Reminds me a bit of Marvel's Snowflake. Or, to be more precise, looks like shit.
