It has been a while since we have had a good update for Overwatch over here, and now we are glad to offer up that we are getting a new character in the mix of it all. All of which based on the latest trailer that Blizzard has put out there and not in terms of actual gameplay. I have a feeling that will come along at some point. For now, we have a nice new look at a character called Echo that should be gracing Overwatch on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One along the way. When? Well, we will leave that question for a different time as we just have the origin story to take in right now. At least, as of the original writing of this article and update.
As you will see below, Echo looks to be a robot of sorts that is housing the mind or consciousness of their creator. That was my takeaway on it all here. What Echo will add into the world of Overwatch, well, that is still to be determined as all we have is a solid look. If we were to speculate on that, it could be something along the lines of another healer or buff character for Overwatch. Just based on the color and "wings" that we see Echo sporting here. We could be way off, as this is speculation on something that is not even gameplay at this point. I am certain that all of those in the future will be looking back and calling us wrong on it here, but it is what it is. Have a look at Echo just below.
Overwatch — Echo
Introducing Echo. An evolutionary robot programmed with a rapidly adapting artificial intelligence, Echo represents the cutting edge of technology.
Are you glad to see another character heading into Overwatch or did you think that we would get no new ones until after the second game drops? Do you think that we are correct in our assessment or do you know better than us now? Could we see more characters coming for this version of the game in the future or will that cycle end as the new game begins? Let us all know down in the comments and then feel free to discuss. If we have more to update for Overwatch and the franchise in general, we will do so here. Just be sure to keep checking in for all of that and much more.
