The Overwatch roster is getting a new character!

The Overwatch roster gets a new addition and it is the “evolutionary robot programmed with a rapidly adapting artificial intelligence” called Echo. Blizzard Entertainment was able to launch a new trailer introducing this new addition to the game’s roster.

The trailer featured the thoughts of Dr. Mina Liao, the creator of Echo. The doctor had apparently created an advanced robot race called the Omnics who became evil and caused a catastrophe called the Omnic Crisis. Because of the Crisis, Dr. Liao was forced to work with Overwatch to put an end to the problem. The doctor created Echo as a solution.

Echo acknowledges that the Doctor’s intentions are pure but Echo is conflicted as to what her purpose in the world is. A moral dilemma is upon her, but regardless, she does obtain the abilities to save the whole world.



This won’t be the first time that we get to see Echo as she had been featured in an Overwatch short film that was launched by Blizzard previously. Echo had been a mystery until now, and she will be a part of Overwatch roster. She has been confirmed to be a playable character in Overwatch 2. However, the launch date of that game has not been shared yet.

Overwatch is currently available for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
