Today, Blizzard posted a trailer officially introducing Echo, who is an "evolutionary robot programmed with a rapidly adapting artificial intelligence". Check out Echo's origin story short below. The latter is a little different from Mercy's glide mechanic, according to Kaplan, as Echo falls faster but can move more quickly horizontally.
As we saw in the "Zero Hour" cinematic, Echo can fly and shoots powerful blue lasers from her hands.
Overwatch Hero 32: Who is Echo?
As Blizzard tweeted, Echo represents the "cutting edge of technology" and was created by Dr Mina Liao, one of the six founding members of the worldwide task force Overwatch, and also the one responsible for building the omnic robots. Her second ability is her Sticky Bombs, which are a small group of explosive bombs that attach to the first thing they hit (including players) and explode for high damage.
How do you think will Echo fit into your Overwatch squad? Echo is a DPS that is very fast and strong at breaking down shields. And while we can't be sure, it does seem like Dr. Liao is no longer alive.
The Overwatch team has been working diligently as they are working on Overwatch 2, plus new features to the game such as the Experimental card and hero pools. This was Echo. Her echo. Echo's Ultimate, though, is where the real fun begins. Fans do tend to fixate on the former category, since it gives them something to speculate about. However, it was originally thought she would be named Athena. That's a helluva lot of recordings and pronunciations to get right, huh? We still don't know much about Overwatch 2 but will update our readers once we have more information. "If Overwatch would have released with a 3,2,1 system, everyone would probably be fine with it, but since we didn't, players got used to something and don't want to see it be changed", Jeff added.
