Overwatch streamer Jeff 'emongg' Anderson got the chance to try out the game's newest hero along with Overwatch Director Jeff Kaplan.

Those lucky few at BlizzCon are getting the chance to try out the newest Overwatch hero, Ashe, before everyone else, so of course, emongg had to try her as well.

Joined by Kaplan, he's defending on Blizzard World as Ashe, against an enemy team that also has the new character.


"We got this, we got this," the streamer told viewers before Kaplan notes the enemy Ashe has used their ultimate, B.O.B.

As the streamer is eliminated, Kaplan, obviously overjoyed with how much fun people are having with the new hero, explains what just happened, "See they Nanoboosted B.O.B., but look at how many kills he got."


So, now we know that you can Nanoboost B.O.B., which makes his description as kind of a "7th hero" for teams even more accurate.

We still don't know when Ashe will be released for everyone not at BlizzCon to try, but looking at when Moira came out after being announced at the convention last year, November 6, we can assume the wait shouldn't be too long.
