New short story – “Deadlock Rebels”
Explore the origins of the Deadlock Gang in the new short story, written by Lyndsay Ely. With breathtaking hunts and action-packed duels, you get to see the background of Ashe and McCree.
In the years after the Omnick crisis, the southwestern United States was ruled by those who tried to mint the chaos. The West is full of possibilities and Elizabeth Caledonia Ashe intends to write her name across it.
Ashe was arrested (again!) On the day of her graduation. Usually lost in life, just denied a will from her old rich parents, she has been given a very clear goal – to steal what really belongs to her. Ashe merges with his omnicbutler, BOB, and a local thug named Jesse McCree. Together, they make various shocks and throw the trio into a game with fast money and dangerous alliances. Along the way, Ashe discovers that family is not just about blood. It’s about who is there when you need them.
From this week you will be able to play Overwatch with friends across all platforms. If you play on console, you need to connect to a Battle.net account. Crossplay will be automatically available for PC players. Group up with players on all platforms for matches in Quick Play, Arcade and Custom matches. Console players have a common lobby for ranked matches. PC players continue as usual, with only PC players in their lobby.
