[3/19 Update: Echo’s Abilities Have Been Revealed and She is Now Live on PTR]

Blizzard Entertainment has announced that Overwatch Game Director Jeff Kaplan and popular streamer TimTheTatman will showcase Echo’s first gameplay on March 19 after announcing Hero 32 this morning. First announced on Twitter, the stream will start at 10am PT tomorrow on Tim’s Twitch channel ( This “first look” should feature Echo’s abilities, in-game look, and various other aspects of the hero as Kaplan and the streamer converse.
