Echo, the 32nd hero to be added to Overwatch, is leaving the Public Test Realm next week for wide release.
Blizzard has announced Echo will join the Overwatch roster next week on April 14.
The new hero Echo falls in the Damage category, and was revealed in a story video back in March as an evolutionary robot “programmed with a rapidly adapting artificial intelligence.”
