Overwatch’s 32nd hero, Echo, will be revealed on TimTheTatman’s Twitch stream tomorrow, Blizzard announced today.

Echo was announced this afternoon via an animated origin short. It’s believed that she’ll be a support hero, but that’s just rumor and speculation at this point.

TimTheTatman will be joined by Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan. The “first look” for Echo will presumably feature Tim playing the character while Kaplan offers commentary and insights into her development.

Echo was originally revealed in last year’s McCree animated short “Reunion,” but she appeared again and was confirmed as a new hero in Overwatch 2’s reveal trailer at BlizzCon this past November.

Echo is an omnic hero, created by Overwatch founding member Mina Liao. The animated short makes it look like Echo took on much of Liao’s personality, mannerisms, and ideals.

TimTheTatman’s livestream takes place tomorrow on his Twitch channel at 12pm CT.
