Get in there, Bob! Everyone’s favorite Omnic butler may not be charging toward the payload, but he is charging into your TBR in the newest Overwatch novel! Deadlock Rebels will be hitting shelves this summer, and it tells the story of a young Ashe, Bob and Jesse McCree.
Deadlock Rebels goes back in time to focus on some of the game’s best rebels:
In the years after the Omnic Crisis, the American Southwest is ruled by vultures looking to profit off the chaos. The West is ripe for the taking, and Elizabeth Caledonia Ashe intends to write her name across it.
When Ashe is arrested yet again on the morning of her high school graduation, her aloof, old-money parents decide to disinherit her from the family fortune. To steal back what’s rightfully hers, Ashe teams up with her Omnic butler, B.O.B., and local ruffian Jesse McCree for a series of heists, catapulting the trio into a game of fast money and dangerous alliances. Along the way, Ashe discovers that family isn’t just about blood. It’s about the people who’ve got your back when your back’s against the wall.
Full of high-octane chases and action-packed stand-offs, the second novel for Overwatch explores the founding of the Deadlock Gang and the origins of fan-favorite heroes Ashe and McCree.
Deadlock Rebels will unleash the heist of a lifetime on June 1st, 2021, and preorders are available now. If you’re looking for something to keep you busy until then, Hero of Numbani, a middle-grade novel focused on Efi, Orisa, Doomfist, and Lúcio, is available now!
