He's finally here, ladies and gentlemen. The one and only Doomfist has finally arrived with a bang on the Public Test Realm servers for Overwatch, and he's just as imposing and fun to play as you'd imagine. The hero was teased yesterday with an enigmatic tweet from Blizzard, but now we can get to see him in action.
Doomfist, in the game's lore, is a Nigerian called Akande Ogundimu with strong connections to the Talon criminal organization. After escaping from Helix custody, he made his way to Numbani in Africa and stole the Doomfist gauntlet after destroying multiple OR-15 robots at the city airport. He now appears in-game as an Offense hero wielding the gauntlet.
His abilities include an uppercut ability which allows him to knock an opponent into the air, a charge attack, a passive ability which gives him shields when attacking, a ground slam, knuckle blasters, and his ultimate, Meteor Strike, which makes him rise into the air to land on an opponent, dealing massive damage to anyone he hits and knocking everyone else back.
What do you think of this brand new hero? Let us know below!
