Blizzard Entertainment has revealed a brand new hero for Overwatch, the long rumored Doomfist. The hero was revealed in the form of an origin trailer featuring gorgeously animated visuals.
Doomfist’s cybernetics make him a highly-mobile, powerful frontline fighter. In addition to dealing ranged damage with his Hand Cannon, Doomfist can slam the ground, knock enemies into the air and off balance, or charge into the fray with his Rocket Punch. When facing a tightly packed group, Doomfist leaps out of view, then crashes down to earth with a spectacular Meteor Strike.
Doomfist will be made available in a future PTR update. You can check out his moves in detail from here. Doomfist also carries a difficulty rating of 3 making it a rather moderate to use player for newcomers and fans alike.
Doomfist has been long rumored to be one of the newest characters to be added to Overwatch however it wasn’t until recently that his addition was confirmed in a teaser hidden on the official website. Terry Crews was in line to voice Doomfist but sadly it looks like he won’t be the one to perform this task instead Blizzard Entertainment has picked up someone else for this role.
Overwatch is available now for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
