The newest playable character, Doomfist, can deal ranged damage with his hand cannon, or get up close and personal with his rocket punch, which will launch enemies into the air.

Doomfist is a major character in the Overwatch story, and players have been looking forward to his arrival in the game's roster. The sad news of all this is that Doomfist is not voiced by Terry Crews.

After months of hints and teases, Blizzard has officially announced Overwatch's 25th hero, Doomfist.

The Overwatch team at Blizzard has had to field questions almost constantly about new heroes, updates to current heroes, and any number of other fan queries for their wildly popular team-based shooter.

Earlier this week, Blizzard released a teaser suggesting that Akande Ogundimu-the legendary villain 'Doomfist'-could soon be joining the Overwatch lineup very soon.

Now that they're securing depth after signing Nene to a cheap deal, their roster is looking strong across the board. Nene turns 35 in September before next season starts.


Over on Reddit, "ArielleSweetSugar" laid out a timeline of events that highlighted how "Overwatch's" developers handled the release of Orisa and how that may impact the expected arrival of Doomfist.

Blizzard also provided a quick description of Doomfist to detail how his powers and abilities will work.

Ever the elusive character for Blizzard's hit shooter Overwatch, fans have chomping at the bit for any and all news they can find on his potential introduction into the game.

According to his profile page: Doomfist's cybernetics make him a highly-mobile, powerful frontline fighter.

Doomfist's primary attack is a somewhat dinky little shotgun. Another skill with the same advantages is his Seismic Slam, in which Doomfist leaps up into the air and smashes to the ground, dealing damage upon landing. Last but not least is his "Best Defense" ability which is similar to Reaper's new ability from the last update in which he generates a temporary shield whenever his other abilities damage the opposing team.
