Doomfist finally revealed and he won’t be voiced by Terry Crews
Overwatch's latest hero is playable on PTR now.
While Sombra's reveal may have felt long and drawn out, there's one Overwatch hero who has been teased from the very first cinematic, where we saw the now iconic Doomfist power glove encased in a museum. Since that very first tease, there have been countless nods and easter eggs that have pointed towards a new Doomfist (a mantle that's been passed between heroes and villains throughout the history of Overwatch's lore).
Today, Blizzard officially revealed the latest incarnation of Doomfist, the ex-con and mercenary Akande Ogundimu.
Akande joins the likes of McCree, Genji and Tracer as an offence character with a three-star difficulty rating. His abilities include Hand Cannon, a short-range projectile fired from his glove, Seismic Slam, which closes the distance between you and your enemy, Rising Uppercut, which throws Doomfist and the enemy in front of him into the air, and Rocket Punch, a powerful punch that deals damage on connection and more again if the enemy is punched into a wall.
Doomfist's ultimate attack is called Meteor Strike, which looks to be a combination of the lunge of Winston's Jump Pack and the radial damage of Reinhardt's Earthshatter.
Surprisingly, Doomfist will not be voiced by Terry Crews, despite months of rumours and hints of support from the man himself. He will instead be voiced by theatre actor and director Sahr Ngauja.
Xbox owners will get a healthy serving of Crews when Crackdown 3 is eventually released, but if we've learned anything from our time with Overwatch, we shouldn't give up hope for Crews in Overwatch. Blizzard has a healthy habit of pandering to its fans with its content.
Doomfist will be available on consoles in the next few weeks. If you're not on the Overwatch bandwagon yet, see where you can find it for the best price in Australia.
