After months of anticipation and teases, the melee-focused combatant Doomfist arrived a few weeks ago in the game’s Public Test Region as the latest character to join the Overwatch roster, and now those looking to take the mantle of Doomfist will be able to do so officially next week.
Blizzard Entertainment has announced that Doomfist will officially be released across consoles and PC on July 27th, 2017, marking the character’s exit from the PTR server and out into the wild for all players to try out.
Alongside the reveal of Doomfist’s arrival in the game, Blizzard also provided a brand new preview video with several of the Overwatch development team members going deeper into the design and creation of Doomfist, and how he fits into the game’s overall world and lore.
A prominent figure in Overwatch‘s lore, Doomfist marks a notable difference from many of the characters in the title as his focus, gameplay-wise, is mobility and getting up close and personal against other characters thanks to his powerful fist moves and dashes that can close the distance between him and other characters.
Overwatch is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and Doomfist will make his entry into the game on July 27th, 2017 – in the meantime, you can check out the brand new preview video for the character below:
