Overwatch’s Doomfist goes live next week, here’s how he came to be
Tancrid "Tank" Muller·
Doomfist. There’s just something about that name, man.
Overwatch‘s most anticipated new hero was finally unveiled about two weeks ago and has been stuck in the game’s PTR (Public Test Realm) ever since. Luckily, Blizzard has uploaded a new hero preview video for the character, and it confirms that the wait is so close to being over you can almost punch it in the face!
That’s right, come 27 July, Doomfist will finally leave the PTR and be added to the main game. Other than revealing the hero’s launch date, the video also gives us a glimpse at his inception and development, and does an absolutely bang-up job of turning the hype-o-meter to the MAX.
If you’d like a closer look at the character’s abilities, want to watch his origin story trailer, or just want to listen to the game’s director talk about how awesome he is, go here.
