For some time now we have been hearing a lot of rumours and hints about Overwatch’s next suspected character, Doomfist.

Today Blizzard finally puts our minds to rest with the announcement of the gauntlet-wearing hero, Doomfist, whose real name is Akande Ogundimu.

Doomfist is a cybernetic offence character whose gauntlet can be used to knock opponents down with a hand cannon-like feel.

He can also slam the ground, knock enemies into the air and off balance, and even charge into enemies in a similar way to Reinhart with Rocket Punch.

Blizzard said the following about him:

“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.”

You can also check out the video below for a quick look.

Blizzard also explained more about it with the following developer update video:

You can play Doomfist in the PTR version of the game today.

If you play on console, or just don’t want to play on the PTR, here are some screens for a closer look at the character:
