Doomfist is Definitely Coming to Overwatch

Doomfist is widely expected to be the next playable character in hugely popular PS4, Xbox One and PC shooter Overwatch.

"Doomfist fires a short-range burst from the knuckles of his fist". In addition, Doomfist is able to charge up a rocket punch and generate personal shields when he causes extra damage.

- Rising Uppercut - Doomfist punches enemies in front of him up in the air.

"Doomfist leaps into the sky, then crashes to the ground, dealing significant damage".

His second ability channels his internal Street Fighter with an uppercut that would make Ryu jealous. It launches Doomfist up into the air, dealing damage on connect but also providing manoeuvrability.

His Ult is called Meteor Strike.

Akande Ogundimu (I'll let you try to pronounce that on your own time) or Doomfist, is an offensive character meant to help push objectives and deal out big damage. "It can now be confirmed that what occurred was an attack by the Talon organization with the express goal of freeing one man: Akande Ogundimu, better known as Doomfist".

Even before his release, Overwatch's story is expanding. He's a major part of the Talon leadership, Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan said in a Developer's Update-meaning Reaper isn't the sole leader of Talon. Blizzard told Gamespot it was actually Ngaujah, a Broadway actor who also appeared in movies including The Signal (2007), Stomp the Yard (2007), and Money Monster (2016). Crews had originally mocked up an audition for the role and was invited to the Blizzard HQ, prompting many fans to believe he was bringing Doomfist to life. Given how long the introduction of other new characters Sombra and Orisa took, we're still probably a way off seeing Doomfist in all his glory. But you may notice something a little different than what you were expecting if you listen to Doomfist's speaking voice.
