Overwatch players are invited to check out the latest and greatest hero: Doomfist.

Overwatch fans have been waiting for Doomfist since before the game even released, and now he’s finally here.

Well, here’s here on the PTR, the Overwatch test server only available on PC. But don’t worry if you can’t hop on and try him out; Arekkz has captured plenty of Doomfist footage for you to enjoy below.

As well as showing off the man in action, the video discusses Doomfists’s abilities and recaps his backstory as revealed by the Overwatch team today.

Seeing Doomfist in action, it seems he’s going to be a good choice for those Overwatch players who like to get in among the action and unleash hell. More work for the long suffering healers of the Overwatch community, then! Seriously someone go healer. And get on the payload.

Anyway, take a look at Doomfist in action in Overwatch in the video below, and get to know this hard-hitting martial artist.

We almost believed it wasn’t going to happen after that weird Overwatch blog business earlier in the week, but here he is: Doomfist is now in Overwatch.
