You can play as Doomfist in Overwatch next week.

Blizzard announced today you’ll be able to step into the shoes of the one and only Doomfist when he arrives in Overwatch next week.

His release was revealed in a new developer video featuring the Overwatch team today, which takes you behind-the-scenes at the hero’s development.

Overwatch fans have been waiting for Doomfist for what seems like eons, and were finally graced with his presence on the PTR earlier this month.

If you’re late to the Doomfist party or have been hiding out in a seaweed hut on the beach for a few weeks (lucky gouger), here’s everything you need to know about the hero’s abilities and backstory – including no Terry Crews.

Those interested in how he plays and if Doomfist was worth the wait, may want to check out some hands-on impressions of the offensive hero.
