After weeks of staying in the Public Test Realm, the newest character Doomfist has finally arrived in “#Overwatch.” The gauntlet-wearing hero is now playable, both on Quick Play and Competitive Play. It is about time, really. According to PVP Live, the 25th character in “Overwatch” is now officially part of the roster. #Blizzard released him on the live servers, along with a brand new trailer. Here is everything about it in a nutshell.

Doomfist now officially part of the game

The long-awaited character made its way to the Public Test Realm [VIDEO] a few weeks back. The studio was busy releasing update after update, making sure that the antihero was well-balanced.

After all, it is the main purpose of PTR. Fortunately, he is no longer a test subject. Players can now play the character on the official servers. With this arrival, it will be interesting to see how players will adjust to him.

It is worth noting that Doomfist got nerfed prior to his arrival in “Overwatch.” His Rocket Punch’s distance was decreased based on the feedback from the community. It appears that the previous build [VIDEO] proved to be too much. Now that he is part of the official roster, players can expect Blizzard to be more focused on balancing the hero. This is due to the fact that he is going to affect the overall competitiveness in the game. But for now, it is best for players to enjoy his current build.

A new trailer was released

As expected from the studio, a new “Overwatch” trailer was released specifically for Doomfist’s arrival.

The video showcases his powers, highlighting his golden right hand – the infamous gauntlet. He also arrives with a handful of skins and cosmetics, though these are expected to be expanded later on. He has an interesting spray that mimics the pose of the kid from the original debut trailer. Basically, the one with Winston and Tracer fighting against Reaper and Widowmaker.

It holds true, though, that many “Overwatch” players are still concerned with the hero’s capabilities [VIDEO]. Some believe that he is still too mobile and too powerful. Whether or not this is true, it is safe to say that he is going to be part of the titular dive comp. He is to join the ranks of Genji, Winston, and Tracer, among others. Perhaps with the arrival of another update, and with changes to various heroes, Doomfist’s significance will be affected -- especially since Junkrat is getting a triple-jump ability. Things are definitely exciting in the game right now.
