It seems that #Blizzard Entertainment will add #Doomfist to the "#Overwatch" roster within this week for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, along with the second "Summer Games" event.

Doomfist is coming

The addition of Doomfist in the game's roster is something that console users have been anticipating since PC users were able to play the new character in its Public Test Realm (PTR). Blizzard is scheduled to launch on July 27, as the game developers stated that Doom fist's creation and brawling style is based on some of the classic 2D fighting games.

Game director Jeff Kaplan stated that while the upcoming character is a villain in the game, he is not necessarily bad.

Doomfist simply upholds a moral code imbued with "strength and honor." Some of the members of the development team opened up on his creation with glee and delight, calling him the very "cool-sounding" moniker.

While gaming fans questioned the decision of not using "White Chicks" actor Terry Crews as the voice behind the character, the development team have their reasons for it. He is voiced by Sahr Ngaujah in the game.

"We love Terry. Terry's awesome. He came and visited us. We had a great time. But when we're looking for Doomfist, we were looking for something very specific given his role in the game and everything," Senior designer Michael Chu said.

The new character will first have changes regarding gameplay, as some of the players complained that he is too overpowered and needs to be tweaked to level the playing field.

Blizzard wants the character to blend perfectly with the rest of the "Overwatch" cast as much as possible so that players can enjoy him during matches.

The second "Summer Games" event

Aside from Doomfist being added to the roster, Blizzard is also bringing back the "Summer Games" event in "Overwatch" soon. The Summer Games event is the first major event of the online first-person shooter, which featured Olympic themed outfits, lots and even a mini-game called "Lucio Ball."

Several gaming fans speculated that there would be a new brawl mode for the Summer Games event, replacing Lucio Ball. Other reports stated that data miners were able to uncover new national flag player icons in the test server files.

Blizzard might also release new weapon skins [VIDEO] for each character. Two notable instances that character's weapon does not match their weapons is Sombra's SMG being green and Soldier: 76's pulse rifle is dark with orange accents despite both having default skins.

These suggest that developers are toying with new ideas for the each cast members weapons in "Overwatch," and it will be addressed very soon.
