About Ed Thorn

Ed will not rest until a new Wario Land is announced.

Overwatch's latest hero, Doomfist, will leave the PTR server and land in the live game next Thursday 27th July. The news was confirmed by Blizzard in a hero preview video released yesterday evening.

In it, the team discusses the development of the game's latest hero, from his subtle appearance in the game's very first reveal trailer, to the imminent release later this month. You can watch the whole thing right here:

Doomfist's divided opinion somewhat since he hit the test servers a few weeks ago. While the usual concerns about overpowered abilities have been aired, some have questioned whether this melee orientated Offense character really suits the style of the game.

If you haven't had a chance to get a feel for Doomfist yourself, you've just over a week to wait until he goes live. If you want to get ahead of the game before then, we've got a Doomfist guide which contains a huge amount of information on how to actually play this new hero.
