After months of waiting, gamers can finally play as Doomfist in Blizzard’s Overwatch, as the character released on the game’s PTR just last week. When the update files added the highly-anticipated character to the game, they came without any of the Nigerian mercenary’s skins but fans can now see every Doomfist cosmetic that the title has to offer.
As usual, Doomfist has a collection of slight color changes for his Rare skins: Daisy, Lake, Plains, and Sunset. After that, the melee-fighter has two epic skins, Cheetah and Painted, which significantly change the hero’s appearance. Finally, the Overwatch hero will launch with four legendary skins: Caution, Irin, Avatar, and Spirit. Some of the skins focus on the character’s heritage and country of origin, while others highlight his robotic fist. One of the looks even has the character looking a bit like Jack from Tekken, complete with metallic skin.
The latest addition to the Overwatch roster will also be getting a range of new cosmetics as part of the upcoming Summer Games event, according to a recent datamine. Players that disappointed with Doomfist’s current selection of skins likely won’t have to wait long until a Nigeria/sports-themed skin is added to the character’s collection, along with some other potential looks for the cahracter.
If Doomfist does get a Summer Games skin it could be a boxing outfit, which fits his method of up-close and personal fighting perfectly. Shortly after the character released, one dedicated fan used a boxing glove as a controller for Doomfist, so it’s safe to say that the fan-base would be more than receptive should this prediction prove to be correct.
So far the character is the source of a lot of hype in the game’s player base, and fans are racing to pick the new addition in every game on the PTR. With all the raw data coming in, Blizzard is sure to be making some adjustments to ensure that Overwatch continues to be balanced before the latest Talon operative can make his appearance in the title for real.
Overwatch is available now for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Doomfist is currently available on the Public Test Realm, exclusively on PC.
