Overwatch's New Lore Update Teases Doomfist's Arrival

Overwatch's New Lore Update Teases Doomfist's Arrival

Blizzard hinted that there might be a character with that name coming to the game, and the rumors only intensified when actor Terry Crews started tweeting about providing the voice for the character.

That's the million dollar question - but based on Blizzard's previous reveals (most notably for Orisa), we have a pretty decent idea of when Akande Ogundimu will make his debut.

"Information and details of what happened were scarce as has been any news from the installation, said to be a prison for the world's most risky threats", the official Blizzard post reads. However, the terrorist group known as Talon managed to free Akande after a surprise attack seemingly launched by Reaper. This backstory adds some intriguing context to the events leading up to the Numbani which have been teasing players since the announcement of the last hero Orisa. In a faux news article from the Times of Numbani, Blizzard has all but confirmed that we'll be seeing Doomfist in Overwatch sooner than expected.

Blizzard has updated the official Overwatch website with new story details alluding to Doomfist, a character fans have been wanting for some time now.

The history of Doomfist goes quite deep into the lore of Overwatch having first been teased since the first cinematic trailer for the game. Initially, security reported that there were not any passengers on board according to radar scans.

DUP head: Talks with UK Conservatives going well
If that happens, Corbyn will demand a chance to try to form a government by uniting progressive factors in the House of Commons. But a deal with the DUP also risks destabilizing Northern Ireland by increasing the influence of pro-British unionists.

Unlike many shooters, whose multiplayer avatars are soldiers without identity, Overwatch's heroes have backstories, personalities, and dialogue.

It is now unknown when an official reveal of the next character will be or even if Doomfist will come at all. It continues to say "Video surveillance from within the compound revealed a black shadowy figure emerging from the craft and descending upon the prison grounds".

"The unidentified assailant easily overcame the Helix security agents, leaving over a dozen dead". This may just be all about revealing some other heroes instead. Ogundimu is believed to be aligned with the villains of Overwatch, but could also take on traits of an anti-hero.

Here's hoping this isn't another teaser setting up a new hero who isn't Doomfist.
