Overwatch Is Getting A Plain Old Deathmatch Mode

Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch game modes are coming to Overwatch

Kaplan, however, said the Arcade mode - which is all about changing up the Overwatch formula in fun ways - is a ideal course of action to introduce something like deathmatch. Team Deathmach takes two teams of 6 players each fighting to be the first to get 30 kills - the catch is that mercy resurrections subtract from the other team's count.

Blizzard has modified a number of maps to accommodate these new modes, restricting the play area and tweaking the respawn system to better suit the pace of Deathmatch.

The Overwatch Team Deathmatch is a brand new mode that Blizzard has just introduced into the PTR for people to sample.

Interestingly, Overwatch's deathmatch mode will be a little unconventional compared to what players are used to.




Here's everything you need to know: Two new game modes have been added to the Arcade: Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch. With the game focused on team work, adding a deathmatch mode would be totally against the game's core goal. The map dubbed Château Guillard will be seen in action in the developer's update video.

In Deathmatch mode, eight players go head-to-head until one player scores 20 points.

Both Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch will be playable on Hanamura, Horizon Lunar Colony, Temple of Anubis, Volskaya Industries, Dorado, Eichenwalde, Hollywood, and King's Row. Winning Arcade games also helps you earn extra loot boxes each week.

What do you think of the addition of deathmatch to Overwatch? Console players, you'll likely have to wait a few weeks for Blizzard to iron out all of the bugs and make everything available publicly. Having said that, the team will also implement a new stage called Chateau Guillard, which will show us the home in which Widowmaker lived before marrying Gerard Lacroix.
