Deathmatch in Two Flavors Coming Soon in Arcade Mode

Deathmatch in Two Flavors Coming Soon in Arcade Mode

The new modes can be found in the Arcade section of Overwatch. According to the developer update below, Deathmatch requires a player to get 20 kills first, in the Team Deathmatch game, the first team to reach 30 kills wins. The same rules apply but if players are resurrected prior to respawning via Mercy's Ultimate then those points will be deducted from the enemy team's score.

Deathmatch and Chateau Guillard are still only available in the PTR, but, as is the case with all new content, will be released on all Overwatch platforms within the coming weeks.

Overwatch has been one of the most popular first person shooters since it launched nearly a year and a half ago, but it's been missing one key FPS game mode its entire life: deathmatch. In the latter, it's every player for him- or herself. Moreover, there will be two types of play to this mode: Free-For-All and Team Deathmatch. As Jeff Kaplan announces in a new developer update, Arcade is the ideal place to implement the deathmatch mode players have been requesting for more than a year. In addition, a new map has also been unveiled.

As for character selection for the Free-For-All mode, you should probably go for someone with a decent damage output, who would usually lead the attack in Payload or Capture the Point modes. Being in the top half of the FFA mode will credit the player with a win which will count toward getting loot boxes in Arcade Mode. You can find the full patch notes for the current PTR, as well as instructions on how to access it, in this post on the official Overwatch blog. As such, the previous stance against Overwatch Deathmatch was reversed. The new deathmatch modes will also include a brand-new map important to Widowmaker's in-game history.
