Overwatch Introduces Deathmatch to Arcade Mode

'Overwatch' Update: Roadhog and Junkrat buffs are hitting PTR “very soon,” Jeff Kaplan confirms

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.

When these game modes roll out on the PTR or when they launch on the live servers, you can find them in Overwatch's Arcade section. Coming soon to the arcade mode, and actually playable in the PTR right now, is the new Deathmatch game mode. But in Team Deathmatch, there's a catch: Mercy resurrections will take kills away from your kill count, so you're going to want to shut that nonsense down in a hurry. This means players won't rage at you for being Hanzo or Widowmaker all the time.

Several maps have been modified to accommodate the new death match mode. Deathmatch takes Overwatch back to first-person shooter basics, giving players points for nothing but kills. There are even boons for playing as certain characters, and the maps themselves draw from a different pool than the free-for-all variant. And out of the eight, only the top four will qualify for progress toward loot boxes. For hundreds of years, it was the estate of the influential Guillard family, until it gradually fell into disrepair after the family's power waned in the decades after the Revolution.

In Overwatch's FFA, you'll be gunning against seven other players to reach 20 kills. Additionally, story elements for the character will be sprinkled throughout the map similar to Winston and the Horizon Lunar Colony map.

"I know at one point I said we would never have deathmatch in Overwatch - well, surprise, never say never", Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan said in his latest "developer update" video. Kaplan explained the Overwatch sniper's home features a mix of open areas, tight corridors, and jump pads.
