Overwatch's Deathmatch mode is the Free-For-All we've been waiting for

Blizzard comes up with Deathmatch for OverWatch

Just like every other deathmatch mode out there, you try to kill as many players as possible while in-game. Mercy mains will also be pleased to hear that their "Heroes never die!" resurrections will remove kills from enemy tallies, allowing teams with the Swiss medic in their roster to put some distance between them and their rivals.

The Overwatch team has revealed a new game mode coming to the Arcade.

Overwatch's Deathmatch game modes will go live on the PTR today, August 10, and will enter onto the live servers at a later date.

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

In Team Deathmatch mode, two teams of four players face off until one team scores 30 points.

The new modes - Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch - and map are already available in the Public Test Region (PTR) on Windows PC. In addition, new maps have been brought in that were designed specifically for Free-for-All. Bear in mind that although there can only be one victor of this mode, Jeff Kaplan did reveal that if you place in the top half of the scoreboard at the end of the game, it'll count as a win towards you earning your Loot Boxes in the Arcade for the week. That being said, some players have been demanding a particular game mode that has been missing from the game since it launched. A number of the game's existing maps have been adapted for the mode as well.

In The Arcade you will be able to join a Deathmatch or Team Deathmatch mode.

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.

Further, standard Deathmatch will get its own specific map called Château Guillard, an estate in the south of France and Widowmaker's family home. As such, the previous stance against Overwatch Deathmatch was reversed.
