Deathmatch is Coming to Overwatch

Deathmatch is Coming to Overwatch

There's the traditional Deathmatch mode, which will feature eight players in a free-for-all brawl, where the first player to secure 20 kills wins the 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.

"We've made several modifications to many of these maps (including restricting play to a specific area and developing a special respawn system) when playing in these modes", Blizzard added.

The launch of Deathmatch modes on the game's PC-only PTR happens right in the middle of the latest Overwatch event, Summer Games 2017. I'm glad Deathmatch is finally here because sometimes you just want to go around shooting other players and not having to worry about objectives or sticking close to teammates. Yet that's exactly what Blizzard announced today, releasing both a Deathmatch and a Team Deathmatch mode to the game's Public Test Region (PTR) in advance of a full release in the imminent future. In addition, new maps have been brought in that were designed specifically for Free-for-All.

Maps that these two modes can be played in include Hanamura, Volskaya Industries, Dorado, Eichenwalde, Hollywood and King's Row. Winning Arcade games also helps you earn extra loot boxes each week. However, it seems Blizzard thinks that it can be a great Battle Royale platform as well since a Deathmatch mode is apparently in the works. The home of Widowmaker, this French estate resembles buildings seen in the Dishonored series, and it should provide some close-range combat opportunities, which is ironic, given that the Widowmaker is a sniper. According to "Overwatch" game director, Jeff Kaplan, Genji is the top pick in Quick Play matches between August 2 and August 9, 2017.
