Blizzard Adds Deathmatch to Overwatch


Share.

Now live on the PTR.

Overwatch Arcade will soon feature Deathmatch, Blizzard has announced.

Deathmatch, which is now available on the PTR, brings with it a new map and two new modes, including “Free-For-All,” which features 1v7 matches where players compete with the goal of being the first to get 20 kills. The other is “Team Deathmatch,” which pits two teams of six against each other, with goal of being the first team to rack up 30 kills. In this mode, Mercy resurrections will subtract kills from the other team’s kill count.

While several of Overmatch’s existing maps have been modified for Deathmatch, Blizzard is also adding a new map called Château Guillard that is designed specifically for two aforementioned new modes. Additionally, Deathmatch features a new scoreboard to keep track of your kills.

Overwatch’s Summer Games kicked off earlier this week and will run until August 29. The event features an improved Lucioball mode and an accompanying second stadium, as well as an assortment of unlockable cosmetic items, including a new set of skins.

Not too long ago, Blizzard added the cybernetically-enhanced villain Doomfist as a playable character.
