Team Deathmatch and Free-For-All Modes Confirmed for Overwatch

Blizzard buffs four heroes on 'Overwatch' PTR, details here Team Deathmatch and Free-For-All Modes Confirmed for Overwatch

Along with it, the developers have created several variants of the existing maps in order to improve the support for the deathmatch games. Deathmatch is a simple game mode where players and teams compete to earn the most kills-an in-game scoreboard keeps track of the action and show who's winning. 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.

According to game director Jeff Kaplan, some of the maps for the other modes in Overwatch had to be slightly modified to better fit the two new modes.

One of Overwatch's most requested modes is finally making its way into the game.

Most of Overwatch revolves around two teams of six players going after objectives, like pushing a payload or capturing a zone. The core experience sees you go up against seven other players and requires you to reach 20 kills to win.

Already available on the PC Public Test Region, an Overwatch Deathmatch mode is coming soon to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, Blizzard announced today. There will also be new maps added to the game. For now, and as always, both modes remain in testing on the PTR and will be pushed to the live servers via an update whenever Blizzard is good and ready.

If you still want some teamwork, Blizzard is also introducing Team Deathmatch. The map, known as Chateau Guillard, is a picturesque French manor estate located near Annecy in the south of France. 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. You'll still collect Arcade loot boxes as long as you end up being in the top half of players in a match.
