The new Deathmatch mode, already available on the PTR, is coming to the Overwatch Arcade soon.
In Deathmatch players compete in teams to earn the most kills with an in-game scoreboard showing who’s winning.
Deathmatch will have 2 modes and a new map:
- FFA: 8 heroes clash in a first-to-20-kills battle.
- Team Deathmatch: a 6v6 team battle where the first team to claim 30 kills wins. Mercy resurrections take kills away from the rival team’s total score.
- New Deathmatch Map: besides several maps being modified for the Deathmatch mode, a new map called Chateau Guillard is being introduced to FFA games.
More details in the developer’s update video.
