Overwatch Developer Update – New Mode Deathmatch Including A New Map

A new game mode, Deathmatch, is coming soon to the Overwatch Arcade and is now available on the PTR. 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.

Deathmatch will include two modes and a new map:


In Free-For-All, eight heroes clash in a first-to-20-kills battle.

Team Deathmatch

Team Deathmatch is a 6v6 team-based fight with the first side to 30 kills claiming victory. Mercy resurrections will take kills away from the other team’s total score.

New Deathmatch Map

Several maps have been modified to accommodate the new Deathmatch mode. Additionally, we’re introducing a new map, Chateau Guillard, for Free-For-All games.

For more details on all of the above, check out our latest developer update video.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
