Screw the Payload! Overwatch Has a Deathmatch Mode Now

Screw the Payload! Overwatch Has a Deathmatch Mode Now”

Game director Jeff Kaplan said that some of the Hybrid, Escort, and Assault maps have been slightly modified to better fit the new modes. It's a game about teamwork and objectives, after all. Deathmatch has a way of drastically de-prioritising both of those things.

The Deathmatch modes are live in the PTR right now and we'll see them enter the official game at a later date. "The coolest part of the Arcade", he explained, "is that it's opened up our ability to as developers to introduce game modes to you guys that we wouldn't normally feel comfortable putting in the quick-play or competitive rotation". Players will earn 1 point for their team whenever they land the final blow on an opponent and will lose 1 point for their team whenever they die to environmental damage (ex: falling off a cliff) or self-inflicted damage. All you've gotta worry about is eliminations.

If you're in the top four in each match, you'll get win credit toward your loot boxes.

Numerous existing maps will be modified to work better with a free-for-all mode and Overwatch is also introducing a brand new map called Château Guillard for the game mode. Located near Annecy in southeastern France, it is Widowmaker's family estate.

DM and TDM, much like any other game that features the mode, requires players or teams to reach a designated number of kills in order to win the game. The new game mode pits individuals and teams against each other in a race to reach a certain number of kills - 20 kills for free-for-all and 30 kills for team deathmatch. I'll probably steer clear until Blizzard realises this idea, while interesting on paper, is extremely bad.

Deathmatch is rolling out now on the Public Test Realm on PC, so you can already try it out in its testing state.
