Deathmatch Finally Comes To 'Overwatch' Today In New Patch

Along with a bunch of bug fixes, Overwatch received a new patch today that will finally add the feature that people have been demanding almost since launch: Deathmatch. More specifically, it is added regular deathmatch and team deathmatch games to the title across every platform.  The addition is set to quench the thirst of those who have been looking for blood rather than team gameplay in escort and capture missions.

Deathmatch Finally Comes To 'Overwatch' Today In New Patch

The first match setting for solo players focuses on having eight people in a room together with only one survivor. Your goal is to nail the final blow for points, but any environmental or self-inflicted damage will remove a point from your own score; as teams will be trying to rack up 20 points in a round. Team works the same way with four vs. four, except the goal for that version is to have your team make it to 30 points. The mode isn't in Season 6, so far it has been relegated to the Arcade with the following maps below designated for team and single-player fights.

  • Hanamura
  • Horizon Lunar Colony
  • Temple of Anubis
  • Volskaya Industries
  • Dorado
  • Eichenwalde
  • Hollywood
  • King's Row
  • (Team only) Black Forest
  • (Team only) Castillo
  • (Team only) Ecopoint: Antarctica
  • (Team only) Necropolis
