Despite Blizzard's prior claims that it would never happen, Overwatch is getting deathmatch modes.
The modes will use modified versions of existing maps already in the game, as well as a brand new one called Chateau Guillard, the former home of Widowmaker.
The mode is already available in Overwatch’s Public Test Region on PC, where you can play eight player Deathmatch that is first to 20 kills, or six-on-six Team Deathmatch that is first team to 30.
Mercy's resurrects remove kills from the total.
At full release, both modes will exist in Overwatch's Arcade.
Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan said Blizzard didn’t think deathmatch was right for the game because it wanted to focus on objective-based team modes.
However, the Arcade "opened up our ability as developers to introduce game modes to you guys that we wouldn’t normally feel comfortable putting in the Quick Play or Competitive rotation”, he said.
