In a developer update video, Game Director Jeff Kaplan announced Overwatch is getting the classic FPS game modes Deathmatch (Free-For-All) and Team Deathmatch; Both game modes are currently available for testing on the PTR.

This is great news to Overwatch players since Team Deathmatch and Free-For-All were both heavily requested. Just like the Capture the Flag game mode, it’s unclear if Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch will be considered for a competitive environment.

Several old maps will be modified to adhere to the new gameplay. In celebration, a new map, Chateau Guillard, is being added specifically for Deathmatch. Kaplan went on to say Chateau Guillard is Widowmaker’s home estate, and has a few easter eggs that tie into her backstory.
