Blizzard Entertainment’s famous comic strip shot, Overwatch, is getting a new patch for all of its platforms now. The new upgrade includes a slew of features like bug fixes, interface changes, hero updates, and most importantly, new game modes.
The primary mode will snare eight players from each other since they score for each final blow they land. For each person the player removes, they’ll get 1 point; some ecological or self-inflicted damage will lead to a 1 point loss. The first player to reach 20 wins the game. Team Deathmatch is very similar except it pins two teams of four against each other, and the game ends when a celebration reaches 30 points.
Both modes will be put in a couple of maps already accessible Overwatch. Here are the landscapes available for Deathmatch along with Team Deathmatch:
A brand new map, Château Guillard, will also be featured in the newest Arcade modes. The most recent location is set in southeastern France near Annecy, and is the home of everyone’s favored sniper, Widowmaker.
For those interested in the more combative surroundings of Competitive Play, the ranked mode has received new changes including the reduction of the duration of every year, the quantity of Competitive Points garnered after winning, and a whole lot more.
